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

We welcome you to come and visit us.

Mindfulness and Nature Workshop at Audubon Center


Saturday October 14th from 2-4pm, Massabesic Center

Explore the magic of mindfulness! Mindfulness practices contribute to a sense of overall well-being. This workshop will invite awareness of the body and breath to connect more deeply with your inner calm, vitality, and nature. We will also learn techniques for opening our senses to the natural world around us and find what sights, sounds, and smells we can observe mindfully.
Join local Yoginis Angie Krysiak and Molly Schlangen for this workshop to support your local Audubon Society. Please register at: http://www.nhaudubon.org/calendar/mindfulness-and-nature-observation-workshop/

On-going Programs at Awakening Grace

Meditation




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. For more information, see the following links: Web MD on meditation and Forbes on the science of meditation.

What Our Clients Say…
"I thought of a good analogy with which to describe your yoga class to my friend and came up with a pretty accurate one. Your class can be compared with a lovely meal: the intro and warm up is the salad; the class is the main course; and the shivasana is, of course, the desert. And the subtle thought you wove into today's class? That is a fine wine well paired with the rest of the meal". ~Boyd C.
