What is Kripalu Yoga?
“Kripalu yoga is a comprehensive, disciplined approach to self-study that cultivates health, facilitates psychological growth, and transforms one’s sense of self. Kripalu yoga arises from thousands of years of study and practice in fostering spiritual connection to all life and an awakening to the authentic self. It focuses on getting in touch with one’s own innate wisdom and happiness through cultivating nonjudgemental awareness. Teachers guide students through a practice of asana (which could be gentle, moderate, or vigorous), pranayama, and meditation, but neither posture sequences nor instructions are standardized. What distinguishes a Kripalu Yoga class is an emphasis on bringing awareness to the physical sensations, emotions, and thoughts that arise throughout the practice. The way we act and react on the mat becomes a microcosm for the way we act and react in daily life, leading to greater authenticity, equanimity, and happiness”. ~Kripalu Winter catalog 2012

Withstand the Pressure of Time: A Kundalini Experience
Saturday March 10th at 1:00pm
With Winter finally coming to an end and Spring on it’s way our nervous systems deserve a healthy tune up. The pressure of family, friends, time & technology can weigh very heavy on us and there’s no time like now to break through the weight of unnecessary stress.
What 3HO says about this kriya (yogic set): "When life gets challenging, you might find yourself in a crumpled heap on the floor. On the other hand, you can meet the challenge with calm creative solutions. This Kundalini Yoga kriya is designed to strengthen the nervous system so you can handle the pressure and stress of life just that way: calmly and creatively. It’s a lively workout and leaves you feeling relaxed and renewed."
What to expect: In this practice we use many techniques to break through to the human psyche: asana (posture), pranayama (breath work), mantra (sacred sound current -non denominational of course) & a varity of meditations techniques. Come open by dropping any expectations and give yourself the space needed to have a direct experience that will be unique to you. Kundalini is truly ALL in the experience. It is the gift of this personal experience that I offer you!
Added bonus you'll enjoy an extended savasana accompanied by the many healing effects of the gong.
Traditional Kundalini apparel (all white with head covering) welcomed, but not required.
$25 per Yogi with pre-registration
$30 at the door.

Restorative Yoga with Molly
Saturday March 24th from 3-5pm
Restorative yoga is a healing practice of slowing down and moving into yoga postures with the support of props such as blankets, blocks, and bolsters. Restorative yoga activates the parasympathetic nervous system to promote deep rest and healing. The class will feel nurturing, relaxing, and regenerating. This type of yoga promotes a centering of your breath and body - aligning the physical, breath and mental bodies by practicing stillness or gentle movement for extended periods of time. The props assist in helping you to hold poses longer. We recommend this class for anyone in need of rest, healing, relaxation, and de-stressing; no experience necessary. Class size limited, so save your spot in advance.
This event is a 2 hour class - $25 per person if pre-paid; $30 at the door.
Register by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org.

On-going Programs at Awakening Grace
In addition, all yoga classes offered include an element of mindfulness meditation at the beginning and end of class. Why meditation? Research is demonstrating the many positive affects of regular meditation. From anxiety and depression, to heart disease and hypertension, meditation is a benefit to adults and children alike. It will likely improve your concentration, reduce your blood pressure, and slow down the aging process of your brain.
