What makes it Riverflow?
Riverflow Yoga is serious hot yoga: 26 poses (plus a few extra here and there), 105 degrees for 60, 75 or 90 minutes.
What makes Riverflow Yoga different, though, is not our heat; it's our warmth.
Welcome to Your Hot Yoga Community
Riverflow is a community studio - a warm, personal place where you get individual attention to bring out your best and take you to the next level.
A place where everybody knows your name.
Beginners, advanced yogis or somewhere in between, you'll be challenged and treated with care at Riverflow Yoga.
Come for the yoga; stay for the fun
"Hey, Julie, you got here after work!" "Welcome back, Ellen!" "How was your vacation, Zuke?" Walk in our front door and you're home.
Yes, you're here to do hot yoga.
But you're invited to stay.
Ask questions, engage in discussions, enjoy snacks, share victories and receive personal tips and encouragement from teachers and fellow students.
At Riverflow, we want to show you how hot yoga can change your life outside the studio, too. Your job. Your relationships. Your goals. This benefits of this hot yoga community never end. In fact, you're about to discover how hot yoga can transform your life. That's our goal for you at Riverflow Yoga.
Come in from the cold
Life is busy. Take a breath.
Think of Riverflow Yoga as an oasis in your busy day, a moment for yourself, a time to take care of you. Pause and breathe, just as we ask you to do between the poses. We'll guide you through the poses and explain all the good you're doing for yourself just being with us in hot yoga.
Our detailed instructions make this perfect hot yoga for beginners or advanced yogis, whichever you feel like today.
High heat + Hot yoga = sweat equity
Some like it hot. We like it hotter.
We crank up the heat to make-no-mistake-it's-hot-in-here 105 degrees, 40% humidity.
What's the method to this madness?
Sweating is a detox. Your skin is your largest organ of elimination and sweat is a way of purging. High heat also dilates your blood vessels; breathe deeply (we'll remind you) for an increased flow of richly oxygenated blood to every part of your body.
Our high heat will "melt" tight muscles, soothe your stress, and allow you to stretch more easily.
Can you "overstretch" in hot yoga? I don't know; can you over-enjoy?
You're getting warmer...
Riverflow Yoga is balancing poses, hip opening poses, and back-strengthening poses, built around a core of relaxation.
Don't know the yoga poses? You're in luck.
Put your mind on PAUSE and let your teacher be your guide. You're in good hands here.
And we like to mix it up a bit.
Our Music Hot Yoga class has no verbal instructions, just hot poses with cool musical accompaniment, from Springsteen to Soul Train. Sometimes you'll learn some new tricks: Child's Pose, Cat-Cow Stretch/Bridge Pose, Cowface (it's a pose!), Spinal Roll (sounds dangerous but it's heavenly)Boat Pose...and more.
After 40 years of yoga, I know a few more than 26 poses. And I love surprising you.
Sweat, yes. Strain, no.
Riverflow Yoga is challenging.
But easy does it: determination, yes; struggle, no.
Our instructors will stand beside you, offer guidance and encouragement...and opportunities for laughter.
We guide you to the benefits of sweat with a smile, and perhaps learning to take yourself bit more lightly.
We don't believe in pain, but we will push you to your potential. Stay focused; eyes open, explore each pose to the best of your ability and give 100% today.
What happens in Riverflow hot yoga class?
- We set you up before the pose begins. Our nuanced instructions help ease your body into the poses without a struggle.
- We time the poses from 10 seconds to one minute. Once you're properly aligned, holding the poses is a pleasure
- We encourage AHA moments. Aha, I CAN hold that pose! AHA, I can bend that way! AHA, it was my mind holding me back, not my body. We are all about the AHA.
- We take the guesswork out of hot yoga. Follow our instructions to the best of your abiilty. No modifications, no excuses.
- We welcome beginners. We encourage everyone to feel "new" to each class no matter how experienced you are. That beautiful Gumby - she's a beginner, too.
- We love Savasana (eyes open) between each pose. Freeze like a statue. No fidgeting.
- We encourage you to take a pose off/sit a pose out and choose Savasana anytime. No judgements. You'll be surprised how quickly you're ready to rejoin us in the poses again.
- We appreciate you: expect us to compliment you - on your poses, your effort and your commitment
Riverflow Yoga is the heat of the moment
