Kripalu Yoga and Meditation An Intensive Practice Retreat

Immerse yourself in the practices of Kripalu Yoga and the teachings of Swami Kripalu on awakening in daily life. Kripalu Yoga opens a doorway into self and Spirit, inviting practitioners to embark upon a path of transformation that integrates healing, personal growth, effectiveness in life, and spiritual awakening. This retreat includes

  • Daily, all-levels practice of asana, pranayama (breathing techniques), pratyahar (sensory withdrawal), and meditation
  • Introspection and small group work to reveal and receive the power of sangha (spiritual community)
  • Inspirational texts and poetry to bring what’s unseen and unsaid into conscious awareness
  • Sustenance and support for your ongoing practice.

Gather with others walking the transformative path at the heart of the Kripalu tradition. Richard Faulds brings a lifetime of yoga and meditation practice to his teaching, along with his recent work on a book titled Dharma Then Moksha: The Life and Teachings of Swami Kripalu. Danna shares her original poetry and perspective as a long-term Kripalu Yoga practitioner.
