In Slow Flow breath and movement are connected. Time is given to find alignment and to refine and strengthen the poses. Slow Flow allows the practitioner to become familiar with his or her body, to create a thoughtful pause and find the time to go inward. This slower pace leads to the meditative practices of mindfulness of action and awareness of breathing.
Slow Flow is beneficial to newer students, those who desire deep concentration within their practice, those who have suffered an injury or have poor balance as it stimulates sweating and circulation and improves strength, flexibility, mobility, and overall concentration.
