In Discovery Yoga classes you get great exercise and more. In addition to our focus on physical and mental practices that build health, reduce stress and retard the aging process, we provide the resources, support and environment for you to increase your capacity for self-discovery and attunement. Coming together with like-minded people in the spirit of Yoga creates a group energy that allows for deeper absorption into the practice. Each class is a complete experience, including centering, warm-ups (pratapana), yoga postures (asana), yogic breathing (pranayama), relaxation (yoga nidra) and integration.

"I had the joy of attending your Friday class... I loved the immersion into Kripalu and the focus on healing. Your class was prehaps the best I have ever taken in 5 years of doing yoga."
-Carolyn Babcock, Ph.D., Professor of Communication

Practice classes are offered at various levels of intensity and intention:

Beginner - basic practice of foundational postures & breathing techniques
- easy and relaxing

All Levels - easy to challenging with modifications & variations for any level of practice

Kripalu Yoga: A flow of postures with emphasis on body awareness, alignment and coordination of breath & movement. Students are encouraged to practice at their own level, using variations and modifications to give postures more or less challenge. Classes may be enhanced by music, rhythms and inspirational readings to promote meditative awareness.

Vinyasa Flow: A powerful flow of hatha yoga postures, linked through a series of connecting movements (vinyasa), synchronized with smooth, deep breathing (ujjayi), gaze (dristi) and locks (bandhas).

Yin Yoga: This slow, deeply meditative yet revitalizing practice helps to release and lengthen the body's deep fascia and connective tissue, providing a wonderful balance to our more active Yang practice and lifestyle. Longer held Yin Yoga postures combined with yogic breathing can also release energy blockages in the physical and emotional bodies. Standing Yin practices (e.g. t'ai chi and qigong) are also introduced.

Yin/Yang Flow: "The practice of yin/yang yoga helps us to learn about stillness in movement and the flow in stillness". -Sara Powers. Yin/Yang Yoga provides a balanced practice and has a powerful effect on energy levels. dynamic, active poses for gently building strength and fitness. Slower, quieter poses work deeper on the joints, connective tissue, and nervous system. The class concludes with Yoga Nidra, which can serve as a pathway to freedom.

Chakra Yoga: Discover how to open and align the 7 chakras, or energy centers, through yoga postures, breath, and meditation.  This slow, mindful practice explores the energy body and its profound effect on health and healing.
