One of the unique things about our studio is the fact that it brings a community of highly skilled teachers who have made beautiful Bowen Island their home together, accessible for the first time with one class pass. This is an urban model for a small island town, and we hope that it will provide our members and visitors with the diversity and flexibility that a growing personal practice of yoga often demands, especially when competing with other commitments like work and raising families—and of course, ferry schedules!
This lively and energetic class uses movement to warm muscles, build strength and balance, and uses breath to rinse through the body releasing toxins, encouraging flexibility and concentration. Come and enjoy the invigorating and rejuvenating effects of rhythmic breath and movement. This class is taught by a variety of teachers, each with their own particular teaching style.
Suitable for intermediate to advanced students, or reasonably fit beginners as the teacher will always offer modifications.
Slow Flow will gracefully move you through postures at a pace set by your breath. Look forward to a holistic, well balanced class that leaves your body feeling rejuvenated, your mind rest, and your spirit recharged.
All ages and levels welcome. Suitable for beginners and advanced practitioners looking for a nourishing, gentle flow class.
This class is preceded by an open, free, guided meditation led by Jen Lafferty from 9-9:20am. Everybody welcome, regardless of experience.
