Yoga Class Descriptions
Kripalu Yoga is generally a gentle hatha yoga practice with a compassionate approach and emphasis on meditation, physical healing and spiritual transformation that overflows from the yoga mat into daily life. Students are taught to observe their body and thoughts without judging and to accept and love themselves as they are. Each student learns to find his or her own level of practice on a given day by looking inward.
The Kripalu Yoga classes are defined as GENTLE, MODERATE, or POWER, referring to the intensity of practice; however, because our needs vary from day to day and over time, students are encouraged to tune in to their bodies and practice at an intensity that feels right in the present moment. Every class is composed of centering, pranayama (breathing practices), asanas (postures), meditation, and deep relaxation to revitalize and rejuvenate all major systems of the body.
Kundalini Yoga is called the Yoga of Awareness. It combines movement, breath, and chanting to awaken the spirit, energize the body and relax the mind. Its focus is on self awareness and delivering an experience of higher consciousness.
