Start the day off right with Kripalu Yoga (the yoga of compassion) which is designed to develop a greater sense of non-judgmental self awareness. The focus is on the health and well-being of your body, for your mind and for your spirit. This class will begin with warm-up movements and breath awareness to prepare you for yoga postures. The heart of the class is a sequence of postures that stretch, strengthen and balance your body. Each class ends with deep relaxation and meditation. All levels are welcome. By offering a gradient approach to the practice, new students can comfortably and safely practice side-by-side with seasoned practitioners. Students should wear loose fitting clothing and bring a yoga mat, beach towel or small blanket, and bottled water. Additional yoga props including yoga straps, blocks, and tennis balls will be available for use.
There is the option to register for a drop-in class for $18.00 or a 8-class card at a discounted rate.
