Citizen On-Demand is the digital movement + well-being version of our Metro Detroit studios. Our 300+ yoga, philosophy, mental health, meditation and livestream classes, allow students to improve their overall well-being on their own time, wherever they are.
Slow Burn dispels the myth that slower is easier. Expect powerful standing poses woven together with intentional transitions in this fully guided yoga experience. Whereas the pace of Vinyasa makes it physically demanding, Slow Burn offers a mental challenge as you work to stay present with your breath during the longer holds. Meet your edge, and then unwind through deep stretches, twists, and hip openers to round out this balanced practice.
Each niyama concerns the spiritual observances to experience self-harmony. Dayle’s 30-minute Slow Burn focuses on Svadhyaya, which translates to self-study or the concept of observing your thoughts and emotions.
