At Powerflow Yoga, we believe that yoga is practice, not perfection. Our classes are intended for all skill levels. We are here to support you throughout your yoga journey. Classes are available seven days a week at both of our Mt. Pleasant hot yoga studios. Whether you plan to join our team for one hot yoga class, or you are committed to progressing in your practice, we can’t wait to help you find your center.
Hot Power Hour is the express version of our signature yoga practice. It’s for those of you that need to come in, move around and get on with your day. You can expect to dive right into a sweaty, powerful and meditative experience. Reconnect to the rhythm of your breath to find more steadiness and ease on and off your mat. When you quiet an overactive mind, you’ll feel ready to handle whatever curveballs life throws your way.
Hot Powerflow Vinyasa is our signature, upbeat yoga practice that gets you out of your head and back into your body. You’ll work hard to link together your movements and breath while you flow through a series of traditional yoga poses. Moreover, since the best things in life don’t come easily, we heat the room to about 98 degrees. It’s a sweaty, powerful and meditative experience that will help you turn down the noise of everyday life. This open-level class is set to music. Modifications and variations will be offered.
Prana is a Sanskrit word that means life force, and ayama means extending or stretching. Thus, the word “pranayama” translates to the control of life force. It is also known as the extension of breath.This 30 minutes class will provide the techniques of various Pranayama practice, and their potential benefits. The students will be able to get acquainted with key exercises from the ancient Pranayama tradition and their relevance to wellbeing in modern times. Class is Not heated.
A chance to pause and practice mindfulness with your peers. Every week, we’ll be exploring topics related to yoga principles and considering practical ways to bring those principles off the mat and into daily life. We’ll begin with a short reading and introduction to mindfulness techniques before sitting together in 30 minutes of silent meditation, ending our time with a chance to share and discuss the week’s topic. We provide bolsters, blankets, and a limited number of chairs, but please feel free to bring a comfortable seat of your choosing.
The Warm Candlelit flow style is a dynamic combination of strength, sweat, and relaxation in an ambient setting. This accessible flow will lead you to a state of transformation – starting with a Vinyasa flow that will sculpt, tone and hone the muscles. The last half of practice will slow down your rhythm and allow you to slide into relaxation using a restorative Yin approach and ending with yoga nidra rest. The room is heated to a comfortable 85 degrees, and the ambiance of the studio is set with candles, dim lighting, and soft music. The class is open to all students; modifications and variations are offered to serve the needs of all experience levels. Get ready to take your practice seriously, but yourself lightly as you explore your edge, discover your strength, and awaken your spirit.
We created Warm Powerflow Basics because we want all students to feel safe and empowered at PFY. This class moves at a slower pace so you can learn fundamental vinyasa poses and how to link together your movements and breaths. We’ll turn the heat down a bit, so Warm Powerflow Basics is a moderate introduction to our signature Hot Powerflow Vinyasa.
Slow Flow is the perfect blend of vinyasa and stillness. You will be guided through this 75-minute experience that includes a slower vinyasa sequence followed by gentle restorative poses. A slow flow allows you to feel the poses and transitions while calming your central nervous system. Restorative poses lead you into even deeper relaxation. You will use props to help the mind and body feel totally supported and relaxed. This class is open to all levels and is warm, not hot.
Yin Yoga is the perfect complement to a more vigorous, powerful fitness routine. For those who need a mini-retreat but can’t quite get away, yin yoga helps students clear away the mental fog. You can expect fewer poses with longer holds, more floor postures, breathing techniques, and meditation. This practice is focused on releasing deeply held tension in some of the body’s tightest areas: the lower back, hips, and legs. You’ll challenge your ability to stay present and detached as the intensity of each posture continually builds. The class is open to all levels as most of the practice is done on the floor.
Family Yoga creates great opportunities for bonding time, learning together and teamwork, all in the context of safe exercise. Cassandra will lead a well-balanced and fun yoga practice for both the adult and the child in the room, exploring both the physical and the meta-physical aspects of the yogic tradition. No prior experience necessary. Classes will be non-heated to warm. Enrollment is open to adults and their children between the ages of 7-15. Cost: $20/parent + 1 child, $7/each additional child.
This class will begin with a warming and heart-opening flow (yang) practice allowing prana or energy to begin flowing in the body. The second half of the class will focus on yin poses held longer to stretch the connective tissues helping us to relax into the deepest layers of the body.
