Here is a link to Pocketsuite to sign up for class – Reserve Class
For starters, Lionflow Yoga Studio is nolonger using the Mindbody app for class reservations. We are now using Pocketsuite . Download the app, then find Lionflow Yoga Studio & go through the motions to reserve a class just to figure out the process. The first time through the app will have you put in your contact info & will then send you a confirmation # to use to complete signing up for class. I believe it is only that complicated the first time.
Below is the new Lionflow Yoga Studio schedule. It is the most minimal schedule I may have ever posted. To be frank about why, my son is now homeschooling full time. Some time sacrifices had to made. With this new schedule though, will come special events & workshops I have not had time for of late. Many new things are coming with this transition, and it has been & will continue to be my honor to share Lionflow Yoga with you. Thank you for supporting my dream & passion, no matter how often you have been to class.

While the studio is in this transitional period with classes in my home , where Lionflow Yoga began a decade ago , I’m going to update … everything . It’s a Lionflow Spring cleaning !
One of the changes will be the Lionflow class names . In 2010 right before my son was born , I moved the studio out of the house for the first time , and with this move came the first class schedule with names for the different class levels . Before that time I only taught Lionflow as private lessons , and before the style was named Lionflow Yoga , it was called my private practice . Since that time new classes have been developed, and the old class names made less sense .
So the new class names for the core Lionflow Classes will be ; Intro Form , Intermediate Form , Advanced Form, and Master Form . These are the same classes you are familiar with just with new names that come with renewed pupose . I will describe how the old class names compare to the new ones , and will talk about how we will use the new set up to teach you more about details , and where sequence lead .
Each class form level has a short form & a long form . The teacher will draw from each to accommodate the students particular needs & skills . With this format students will get to see where sequence lead , learn more poses , and have more fun/challenge in each class . The schedule will not differentiate between short & long form , it will only list the class levels as Intro , Intermediate , Advanced , and Master Form .
One side note . If you are practicing for exercise , that is intermediate level . Beginner, or intro level is for learning how to move safely , breathe , and to learn how to interpret what you see into physical action . As well Beginner / Intro is the most useful step for recovery , gentle therapy , and for building the strength, stability, and range of motion to practice longer classes & more postures safely. Point being if you are a regular practicioner , or an athlete with no serious injuries looking for a yoga class , you may want to start with the Intermediate Form for a longer , more challenging class . Also , as any student learns to move safely , and breathe with control, they should feel more comfortable taking any level of class . Because with a healthy knowledge of how to practice, “advanced” levels of class only mean the opportunity to learn more poses , and to practice a longer class . In reality , when we cannot do the final position of poses we can greatly improve our practice by working on & holding the first steps of these challenging poses . There is a misconception that yoga is not an intense work out because most aspiring students do not practice enough to learn how to practice more advanced sequence safely . Without this experience a student is locked into beginner forms of class without the access to their own potential in more advanced forms of practice.
With this new format for classes there will be more focus on teaching. Meaning that as oppose to just leading class the teacher will take time to teach lessons about more subtle details to help students get more out of class, and reach deeper into their potential. Especially in the Intro Form . In the Intro Form of class there will be a lesson within each class about breathing , leverage, and alignment to help better prepare beginners for the next levels of class . Below are the new class names compared to the old class names . You will see these adjustments on the website & schedule today.
New name / Old name
Intro Form / Gentle Basics
Intermediate Form/ Intro to Lionflow & Flow One
Advanced Form / Flow Two & Flow Three
Master Form / Master class
Hello Everyone ,
So … this old dinosaur is trying to learn some new tricks . The Lionflow Yoga Studio is now on Mind Body . What does that mean ? Well , now you can buy classes / gift certificates / & pay for workshops online , you can check in for classes online , and you could write nice things about the studio for people to read 😉 We can also easily keep track of your classes , and since we are still having class at the Spring street location during the new studio renovations , you can see if there is room in class for you , if we get everyone to start checking in prior to class . So lets give it a shot , so if your planning to come to class try going on the site to check in . Here is the link for the Lionflow Yoga Mind Body website -https://clients.mindbodyonline.com/classic/admhome?studioid=344218
Secondly , Lionflow Yoga now has a subscription website on Vimeo ! There are the options to subscribe for access to all of the videos , or to buy or rent individual videos . The site will be dedicated to helping build a safe & progressive home yoga practice . So you can write me on the site , tell me your needs/ wants & I will post a video for you that is named after you 🙂 Here is the link to the Vimeo site – https://vimeo.com/ondemand/lionflowyoga
Thirdly , Glenn became a certified Tai Chi Instructor early this month ! So soon we will have sign ups for a 6 to 8 week Tai Chi session , meeting a couple times a week . This Tai Chi style ( there are 5 main styles of Tai Chi ) was composed by Dr. Paul Lam for arthritis & fall prevention using the Sun style of Tai Chi . What does that mean ? This Tai Chi class is for all levels , and it’s therapeutic qualities are good for everyone . For yoga practicioners this Tai Chi form is good for learning to have smooth steady strength in the movements between poses , and will help soothe & strengthen the deep , hard to reach places in the joints & internal muscle structure . This means quicker recovery & reduced inflammation. All good things ! We are excited to add this to the Lionflow Yoga Schedule , and will keep you updated on class times & sign ups .
Lastly – A new facebook Lionflow Yoga page is up . On it you can check in to let your friends know they need to come practice yoga with you … and us 🙂 All of the Workshops will be posted on there as well . Here is the link – https://m.facebook.com/lionflowyoga/
That is all for now . Have a great weekend , and we look forward to practicing with you !
