Come renew, restore and refresh! Blithewold and Bristol Yoga Studio invite you to enjoy a connection to nature, through our beautiful landscape, and the peacefulness of Yoga outdoors. The Yoga asana (postures) offered is appropriate for all experience levels— from newcomers who can’t touch their toes to those seeking to continue their practice while basking in a breathtaking new atmosphere. The instructor will introduce students to a variety of Vinyasa flow. Classes will be held in Blithewold’s beautiful gardens, overlooking the Great Lawn and Narragansett Bay. Each class includes different yoga poses, attention to alignment, breath-work, and flow. The class finishes with building core strength and relaxation. You are left feeling your best! We encourage you to bring a picnic lunch and then take a refreshing walk through the grounds after class as a guest of Blithewold.

Charlotte Love Yogi
Charlotte completed her 500hr Shiva Rea Prana Flow® Teacher Training in March
2014 and is RYT 200hr certified with Yoga Alliance.
What is Prana Flow? "Prana Flow is an energetic, creative, full-‐spectrum approach to
embodying the flow of yoga cultivated by Shiva Rea and the Global Vinyasa
Collective of Teachers. Students of all levels are empowered to experience prana -‐ the universal
source of breath, life-‐energy and conscious intelligence -‐ as the navigating source of yoga
practice and vital living. Practitioners learn classical and innovative approaches to vinyasa yoga
and the state of flow drawn from Krishnamacharya's teachings, Tantra, Ayurveda, Bhakti, Somatics
and Shiva's teaching experience from the last fifteen years."
excerpted from www.shivarea.com
As a student, Charlotte embodies the energetic fluidity of Prana Flow in her personal
practice with a deeper level of release, nourishment, joy and connection to self.
As a teacher she strives to honor each student process. Recognizing that individually we are all at
different stages in our practice and guides the classroom community to reach their peak personal
expression by offering foundational cues through vinyasa krama. Classes combine music, breath
awareness and vinyasa, offering the students
time to ground, energize, balance and restore.

With Autumn just around the bend, there will be many beautiful sights and sounds. The rainbow color change of the leaves. The crunch of fallen foliage under one’s foot. But right now, I’m leaning into this last week of Summer with every scent I can linger on in the gardens and grounds. The phrase “Stop and […]
