Taoflow Yoga is a unique fusion of yoga and qigong (chi gong) with a strong emphasis in inner energy cultivation, self-healing and meditative breathing. The practice utilizes natural alignment, fluid movement and stabilizing postures to rejuvenate the internal organs, nourish the joints, tendons and ligaments, and increase overall vitality. You’ll be amazed at how good you feel!
Odissi is a form of Classical Indian Dance characterized by the ecstatic expression of grace and power. The dance unifies feminine and masculine energies through fluid movement and rhythmic footwork. Odissi is both traditional and devotional in its essence, drawing upon rich influences such as acrobatics, yoga, martial arts, classical dance, and temple dances of East India.
No previous training or experience required. Students of all levels of physical fitness are welcome.
