Slow Flow teaches us to move with intention. Whether you are a new student or have been practicing for a while, there may be a tendency to move in it and out of Vinyasa postures too quickly, which can create a sloppy form and lead to injury. Slow Flow allows you to drop into the integrity of the pose, giving you time to breath, stretch and adjust your body in each posture. The practitioner has time to evaluate how a pose should be modified, and also time to mentally engage with the body. Slow flow bridges the mind body connection – it creates a reflective practice and a time to go inward and build strength.
