Power Flow Yoga
Tuesday & Thursdays, 8:30-9:30AM
Basement of Immaculate Conception Church, 605 Luzerne Ave, West Pittston
This class is based on the vinyasa style of yoga, which is a flowing, dynamic practice that connects movement and breath. By building a strong foundation in classical yoga postures, proper breathing and alignment, you will increase your strength, flexibility, range of motion and balance. In addition, you will leave the class feeling more focused and relaxed. To get the most power we can out of the hour, we’ll also use light weights to build additional strength. Beginners are welcome but should expect a workout!
