Kripalu yoga is a mindful and slow style of Asana practice (yoga poses). Classes begin with fluid warm-ups and centered breathing followed by postures, modified for the students’ individual needs. We build strength and focus by holding the poses and deepening the breath. The 90 minute class format will finish with 20 minutes of guided Mindfulness Meditation.
The benefits of yoga include relaxation, improved body consciousness, balance, flexibility, strength, compassion and insight.
