I am excited to announce that I will be teaching my Slow Flow Restorative (SLR) classes regularly! Slow Flow Restorative is the perfect blend of vinyasa and stillness. I will guide you through this 75-minute experience that includes a slower vinyasa sequence followed by gentle restorative poses.

You will use props to help the mind and body feel totally supported and relaxed.
Starting in October, I will be teaching SLR every Thursday night at Powerflow Yoga Wayne (7:30-8:45pm) AND the first Friday of each month at Powerflow Yoga Clifton (8:00-9:15pm). These classes are not heated, and are open to all levels.

Sometimes, we can't always make it to the yoga studio for a number of reasons. We overslept, the times are conflicting, etc. Sometimes, the idea of practicing in the comfort of our own is super appealing. But where do we start? What do we do? How do we get our practice in without the guidance of a teacher?
Join Loretta for a step-by-step guide on how to create your own home yoga practice. Learning to practice at home under your own guidance is an essential part of understanding yoga, but more importantly yourself. She will offer a unique list of sequencing ideas and options for learning to practice at home... ranging from a simple meditation practice to a full-blown vinyasa flow.
Slow Flow is a beautiful blend of vinyasa and stillness. It explores asana through flowing movement and breath, while slowing things down so each pose and transition can be truly felt and absorbed. Loretta will guide you through a 90 minute slow flow experience, including vinyasa yoga, followed by a juicy and super gentle sequence of restorative poses. Restorative poses involve the use of props to help the body feel totally supported and relaxed. This class is not heated, and is open to all levels.
Join Kimie Mittman and Loretta Turner for a breakdown of some of yoga's most popular and challenging arm balances. They will cover poses for beginners and more seasoned practitioners.
