Kripalu Restore and Relax Yoga

Gentle movement combined with restorative postures, meditation and Yoga Nidra.
Restorative yoga is a deeply calming form of yoga, practiced with minimal physical effort. Poses, generally practiced lying down, are held for three to five minutes or more and involve the use of props in order to create maximum support and relaxation for various parts of the body. A typical class will encourage gentle forward and backward bends, easy twists and mild inversions. This is an excellent practice for those in need of a deep muscular and/or mental release and/or as a supplement to more active yoga styles.

Instructor: Matt Prezioso

Tai Chi

The Chinese art of Tai Ji Quan (Tai Chi) enjoys considerable fame as a slow-motion health maintenance exercise. Its popularity has been steadily increasing in Western countries for several decades. This course, and its ongoing version, will focus on the health aspects primarily, but will also include occasional exploration of the philosophical and martial characteristics.

Tai Ji practitioners should wear loose comfortable clothes, a minimum of jewelry (no watches or bracelets), and wear only socks, bare feet, or cotton-soled gong fu shows.

The basic principles of Viniyoga are linking the breath and the movement of the spine, arranging the flow of poses for safety and maximum effect and adapting the postures for each individual based on their needs and ability. We do not use complex postures but instead focus on deepening the student's experience, on being more present in the posture. Classes often include some study of the yoga sutras, using them to set an intention for the day's practice.
