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 thousand 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.

Crystal Bowl Sound Healing

Workshop
Sunday October 16th at 4:00pmcsbowls1_dimmed
Sherryl Comeau of Energy Works Studio will provide a relaxing experience of crystal bowl vibrations. Music and sound have been proven scientifically to shift the consciousness of the brain. Crystal singing bowls are powerful tools because of the harmonics and overtones that are created. Doing sound healing therapy can stimulate trance like states of body & mind. The sounds emanating from the bowls allow your brain waves to slow down the Beta, Alpha, Theta, & Delta levels. People can often visit different places outside themselves during a sound healing session. Private tuning fork sessions are available before the sound healing by appointment.  This event is offered for $25 per person.  Please email to reserve your place.

It will likely improve your concentration, reduce your blood pressure, and slow down the aging process of your brain.

Somatics with Noreen Owens

Friday Mornings 9-10AM NOW RUNNINGnoreen
Each class will build upon the previous week. Basic movements will target stress, anxiety, and injury. Classes inherently magnify the benefits of doing somatics. Somatics is far more than an exercise class; it builds sensory self-knowledge – tools to relieve and prevent stiffness and pain caused by chronic stress, anxiety, injury, and “aging.” Sensory motor consciousness promotes presence.
Noreen offers punch cards. Payments are made to her directly; not part of studio punch card offerings.

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.
