+ Rhythmic Vinyasa: The Power of Collective Flow
Rhythmic Vinyasa: The Power of Collective Flow Instructor: Shiva Rea
In Prana Flow, vinyasa is more than a technique--it is a wave, a rhythmic cycle. Within yoga, understanding these cycles is key to creating flow within one's body and life. We'll do a practice dedicated to rhythmic syncopation within the body and in the collective to help you understand the healing power of rhythm. Come learn methods developed within Prana Flow to embody rhythmic vinyasa as a technique within practice and as an optimal way of living flow.
