Slow Yoga and Qigong Relax and Restore

For all levels; no yoga or qigong experience necessary.

Nourish your vital energy, calm your mind, and practice living in the moment with a wise and loving heart. Experience the bliss of deep relaxation through restorative yoga, guided imagery, and attention training. Explore qigong and learn to move with ease, grace, and freedom while remaining rooted and centered.

This program includes beginner-friendly meditation; a morning and evening qigong sequence that improves posture, balance, stamina, and longevity; and Yin Yoga to enhance flexibility and relieve chronic tension in the spine, hips, and low back. Open your senses and cultivate harmony with the natural world by practicing qigong and walking meditation on Kripalu’s beautiful grounds with stunning lake and mountain views.

Relaxation happens naturally when you slow down and come back into balance. Stay energized and in the flow, with a daily practice you can sustain at home.

I felt accepted and supported. Loved Ken’s soothing voice, imagery, and gentle space to rest and be myself. Returned home clear-headed and de-cluttered my house! —Claudia L., professor/author, Cambridge, Massachusetts

Food for body and spirit! A whole new approach to yoga, movement, and breath that I can integrate into daily living. —Dianne H., Litchfield, New Hampshire
