KRIPALU YOGA FOR AGES 50+
Kripalu Yoga is slow and gentle and brings together all parts of our selves – physical, emotional and spiritual. It cultivates the body’s capacity to relax and dramatically reduces the negative effects of stress. With regular yoga practice, we breathe better, we sleep better, we digest our food better and we feel better. We may even begin to recover from chronic illness.
And, for those who are growing older, the best part is that none of these outcomes requires long years of training. The benefits of practice are immediate and at the same time, long-lasting. These classes will combine warm ups and gentle poses, as well as restorative postures. All levels
