Sarah Parker-Givens instructs the following:
Open to all levels, our Gentle Yoga class is designed to connect breath, alignment, and mindfulness with basic yoga postures. Based on the Kripalu tradition of cultivating inner peace, these classes focus on stretching and attention to breath during a relaxing flow. Especially good for anyone who wants a slower paced, less strenuous class. All levels.
Basic flow is a great class for new or seasoned practitioners. It is gentle and focuses on slow moving postures synchronized with the breath. The practice itself is much like a moving meditation when undertaken with intention and mindfulness. It is a wonderful way to prepare the body and mind for seated meditation and to release stress.
