Start the day off right with Kripalu Yoga (the yoga of compassion); designed to develop a greater sense of non-judgmental self awareness and focus on the health and well-being of the body and mind. The heart of the class is a sequence of postures that stretch, strengthen, and balance the body, followed by deep relaxation and meditation. By offering a gradient approach to the practice, new students can comfortably and safely practice side-by-side with seasoned practitioners. All levels are welcome.
There is the option to register for the 8-week program at a discounted rate, a 7-week class card, or students can purchase a drop-in ticket for $18.00. All tickets must be purchased in advance and can only be used for this session of Kripalu Yoga. The 8 week program runs every Thursday morning from 9:30am-10:45am beginning December 13th until January 31st.
WHAT TO BRING:
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.
