Yoga Classes

In Kripalu Yoga, you learn many of the same postures as in other yoga classes, but the emphasis is not only on how you practice, but also on how you live your life.
— Brahmani Holly Liebman
 

At the Zeal Center, we teach Kripalu Yoga.  Kripalu means being compassionate in Sanskrit, the language of the yoga tradition. 

While we teach the same basic yoga postures as most yoga classes, below are just a few attributes unique to Kripalu yoga (from the book Kripalu Yoga):

  • Practice begins gently with an emphasis on being present in your body, sustaining a flowing breath and warming up.

  • It allows you to choose the level of physical intensity right for your body.

  • It recognizes that every body is different.

  • It encourages you to create a lifestyle supportive of your health by listening to your own body.

We believe that this is your yoga practice and we are here to assist you to achieve your best practice. We always offer modifications for poses in our classes and are available for questions or concerns.

Drop-in Class: $12

30 Days of Unlimited Yoga: $45

All Levels Flow

All Levels Flow is a vinyasa (or flow) class meaning we spend less time breaking down poses, as we might do in a Beginner's Yoga class and more time in continuous movement through poses. We always take into account where students are at while moving through the flow and offer different levels of a pose for more or less difficulty.


Morning flow

This gentle yoga is accessible for all levels. Breath and movement will flow us from one posture to the next. Students will feel refreshed, relaxed and ready for the day at the conclusion of this practice.

Yin Yoga Sampler

Yin Yoga is an approach that uses traditional yoga poses in a non-traditional way. You come into a pose, settle into it, and hold the posture awhile, allowing the muscles to soften. Yin Yoga focuses on the connective tissues, bones and joints rather than the muscles.
