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

Black Friday Bliss: Restorative Yoga with Molly
Friday November 24th from 3-5pm – $25 per person
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! This event is a 2 hour class - $25 per person.
Register by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information about the benefits of restorative yoga, see: http://www.chopra.com/articles/10-benefits-of-restorative-yoga
