The highest form of spiritual practice is self observation with compassion. – Swami Kripalu
The word “kripalu” means compassion. Kripalu yoga is a practice of deep self-inquiry. It teaches a way of living that encompasses all expressions of life and cultivates courage and discernment to embrace truth and enter into a loving and authentic relationship with oneself.
The inquiry-based Kripalu yoga methodology awakens curiosity about life and instills a letting go of what is right and wrong. With consistent practice, one can increase the ability to “tolerate the consequences of being oneself.” The practitioners become more skillful in dealing with life challenges.
During the retreat, participants will explore Kripalu’s Three Stages of Transformation, the doorway to enter into a practice of loving and accepting oneself. The first stage focuses on alignment principles, building postures from the ground up while cultivating the union of body and breath. Drawing attention inward to focus on sensations while sustaining a pose is the second stage, strengthening witness consciousness in the multi-dimensional self. In the third stage, surrender to the wisdom of prana and find your unique expression of yoga and movement through meditation in motion — the hallmark of Kripalu yoga.
Experience a weekend of unfolding into your true self in a sacred and safe environment. Yogis of all levels and traditions are welcome.
