Basics Power Flow
Why Basics Power Flow? Basics Power and our Practice with Purpose classes are shown throughout our schedule as Basics Power Flow classes. These 60 or 75 minute, slow and modified classes offer students a power class experience moving at a deliberately slower pace. This class is recommended for any beginner student at Big Fish. This is where you will move with modifications and gain an understanding of asana and breath while creating strength, flexibility, focus, and new body awareness.
Choosing to modify and intentionally move slower offers you space to investigate, learn and discover the impact of movement with purposeful breath. Physical work will be experienced and your body will warm from the inside out. Our classrooms are heated to warm up the muscles, making your body stretch more easily. This can prevent injuries and creates sweat which benefits the body in removing toxins.
Warm Room. Beginner. All Levels.
Gentle Deep Stretch
Why Gentle Deep Stretch? These classes target the connective tissues of the body and the fascia that covers the body. Mainly done on the floor, these classes are very different than our power classes. You'll relax in the posture and soften muscles. You'll work to access the deeper tissues such as the connective tissue and fascia; many of the postures focus on areas that encompass a joint (hips, sacrum, spine).
As we age, flexibility in the joints decreases and this is a great way to maintain flexibility - something that most of us don't seem to be too concerned about until we notice it is gone. 60 and 75 minute, slow, deep, long holding stretch classes are necessary for deep muscle release and recovery in all areas of the body. You will leave these classes looser and lighter.
The class is led in a 78-degree heated room to keep the body warm but not overheated. This class is a perfect space to practice patience, slow movement and deep breathing. Warm Room, Beginner, All Levels.
