Discovery Yoga classes have resumed at

the Flow Suite Yoga Studio

Biera Mar Plaza, 5114 A1A South,

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.  

  • Discovery Yoga Basics Training Course (with Karuna and Scott)  

This is a 10 week course designed for beginners as well as those who want to renew and deepen their practice.  Each week we introduce new postures--with detailed instruction for safety and alignment, including teaching demonstrations as well as modifications and variations for different body types.  Each week also reviews previous classes to develop cumulatively.  You'll learn 28 classic postures (asanas) and 6 breathing (pranayama) techniques, plus proven methods for relaxation and stress reduction. Great for families, friends, coworkers and couples to experience together.

  • Yoga and Miracles (with Karuna)

Yoga and Miracles is a transformative journey weaving vinyasa sequences with meditation, affirmation, and ritual to release old patterns, dive into the fertile void, and retrieve new insight and inspiration. Like hitting the "reset button," this class is most conducive to clearing your mind and opening your heart.  All levels of experience welcome.
