Cait Simmons instructs the following:
Heated Vinyasa Flow
These classes link postures to balance the body and clear the energy channels in order to fully experience the energetic effects of the practice. Inhalations are linked to moves expanding the front of the body, creating lightness. Exhalations are linked to movements that engage the abdomen and create stability. The breath used in Flow/Vinyasa, ujjayi pranayama or whisper breath, creates a vibration across the soft palate of the mouth, warming the breath as it enters the body.
A gentle flow class suitable for prenatal and postnatal women. This class will connect students with their bodies in preparation for or to recover from birth. All levels.
Slow Gentle Flow
This 60 minute session begins with centering and warm ups, then moves to a soft vinyasa (flowing sequence - movement with breath). Sun salutations are included, and asanas are held slightly longer in this class. Slow Flow Yoga also involves abdominal strengthening and a standing sequence. Floor work includes hip openers, gentle backbends, and gentle inversions are explored. The Slow Flow Yoga sessions ends with a period of cooling and deep relaxation (shavasana). Modifications and props are always available to assist with flexibility.
