Kripalu Yoga in Centrepointe

Kripalu Yoga Class - General Level
Session begins 9 February 2009

This series is a general-level 10-week session of Kripalu yoga classes.

Kripalu classes are designed for your body, mind and spirit. Destress and refresh your body as you stretch and tone your muscles, releasing chronic tension. Calm restless thoughts and cultivate your concentration to support mental clarity and confidence. A Kripalu yoga practice encourages self-acceptance, teaches you to honor your inner wisdom, and invites peace within.

Kripalu classes taught by Shulamit will integrate Kripalu postures and experiential technology with breath and posture elements from the Viniyoga tradition. Classes begin with warm-up movements and breath awareness in preparation for postures. The heart of each class is a sequence of postures that stretch, strengthen and balance your body. Each class ends with deep relaxation.

Time: Mondays 7:45 - 8:45 p.m.
Location: Livewell Health, 100 Centrepointe Drive, Nepean

Cost: 10 classes for $140
Pre-registration is required.
To register, contact Livewell Health at 613-225-3339.
