Hello and Welcome to our site!
My name is Jane and I teach the Kripalu style of yoga.
We are all familiar with the saying, "Home is where the heart is." When yoga is practiced as the Yoga Masters intended, we experience a relaxed, warm, peaceful feeling that takes us into our heart and makes us feel at "home."
Yoga is also a complete form of self-improvement, since it deals with every aspect of life, i.e., physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. As such, it can, if you choose, become a "way of life."
Yoga should always be an enjoyable experience. If you feel pushed, in pain, or that you have to achieve something, then it is no longer yoga. When done correctly, you will feel an inner peace accompanied by a deep sense of relaxation and contentment. You will find that the more you practice, the better you will feel.

Kripalu Yoga Class description
Classes are small and intimate with a friendly, supportive atmosphere. Students are encouraged to progress at their own pace and ask questions whenever they are unclear about what is being taught, especially in beginner classes. Because people experience a myriad of benefits from practicing yoga, it is always inspiring to hear their stories of triumph. It gives people a sense of just how far they can go in improving the quality of their health and overall well-being. So sometimes students share a breakthrough or recently observed benefit.
Kripalu Yoga Class levels
Presently there are 2 levels of classes, Beginners and Moderate/All Levels.
In our Beginner l class you will learn:-
You will also receive teachings and explanations of what Yoga is all about and be given the opportunity to ask any questions and share.
Our "Moderate/All Levels" classes are a flow of movements. We start with warm-ups, followed by standing postures, sitting postures, postures on the back and postures on the stomach although not necessarily in that order. Several variations of the postures are given so that each student can choose the level at which he or she is comfortable. We incorporate "hara breaths" and other sitting breaths followed by deep relaxation and finally a short meditation. Special additional teaching is included as needed and requested, such as focusing in on one posture and explaining it in detail.
