Warm Therapeutic Power Flow is a combination of a warm room (80 degrees), a therapeutic and safe approach to postures, meditation and alignment while developing emotional, mental and physical strength. This class is especially great for those looking to develop past a beginner practice on the emotional and mental side of yoga, as some of the greatest challenges in life are not how many pushups you can do, but how strong your mental and emotional practices and habits are when you find yourself in a challenging position on any level. Come discover yogic techniques for uncovering the warrior within and learn the habits of happiness! This class follows the trauma-sensitive guidelines set forth by the Trauma Center at the Justice Resource Institute in Boston, MI, a world leader in trauma-sensitive yoga.
