  • Hip-Hop Yoga Flow
  • HHYF is our newest addition to SDYBF where hip hop meets Vinyasa.  Vinyasa is mindful movement and in HHYF we add louder music with beats to enhance the experience and get lost in the music.  We flow through our movements with intention, moving in and out of postures together that will open, stretch and restore your body from the inside-out. Each class will help link breath and movement, deepen the connection of mind and body, and bring a greater consciousness to the body and soul. We ask that you come with an open mind, and a rhythmic beat - the music is loud & hard. Come get your thug on.
