Zen Yoga classes focus on alignment, energy flow, and the Buddhist practice of mindfulness. Routines flow from one pose to the next, and postures are practiced while standing, sitting, or lying down. Students are encouraged to go at their own pace, making Zen Yoga suitable for both beginners and advanced students. Alignment is emphasized as a means of fostering a smooth, powerful energy flow within the body, while mindfulness helps to unlock physical tension and emotional blockages.
