Don’t miss Alanna Kaivalya, fresh off a month in Bali, at Flow Yoga in Washington D.C.!
Devotion in Motion | 6/18 2pm – 5pm: Bhakti Yoga is the practice of loving harder, and we experience that when our heart is open and we can express that compassion in the world. This class gives us the opportunity to raise our voice in the powerful bhakti yoga practice of chanting, and clear any resistance to compassion through a powerful vinyasa practice.
Sita, Ram, Hanuman | 6/19 1:30pm – 4:30pm: As one of yoga’s most beloved texts, the Ramayana is the epic tale, of a king, his lady and his best friend as they fight through darkness to rediscover love and light. We’ll honor the highlights of this tale and embody its lessons through specific postures and uplifting chanting.
