BODYFLOW™ is the Yoga, Tai Chi and Pilates workout that builds flexibility and strength, leaving you feeling centered and calm. Controlled breathing, concentration and a carefully structured series of stretches, moves and poses create a holistic workout that brings the body into a state of harmony and balance.
Your BODYFLOW™ instructor will take you through the moves and show you options to suit your fitness level in this 55 minute workout. Each class follows a set of sequence of exercise disciplines and is made up of 45 minutes of simple yet challenging exercises followed by 10 minutes of relaxation and meditation.

What do I need to bring?
Comfortable workout clothes – no shoes. This class is done in bare feet because you need to feel full contact with the floor for the balancing and postural work.
How often should I do BODYFLOW™?
You’ll feel real benefits from coming to class just once a week, but coming three times a week is ideal.
When will I notice results?
It usually takes about three classes to understand the feel and structure of the class and moves. You may experience some mild muscle soreness at first, but this will quickly pass and be followed by noticeable strength and flexibility gains and postural improvement. From the very first class, you will start to experience the stress-reducing and spiritually renewing benefits of BODYFLOW™.
