Hatha Flow, every Tuesday at 5:30 PM inside the Hahn Horticulture Pavilion. 75 minutes. Free parking after 5:00 p.m. Practice is led by the Blacksburg Yoga Collective and held indoors with a beautiful view of the gardens!
These classes are characterized by a slower yoga practice with fewer poses that are held for a longer duration. We focus on stretching the larger muscle groups by building heat through flow, and then holding hip openers, shoulder and chest openers, forward folds, as well as other poses in effort to release stress in the body and mind. Extra mats and props are available for you to borrow.
