“I had no idea Affirmation Flow Yoga would be so amazing and so in line with the message of Agape. I loved it!” ~ Mecca Amuzar, Movement of Agape
Affirmation Flow Yoga is a Power/Vinyasa Flow Yoga class infused with positive affirmation statements. Allyn focuses on proper alignment, visualizations, pranayama (breath work), strengthening and balance sequences. Once students have entered a meditative state, thanks to the focus on deep, steady, breath, the use of positive intention or affirmation statements lifts the spirit and actually builds new neuropathways in the brain. As human beings have anywhere from 40-80 thousand thoughts every single day, most of which are unconscious, many of which are repetative, habitual negative thoughts, the introduction of positive affirmations while in a meditative and receptive state of mind is such a powerful thing.

Allyn Cioban has been passionate about health and fitness for as long as she can remember. She was a competitive gymnast and diver before she began her sixteen-year-long career as a fitness and group exercise instructor. Allyn took her first yoga classes in her late twenties from Shiva Rae and Seane Corn at Yoga Works, and immediately she felt a connection to the practice. She then began producing commercials and her yoga practice fell to the wayside. In 2001, September 11th shook Allyn to the core, and she immediately shifted her focus in life. She used her producing skills to raise funds for a nonprofit organization, Cancer Support Community. It is there that she was reminded about the mind body connection and of her passion for health and wellbeing. Allyn found her yoga practice again in 2005 when she began taking classes with Bryan Kest, Jerome Mercier and Rudy Mettia at Power Yoga, where you will often see her today! She completed her 200-hour Teacher Training with Tamal Dodge at The Yoga Collective, and is a registered vinyasa flow yoga teacher with Yoga Alliance.
Allyn has always been an avid believer in the power of positive affirmations and enjoyed repeating them to herself during her yoga practice. Inspired to share that powerful combination with her students, Allyn created Affirmation Flow™ yoga which has helped her overcome depression and hopelessness after 9/11; helped quiet her mind of habitual negative thoughts she had much of her life; helped improve her self esteem and body image; allowed her the awareness to deliberately choose empowering thoughts; helped her create a meaningful, personal spiritual practice; produced a sense of balance and wellbeing in her life; and strengthened and toned her body. Affirmation Flow™ integrates power/vinyasa flow yoga (breath linked to movement) with the application of precise alignment, visualizations, meditations, intentions and positive affirmations to create a meditative and healing flow. It is challenging enough for experienced practitioners, yet simple enough and totally approachable for newer yogis.
