What is Kripalu Yoga?
"You learn many of the same postures as in other yoga classes, but the emphasis is not only on how you practice, but also on how you live your life."
-Brahmani Holly Liebman
Kripalu yoga is a practice of revitalizing the body, calming the mind and deepening self-awareness. It brings our body, mind and soul into a state of balance and harmony practicing awareness of ourselves, one another and our surroundings. Kripalu teaches us to live in our present. The deeper the practice the deeper the tranformation, allowing us to attend to our trapped emotions and unproductive thinking. It encourages us to create space within ourselves by letting go of stale thoughts as well as to listen to what our body needs here and now. We are given the space to explore and open our hearts, settle into our bodies and explore the life force, prana. "Breath, Relax, Feel, Watch, Allow."
"Your bright spirt and smile light up the whole
studio, and your classes are a wonderful fit for
what I hope the studio continues to be defined
by... Purposeful safe, just strong enough, with
plenty of space for observation, noticing, and quiet..." - Petra Ledkovsky, owner Orleans Yoga
