What kind of morning person are you? Do you wake up ready to go, or does your body and mind need a bit of coaxing to bring your energy levels up? Balanced Flow Yin Yang Yoga meets you in the middle with the benefits of a restful floor based practice to calm your over-active morning mind and active standing poses to rejuvenate your sluggish morning body.
Balanced Flow combines the passive yin style stretches and the more active poses of yang style with breath work and meditation, resulting in a practice that explores deep surrender AND activates your dynamic spirit.
Yin Yoga is a floor based style with deep seated stretches, twists and folds. Yang Yoga is the vinyasa style with standing poses and sun salutations.
This is a great practice for students of all levels. Most poses you are proably familiar with and practice already. The difference is, in this session the more passive yin poses come first, followed by the more active yang poses. The long-held passive poses of yin, practiced while the muscles are not yet warm, allows energy and circulation to reach the deeper muscles and connective tissues of the joints. In the yang practice that follows, the yin energy is already flowing, so you are more open and require less warm-up. This helps you go deeper with less effort.

My journey into yoga began about eight years ago on the advice of my doctor, Colleen Nolan APRN. Colleen, also being my Mom's Doctor, encouraged me to try yoga before taking a medicinal route for anxiety and depression. Was she ever on the money.
Yoga was not an instant love for me. I was intimidated, fearful, and did not have a single friend here who I could go with. It took a huge amount of courage, to go in and sign up. The teachers I had and still practice under were real women: funny, serious, curvy, toned, younger, older, intuitive, warm and light-hearted. One thing they all had in common was that they cared about their students, recognized them, called them by name, asked questions and just had a connection to them. I felt love from these strangers, and I was hooked. I'm a forever student of yoga and try to further my education as opportunities arise, as well as popping into near and far studios in my free time. My first 200hr training was with Christina Alexa through Abhyasa Yoga Institute, and my second 200hr training was with Melissa Scagliarini and Katie O'Connell at Vidya Vinyasa Yoga. I've also studied in Yin Yoga with Josh Summers and Thai Yoga with Karen Kenney.
