Class and Workshop Descriptions

Introduction to Kripalu Yoga

The practice of Kripalu Yoga, which uses the body as a vehicle for accessing Spirit, can have profound effects on the mind, emotions, and physical body. In this experiential workshop, we’ll explore the three stages of Kripalu Yoga: hatha yoga poses with a focus on alignment and coordination of body and breath; longer meditative holding of postures; and “meditation in motion. ” As we allow sensations, thoughts, and emotions to be safely experienced with compassion and tenderness, we’ll dissolve blocks and release healing life-force energy; establish an intimate and nurturing relationship with our bodies; and tap into our own inner knowing. Our bodies then become the temple in which we invoke the presence of the Divine. This workshop is suitable for both new and experienced students.
