TUESDAYS: Kripalu yoga & iRest Guided meditation

7:15pm to 8:30pm

Hollow Glen Community Centre, Chelsea Quebec

Kripalu Yoga uses classic Hatha yoga postures, breath work, mindfulness, and relaxation. What defines Kripalu Yoga is its emphasis on following your energy, practicing compassionate self-acceptance, developing witness consciousness, and taking your experience of yoga into your daily life. Kripalu Yoga is adaptable for all body types, ages, fitness levels, and interests and takes into account each person’s unique body, individuality and personal expression.

iRest Yoga Nidra Guided Meditation induces deep relaxation throughout the entire body-mind and teaches you time-tested tools to reduce stress, engage healing, resolve trauma and neutralize anxiety, fear, anger, depression, insomnia and chronic pain.
