Welcome to Kripalu Yoga!
In Kripalu Yoga, you learn many of the same postures as in other yoga classes, the
difference is our emphasis on not only how you practice, but also what you bring with you off the mat and into the life you live. It is a practice that revitalizes the body, calms the mind and spirit into a state of harmony and balance. We focus on sensations that arise as you breathe and move bridges the chasm separating the body & mind, allowing you to become fully present in your body. A series of postures stretches and strengthens the entire body, releasing the chronic tension that so often dulls our vitality. We end each practice with a deep relaxation, energy naturally flows to the areas of your body most in need of rejuvenation and healing. You leave feeling balanced, energized to resume your life, and naturally motivated to sustain your practice.!
Riding the wave of your moment~to ~moment experience, you release trapped emotion by choosing to feel it fully. Witnessing the activity of the mind you learn how to recognize unproductive thinking and let it go!!
Anyone can do Kripalu Yoga~ it is an experiential model of education that empowers the learner to discover what is true based on his or her own direct experience.
