Do you want supple strength and composed calm? Do you want to feel good during and after your workout? Join the Slow Flow revolution! Do you find that some classes are too fast for you? Do you want to be able to feel what you’re doing? Would you like to have more understanding of proper technique so that you are safe and gain the greatest benefit from your yoga practice?
Come and enjoy the delicious synthesis of movement, breath, and energy that is the hallmark of Kevin Kortan’s Slow Flow classes. When we take time, our nervous systems relax, our minds slow down, our muscles become supple, our breath deepens – our inner chemistry shifts towards a biological balance, which one experiences as peace, tranquility, relaxation, emerging bliss.
Slow Flow Yoga is based on aligning with the fluid, organismic intelligence of your body. This is a very different approach than the mechanistic, militaristic model of most exercise systems, including much of the yoga that is being offered in today’s marketplace. Many slogans of the “fitness industry” such as “No Pain, No Gain”, “Hard Bodies”, “Buns of Steel”, and “Killer Abs” have poisoned our bodyminds, brainwashing us to often exercise in a way that is joyless, full of drudgery, and often violent, resulting in rigid bodies and inflexible minds, often causing injury and lacking in the pleasure that is one of the characteristics of intelligent movement.
There is an alternative!!!
The deep wisdom of true yoga lies in the understanding that each one of us is different. ONE SIZE DOES NOT FIT ALL! In Kevin Kortan’s Slow Flow class, you will learn to honor and work with your individuality, experiencing for yourself the yogic wisdom of “Unity through Diversity.”
