Kripalu Yoga

The best part of the retreat at Kripalu was the unlimited yoga classes you can take. Upon arriving I tried the gentle yoga class before dinner. I found it to be very relaxing with a lot of stretching. I was surprised to find how easy the class was and that my yoga practice has advance from a beginner level. Saturday and Sunday I took the moderate yoga class with Michelle who was an excellent teacher. She encourages us to explore each pose using our own ability to guide referring our yoga mats as science labs. I think it is important to remember that each individual practice is unique meeting their needs. As a yogini with physical limitations I am proud how far I have come in my practice and each day I am growing and learning with each pose. I also loved the powerful energy in the class’s fuel by the love of yoga. I am already looking forward to my next retreat at Kripalu.

    So nice Carrie! I’m a little behind on blog reading, the summer has been busy. But what a wonder experience and I love the idea of our mats being a science lab ~ I totally agree!
