Lululemon Detroit generously opened their doors to our Yoga Family for The
Wine Down, a fundraiser for Yoganic Flow.
Yoganic Flow teachers will be sharing the practice of yoga in two neighborhood parks on basketball courts revitalized & managed by the Detroit Pistons! On Thursday, August 8, 2019 the Yoganic Flow team will offer FREE YOGA at Rouge North and Bennett Parks Pistons basketball courts. Participants will receive a FREE Pistons YOGA MAT!
Detroiter Kerrie Trahan began practicing yoga over 12 years ago, when she first participated in a class at the Boll Family YMCA, but it wasn’t until she moved to South Korea that yoga began to wind its way into her life in a much deeper way.
After discovering the practice helped her overcome depression and grief, she began working toward becoming a registered yoga teacher. That study has taken her to Thailand and India, where she amassed enough knowledge to earn a RYT-300 certificate. She brought that knowledge home to Detroit and began sharing it with her family and friends. Out of that was born Yoganic Flow, a community-based yet transient organization that holds pop up classes around the city.

With a plethora of other health benefits, here are just 3 ways yoga can give your body a healthy, spring cleaning this season.
1. Twisting Poses: Digestion – Gentle pressure applied to the abdominal area stimulates the digestive organs which encourages waste removal. Compression postures like twisting and hugging are the most effective for this. Try out these 3 postures for a healthy, digestive cleanse:
2. Chest Openers: Respiratory – Lung expansion encourages deep breathing which stimulates the elimination of carbon dioxide and lactic acid. Chest opening postures are most effective for expanding the lungs. Try these 3 chest openers for respiratory cleansing and strengthening:
