Vinyasa Flow Yoga. 6-7pm. Taught By: Steven Coard. Vinyasa, also called flow because of the smooth way that the poses run together, is one of the most popular contemporary styles of yoga. ... In vinyasa yoga, each movement is synchronized to a breath. The breath is given primacy, acting as an anchor as you move from one pose to the next. Vinyasa movements are smooth, and as we flow using our breath as our guide, the practice becomes almost dance-like, which explains why it is sometimes referred to as Vinyasa Flow or just Flow Yoga. Vin- yasa has both physical and mental benefits. Physically, sweat releases toxins and re-en- ergizes our bodies. Mentally, yoga can help with stress, clarity, and provides an oppor- tunity to move towards greater emotional balance. Cost: $40.00 per month due the

first class of the month or Drop in rate of $12.00 per class. Class is limited to 5 stu- dents to allow for personal attention for all students. Please call to reserve your space in the class. Location: The Center for Holis- tic Healing in High Point. For info, or to re- serve, call 336-841-4307.
