Integral Yoga is the ideal 60 minute yoga class, that incorporates everything a yogi would need to start their day from a centered and balanced place. 10 minutes of breathwork + 30 minutes of vinyasa flow + 10 minutes of shavasana + 10 minutes of seated guided meditation. So often we go into yoga class to achieve an outward aesthetic appeal, however, many of us forget that the point of yoga was to prepare the body for meditation. With this class our goal is to prepare the body for a deep meditation by using ancient body movements and breathing exercises passed down by the great masters.
