What to expect in Yonnus’ classes:
Yonnus’ classes incorporate a playfulness, joy and celebration of the spirit.
Mixed Level Vinyasa
Intention of movement, strength-building and breathe awareness lends the class to a sometimes slower more mindful paced vinyasa. We begin with a series of poses to warm the muscles of the body, then begin to build heat through a creative and inspiring vinyasa flow. Towards the end of class we slow down again, sealing our practice with deep stretches to ease us back into the gentle stillness of our body. Classes are always fun, energizing and heart-centered.
Let Go & Flow
This class has a strong focus on fluidity of movement with creative and sometimes challenging transitions. In today’s day and age, we are responsible for so much that the mind has little time to just relax. Let Go & Flow encourages us to embrace just letting go, finding your flow and moving with bliss. Less awareness is paid to alignment so we recommend at least level 2 experience in your practice.
