“IceFlow” puts yoga on ice, lessons slide into the 401 park ice rink


BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) – The opposite of “hot yoga”, a kind of “cold yoga”, has kicked in at the 401 Park rink and will continue every Sunday this winter.

Dubbed “IceFlow,” the program began to offer participants the opportunity to practice basic skating movements while stretching, breathing and sliding to the sound of music.

“We use our breath, connect our breath to our movements, and we inhale joy and light things that fill us and serve us. Then we breathe out whatever we don’t need to wear,” Elin said. Schran, IceFlow teacher at JoySkate Productions. According to Fenway.com, Schran has been teaching IceFlow yoga for 15 years, with a positive, non-judgmental approach aimed at making people feel welcome to skate in their comfort zone.

Schran said typical yoga poses like “down dog” or “Shavasana” were not practiced because of the ice under yoga enthusiasts.

“It’s not about jumps and twists,” said Debbie, a Needham participant, “it’s just about being here, being in this moment, enjoying the outside world and being very. here.”
