Kripalu’s approach to yoga practice is unique, integrating the rigor of traditional yoga with an emphasis on the study of consciousness, prana, and meditation in motion. Kripalu yoga empowers one to listen to the body, discovering from one’s own experience what practices support well-being and growth. This class explores yoga postures, pranayama, and meditation. Classes are dynamic and always fresh, continuously challenging the body to respond in new ways.

In this Vinyasa-style movement party, we will practice an invigorating series of asanas, or poses, that will challenge you, shift your perspective, open your heart, and prepare your body for the stillness of meditation. In other words, let’s put our bodies in motion while giving our minds a rest. All levels (including beginners!) are welcome.
