In addition to the classes listed below, Private Yoga Instruction, Thai Yoga Bodywork, and Yoga Therapy are all available by appointment.


GENTLE YOGA

In the practice of Gentle Yoga we learn to let go of any ideas we might be holding on to about perfection as we learn to be with ourselves, just as we are right now. We learn to be with the sensations in our bodies; to be with the way thoughts move through our minds; to be with our feelings...our hurts and sorrows as well as our joys. We learn to be with our limitations as well as our magnificence. At the center of Kripalu yoga is this practice of learning to be present to experience and we begin by learning to listen to the wisdom of the body. This class is perfect for anyone experiencing chronic pain and/or disability. It also works very well for pregnant students.

ALL LEVELS YOGA

We invite you to join us in the adventure of tuning into your body's inherent wisdom and finding your own personal pace as each teacher provides presence, assistance and guidance along The Way.

RESTORATIVE YOGA

Using props (pillows, blankets, bolsters, etc.) to support the body, muscles and organs are induced to relax deeply, thus allowing the immune system to receive a boost. This is a the Yoga of being rather than doing. This practice is the perfect antidote to weakness, fatigue or stress from everyday life. Much personal assistance will be offered in this class to allow you to find as much relaxation of mind and body as possible.

YOGA FOR TEENS

A fun, flowing class for teens which will focus on basic yoga postures and posture flows to help improve flexibility, strength and focus and encourage a sense of peace and balance in this busy, often stressful world. Students will be guided to follow the breath and tune into their individual bodies as they practice mindfulness and meditation in the movements while at the same time enjoying the energy of community in the group.

INTEGRATIVE RESTORATION (iREST)

iRest or Integrative Restoration is a form of Yoga Nidra (The Sleep of the Yogi) where the participant has nothing to do but relax and receive a guided meditation. iRest is a profoundly transformative practice that leads to lasting psychological change, as well as physical and emotional healing. It teaches how to live a contented life, free of conflict, anxiety and fear and suffering by revealing our inherent ground of health and wholeness of mind and body. iRest teaches us how to embody skills that we can use throughout our lifetime, that provide us with a sense of confidence when encountering difficult situations, and teaches us how to embody joy and well-being throughout our daily life.

iRest participants report that they...

* Sleep much better
* Experience decreases in insomnia
* Just feel happier
* Feel their depression, anxiety and fear are all reduced
* Feel greater comfort and ease in their body and mind
* Experience decreased perceptions of chronic and acute pain
* Feel more conncected in their interpersonal relationships
* Feel more comfortable when encountering circumstances they cannot control
* Feel an increased calm and well-being
* Experience an increased sense of control in their lives

Additionally, iRest is being used with great success and research (at Walter Reed Army Hospital, for example) supports its efficacy with PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder).
