To receive the latest updates:

“I have loved going to your yoga classes, especially the Yin and Restorative Yoga, as I could always be guaranteed a superb night’s sleep after. Often times I would go to yoga class feeling achy, but the stretching and balancing would leave me feeling so good afterwards!

Relaxation pose at the beginning of each class with positive affirmations and just being in the moment with the breath has been very beneficial for me. My body craves yoga if I miss even just a week of classes!
Thank you Brigitte!”

Yoga instructor

Creative Flow owner Brigitte Rivers (was Marsden) believes in living your yoga. Practising mindful yoga has brought her many health and wellness benefits, including

  • reduced stress levels
  • enhanced lung capacity
  • increased range of motion.

Developing greater awareness of body, mind and breath through yoga helps bring balance, calm and focus to all areas of our lives, as we bring the ancient wisdom of yoga into today’s often stress-filled world.

Her influences include Jon Kabat-Zinn, creator of the Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Program, Scott Anderson’s Alignment Yoga and Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras.

Brigitte Rivers is an Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher (E-RYT200) and an Advanced Teacher of Therapeutic Yoga (ATTY). She is now an Advanced Reiki practitioner, and combines this gentle healing modality with Yoga to bring balance and wellness to all levels of being. With over 700 hours of training, including Hatha Vinyasa and Yin Yoga, Integrative Yoga Therapy, Trauma-informed Yoga & Mindfulness, Chair Yoga and Divine Sleep® Yoga Nidra, Creative Flow Yoga is the choice for many people facing health and mobility challenges, or recovering from accidents.
