What is Kripalu Yoga?<

Kripalu Yoga is a unique way to integrate body, mind and spirit through opening to the wisdom of your body. Throughout Kripalu's three-stage approach, you are guided to move at your own pace, honoring your body's needs in each moment. Kripalu Yoga develops the body, mind and spirit in a compassionate and non-judgmental way. You leave the class feeling uplifted and centered.

Stage 1 - Willful Practice (Body and Breath Awareness)

Begins with an experiential approach to understanding the details of alignment and the coordination of breath while moving into and out of postures.

Stage 2 - Holding the Posture (Inner Focus and Concentration)

Guides you to focus your attention on inner sensations, thoughts and emotions. You learn to hold postures for longer periods of time while cultivating compassion and awareness.

Stage 3 - Meditation in Motion (Absorption)

A unique and personal expression of Kripalu Yoga. You practice the art of moving in response to your body's wisdom, with postures flowing from one into the next. This experience is often described as a state of prayer expressed in movement. 

"Kripalu Yoga gave me what I came for - a deepening of my practice, a contact with my soul, and a connection with the greater web of life."

"I found Kripalu Yoga to be very real and practical. It focuses on the important things:  breathing, movement, balancing flexibility with strength and developing clear awareness of what's going on within and around you."
