“What you seek, is also seeking you.” – Rumi

Kripalu Yoga

Kripalu yoga is a practical, accessible, and contemporary approach to yoga.  This practice cultivates mindfulness to promote inner peace, asana postures to promote strength and flexibility, development of compassionate self-awareness to promote healing and transformation, and taking the practice of yoga off the mat and into daily life.

This style of class is especially friendly for those interested in exploring the foundations of yoga, or those wishing to enjoy a more gentle and meditative practice.  We will focus on movements to warm up and create spaciousness in the body, using breath and awareness to calm the mind and nervous system, and encouraging a connection with the deeper self through inquiry into the inner landscape of yoga.
