Marianne Linn will guide you through a carefully designed sequence of yoga postures, at a measured pace and with fluid transitions, linking intentional breath with conscious movement. Posture by posture, breath by breath, moment by moment - you will be encouraged to build safe body alignment, to cultivate greater sensitivity to body sensations, and to use the breath to stay present and develop a deeper focus and increased self awareness.
Mindful Flow Yoga is a meditation in motion - a practice of discovery by being present with what unfolds in the present moment. Turning within we can clearly see and explore our conditioned and habitual tendencies, held within body, breath and mind.
Marianne creates a new sequence each month, designed to build fluid transitioning between asanas, to develop greater breath capacity and to build a balance of effort and ease, transforming once-difficult postures into a fluid and continuous dance.
Such a practice cultivates mindfulness with an open awareness and responsive quality available at any given moment. With clear intention we are choosing our attitude for the practice, one breath at a time. By choosing a positive mindset we give the mind a positive direction along the path. Practicing in a state of deep focus and awareness, we will begin to experience and rest more fully in a deeper stillness.
All sincere students are welcome. Modifications and variations are given to accommodate students of all levels.

The goal of Pilates is overall body fitness, elongated supple muscles, and balance between body and mind, with all the parts of a person working as a whole.

The Pilates-based core work combined with gentle twists and spirals encourages greater flexibility in the spine and creates a healthy fascia system with movements that are creative to challenge the mind and body.
