MaitriFlow – A 60 – 90 minute yoga practice with fluid movement, somatic reconnection, core engagement and self massage. Cultivate loving kindness to your body. Develop a deeper connection with yourself. The beautiful vessel that carries you through this life experience, your amazing body is no longer a stranger but a loving, trusted friend. Our thoughts and experiences are reflected in every part of the human body. Through connection, encouragement and listening to our body speak we can get in touch with issues that our mind has been repressing, denying or ignoring and our body has been storing. With gentle practice the issues can be freed from our cells allowing space for harmony.
