Kripalu Yoga

Kripalu Yoga is a therapeutic practice, physically, mentally and spiritually. It places equal importance on the body, mind, and spirit. It's ideal for beginners, and is accepting and adaptable to everyone, no matter your age, ability, size, or other circumstance.

For many Kripalu yoga extends into their daily lives and it can be the source of great spiritual and mental transformation as well as physical health. This is a very popular style and it's definitely something to consider as you explore yoga.

Kripalu is a gentle hatha yoga practice with a compassionate approach. It places an emphasis on meditation, physical healing, and spiritual transformation that overflows from the yoga mat into daily life. Over time, students are taught to observe their thoughts without judging and to accept and love themselves as they are.

Kripalu is gentle yoga that emphasizes moving at your own pace, self-acceptance, and adaptability. It is ideal for people facing life challenges.

In a Kripalu class each student learns to find their own level of practice on a given day by looking inward. The classes usually begin with pranayama (breath) exercises and gentle stretches followed by asana (posture) practice and ending with final relaxation.

​In classes for beginners poses are held for a short time as students begin to feel the effects of prana (life energy) in the body. More advanced classes include longer hold times and, eventually, flow.

Because of Kripalu's emphasis on adaptability and acceptance, it is a style that is welcoming to people who feel like they are outside the norm. It's also popular for those who are looking for transformation during difficult times of life or who have injuries or other physical limitations. 

Kripalu yoga is great for tapping into that inner being that is capable of anything. This idea of self-empowerment and believing in yourself and in your body is what makes Kripalu Yoga so transformative, to beginners and regular yoga practitioners alike.
