Kripalu yoga is designed to adapt to all body types, ages, fitness levels, and interests. Classes typically start with a brief centering and a coming into stillness. They incorporate some breathe work stretches so that the spine is moved in six directions. Then class moves to asanas (postures), standing balances, and conclude in shivasana (rest pose) so that students leave the class feeling refreshed and restored. Classes are often defined as gentle, moderate, or vigorous, referring to the intensity of practice; however, because our needs vary from day to day and over time, students in Kripalu Yoga classes are encouraged to tune in to their bodies and practice at intensity that feels right in the present moment.  All Levels Welcome
