Kripalu yoga is a mindful yoga practice linking breath awareness with movement and meditation. Kripalu yoga strengthens and stretches the body. Students are guided to find their own level of practice by looking inward and listening to their body. Gentle postures and flow enhance body/mind/spirit awareness and can lead to increased energy,
healing and self growth.
Yoga has transformed me in so many ways, providing healing to me physically, emotionally and spiritually. From gratitude and passion I would like to make yoga accessible to all, to those who don't think they can do it. Everyone can do yoga. And to long-time practitioners of yoga I invite you to go deeper and to use yoga as a vehicle for continuing personal transformation.
