Mantra meditation is an open studio to settle into stillness preluding the flow of asana class. Present practitioners may quietly sit, stretch on their mats, or join in a healing mantra circle chanting sanskrit to awaken latent liberations. The mantras unlock stuck vibrations of light and sound in the body simply be being present to or participating in the recitation. Stepping into yoga poses from this deep seat is quintessential to the pinnacle shakti flow yoga experience. If you sit in the circle you will inevitably learn sanskrit at least well enough to chant it.
Shakti Flow Yoga
All-levels shakti flow yoga classes focus on the union of breath with movement and the relationship between stillness and flow. Practitioners are encouraged to allow the internal flows of energy, stoked by the movement of the body, to inform the authenticity of the alignment of the poses. Shakti flow yoga lineage teachings are experienced through asana, meditation, mantra, and pranayama practices. Appropriate for all levels of experience, some familiarity with flow yoga through beginner classes is recommended.
