About Flow & Hold Yoga

Flow & Hold® Yoga is a style of yoga developed by Courtney to help students achieve maximum benefit from their practice. She found that most yoga classes are either dedicated to keeping the body moving at a quicker pace, such as vinyasa or flow, or they’re very slow and still, such as yin or alignment-based traditions. She chose the middle path, incorporating pieces of both styles, so students can increase circulation and warmth in the body before allowing some time to refine their practice, focusing on holding asanas for a longer period, and allowing the time to really focus on what’s happening in the body and mind.

Flow & Hold employs many contrasts to develop a deeper awareness of the body and mind. In this yoga practice you’ll move between flowing, upbeat sequences and stillness, you’ll experience tension and relaxation, a variety of breathing patterns, and you will develop strength and resilience while also allowing time to drop into a meditative state. The goal is to provide a well-rounded practice that delivers not only the benefits of an asana practice, but also develops a deeper connection to your inner-wisdom and inner-guide.
