Slow flow yoga at the USC
Vinyasa yoga is a form of yoga that links the breath, movement (flow), and asanas together and is seen as a powerful and quick discipline, where practitioners synchronize breath and movement.
Slow Flow (Vinyasa) yoga allows beginners to create their own synchronized flow, learning how to master the poses and how to move, breathe, and stretch.
Slow Flow brings the element of time into the practice. The practitioner has time to evaluate how and when a pose should be modified, due to our physical or mental borders and how we feel that day. The practitioner has the time to mentally engage with the body, as it moves through a series of asanas. Mind and body connection is the main goal when practising all forms of Yoga. Slow Flow is a wonderful practice in discovering one’s personal borders and learning how to move past those.
Rest assured, Slow Flow yoga is not just for beginners. All levels of Yoga practitioners can find their personal challenges, as they slowly and mindfully move through a series of asanas. The pace may be slower, but challenges will be present with a range of difficulties to work through.
Even the most advanced yoga practitioner has much to learn within the reflective pace of Slow Flow.
This discipline allows a person to become familiar with his/her body, create a reflective moment, and create the time to go inward. Slow Flow is a therapeutic dance of moving meditation.
