Discovery Yoga classes have resumed at
the Flow Suite Yoga Studio

St. Augustine Beach
Yin Yoga with Live Sound Bath Mondays 6:00-7:15 pm at Flow Suite Studio
With creative use of props, Yin Yoga maintains postures--in a relaxed manner--for a few minutes rather than a few breaths. Focusing on stillness, it has a distinct meditative quality and can be done in a challenging or gentle way. By reshaping the fascia and connective tissue, yin yoga improves joint mobility, breathing efficiency, postural alignment, and recovery from injury. Classes include a sound bath (nada yoga) with tone drums, chimes, etc. to deepen the yin experience.
Yoga Basics Class (beginner friendly) Thursdays 6:00 pm-7:15 pm at Flow Suite Studio
This dynamic yet gentle class is for beginners as well as those who want to renew or deepen their practice. Classes include centering, warmups, postures, breathwork, meditation and relaxation. Using teaching demonstrations and detailed guidance, each class will introduce and review a few select postures (or breathing/meditation techniques)--including plenty of modifications and variations for different body types. This is a slow and fun class focusing on learning the basics of yoga. Ideal for couples, families and friends to share together.
Qigong & T'ai Chi Form
Wednesdays 11:30 am-12:30 pm Outdoors by the Sea (contact us for details)
Qigong is the cultivation of our life force (qi or prana) using gentle breathing and visualization to increase vitality and wellness. It's often called "Chinese Yoga." The graceful, dancelike Tai Chi form is one method of qigong. We'll learn a variety of standing and sitting qigong methods as well as the famous Cheng Man-Ching tai chi form. This is an hour long class. We will be working outside by the ocean, under a covered pavilion, to enhance the circulation of qi!
Kripalu Yoga (all levels)
Explore the edge of challenge and ease, will and surrender, in this traditional hatha yoga lineage. Develop strength, flexibility and balance in a dynamic yet relaxed way that brings the form into your body, rather than forcing the body into a form. The focus is on going slow, diving deep, and releasing with grace. This 90 minute class includes an opening centering; developmental warmups; a varying sequence of postures (with modifications and variations); pranayama; meditation; and a closing relaxation or yoga nidra. Open to all levels of experience.
