Joanie Flavin

Joanie has been teaching yoga for 15 years, 10 of those as a full time career. She brings to her students the experience and growth through yoga that has provided her with great balance and understanding of our human experience. With yoga presented therapeutically to enhance movement and ease in the body, and breath work to link the mind and body, she gives every student the tools for taking their practice into their lives off the mat. Joanie’s teaching influences include Ana Forrest, Tias Little, Johnny Kest and Theresa Murphy. Through their great guidance and gifts she found her personal approach to teaching. Her style is an intelligent Vinyasa offering a comfortable environment of non-judgment and support to dive deep into each individuals needs, both physically and emotionally. Joanie encourages finding your inner grace by opening the body with total integration of movement.


Joanie Flavin instructs the following:
  • Core Flow
  •  
    This is one of our Flow classes.
     
    Core Flow classes teach students to move from their center during strengthening Vinyasa sequences. Emphasis is placed on how awareness of the body’s power center impacts and sustains every pose. Cultivation of the core enhances balance, embodiment, confidence and grace.

  • Heated Immersion Flow

  • This is one of our Flow classes.
     
    In this Vinyasa-style class, students explore their personal and physical edge—as well as self-awareness and intention—by cultivating core stability through complex poses (such as inversions and balancing postures) in sequences that invite precision and mindfulness. Yogis stretch and strengthen muscles while energizing the body and stimulating the mind.
     
    This class is done in a heated room. The heat encourages greater flexibility and detoxification. Yoga experience is necessary and students are asked to bring a towel, mat and water.
