New AromaFlow class

On Thursdays from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m., Aislinn Walton will lead AromaFlow, a new class added to the Dogma Athletica yoga schedule. This all-levels class combines vinyasa yoga with the therapeutic benefits of pure-grade essential oils. Topical application of oils is a personal choice.

Walton teaches a variety of class types that are physically challenging for those who request rigor, yet she also caters to meditation and restorative classes with a focus on easing stress and tension.

“Each of Aislinn’s classes are rich with intention and purpose, while combining elements of meditation, breath and yoga postures,” Winters said. “Aislinn’s teaching style is unique, patient and therapeutic, due to the vast array of styles she has learned from her personal teachers, and is also influenced by her travels through Southeast Asia and time spent living and teaching in Panama and Costa Rica.”
