The intention of a Kripalu Yoga class is to help students stretch, strengthen, and recharge their bodies while they learn to develop compassionate self-awareness. What makes a Kripalu yoga class different from other yoga classes is an internal, meditative focus that promotes the union of the body, mind, and spirit, and results in a profound sense of wellbeing.

A complete Kripalu yoga class includes:

  • Centering – the practice of present moment awareness
  • Yogic breathing techniques
  • Warm-up exercises taught with attention to details of alignment and balance
  • Coordination of breath and movement – meditation in motion
  • Relaxation period at the end of practice

This class includes breath work, a variety of warm-up exercises, and a broader experience of classic yoga postures. Exploration of practice may include vinyasa, or the sequencing of postures in a flowing style that provides a good workout and helps students feel re-energized.

 

Restorative Yoga

A calming practice that emphasizes breathing exercises and soothing, supported postures, restorative yoga promotes total relaxation. The use of props such as pillows, blankets, and bolsters encourages students to relax their muscles and their minds, experience the mind-body connection, and enjoy an amazingly rejuvenating experience.

“​As a Personal Trainer and Health Coach, I am well aware of the affects of accumulated stress in the body, including sleep deprivation which only worsens the harmful affects.​ ​On the evenings I am privileged to attend Carol’s yoga class I always enjoy a wonderful night’s rest . Additionally the class helps safely stretch out my tight running muscles and improves not only my running stride, but I seem to move all parts of my body more fluidly. I have absolute confidence in Carol’s ability to cue correct forms, and know she always has an eye out for any modification she might need to offer. Carol’s beauty radiates from within to warm everyone she meets and it is a joy to know her.​”
