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.

 

 

Awakening Grace Programs

Meditation

lotus rises

Meditation is offered by donation every Saturday morning from 7:15-7:45am. 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.

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.
