Throughout Kripalu Yoga’s three-stage approach you are guided to move at your own pace, honoring your body’s needs in each moment. Kripalu Yoga develops the body, mind and spirit, in a compassionate non judgmental way. You leave the class feeling uplifted and centered.

Stage 1 – Willful Practice (Body and Breath Awareness)
Stage 1 begins with an experiential approach to understanding the details of alignment and the coordination of breath while moving into and out of postures.

Stage 2 – Holding the Posture (Inner Focus and Concentration)
Stage 2 guides you to focus your attention on inner sensations, thoughts and emotions. You learn to hold postures for longer periods of time while cultivating compassion and awareness.

Stage 3 – Meditation in Motion (Absorption)
Stage 3 is a unique and personal experience of Kripalu Yoga. You practice the art of moving in response to your body’s wisdom, with postures flowing from one into the next. This experience is often described as a state of prayer expressed in movement.
