"Marie-Aude's verbal cues and instructions during class are excellent for proper alignment, and she focuses on "being" in the pose rather than "doing" the pose. She encourages us to try an asana, even if we think we can't do it, as a means for personal and physical growth. I have been very pleased with her style and classes."
Robin A. Tijeras, NM
"Marie-Aude has me working at the peak of my abilities. I can advance at my pace without expectations or competition. Marie-Aude reminds me to concentrate on pranayama and asana instead of athleticism and accomplishment."
Mike V. Cedar Crest, NM

"So, I attended one of your classes a couple of months ago while on an extended road trip across the desert southwest. While that trip has ended, I've continued to venture out on many smaller excursions and on almost every one I've sought out new yoga studios and practices. I have to say that of all the yoga I've practiced in the last few months your class has made the most enduring positive and lasting impression and I just wanted to thank you and tell you to keep up the good work! Next time I'm climbing in New Mexico I'll be sure to drop in."

"Placing with Intention"
Vinyasa Yoga Flow is the practice of "placing with intention"
Placing your attention on what you do, placing your gaze on one spot as you move, and carefully placing your body into each poses is the emphasis.
Ujjayi breathing practiced correctly promotes calming of the nervous system, automatic relaxation in mind, releasing of anxiety, promoting self confidence, purity of thoughts, and helping detaching from the burdens we each carry in our lives.
Vinyasa Flow Yoga is a different form of Hatha Yoga and is a complete workout
As you move smoothly through each yoga poses linking your breath to movement, Vinyasa Yoga Flow creates a dynamic workout, increasing heat in the body, promoting detoxification, boosting your immune functions while clearing out the lymphatic system and helping removing toxic waste of the body.
Expect to sweat, expect to get rid of your chronic pains, joint pain, and as your body ac-customize itself to this practice expect an increase in energy, developing a strong, agile yet flexible body reflecting your own mind's new condition and an upsurge of creativity in everything you do.
_"I couldn't make it to class last night... Looking forward to next time and thankful for the new-found health and well being I am feeling from Yoga. Thank you, Marie-Aude for guiding me along and helping me grow stronger! "
