Sadhana

Slow Flow

This practice focuses on asanas (postures) to activate as well as to relax the muscles in our body. Poses are generally held for 6-7 breathes to allow our muscles to either achieve a more relaxed state or to build strength and stability. The longer asanas can also help one to relax the mind. Practice ends with a longer Savasana, often regarded as the most important pose in yoga.
