Yoga Nidra is the yogic sleep, a deep relaxation on all the levels of your being. Leaves you relaxed and energized, as you lie down and journey through a guided meditation. Even if you drift off, you receive the benefits, such as relief from depression and chronic pain.

Karen Kwass, MSW, RYT 500 and Kripalu certified yoga teacher, has enjoyed yoga for over 20 years. After receiving a black belt in Uechi-Ryu karate and developing chronic plantar fasciitis she turned to yoga in effort to heal herself.  Karen guides gentle and moderate yoga classes in a safe and supportive environment allowing students to go inwards and explore themselves.   She brings joy, compassion, an awareness of her students, and an ability to adapt or modify postures in effort to meet individual needs.

Kripalu yoga is a mindful yoga practice linking breath awareness with movement and meditation. Kripalu yoga strengthens and stretches the body. Students are guided to find their own level of practice by looking inward and listening to their body. Gentle postures and flow enhance body/mind/spirit awareness and can lead to increased energy,
healing and self growth.

Yoga has transformed me in so  many ways, providing healing physically, emotionally and spiritually.  From gratitude and passion I would like to make yoga accessible to all, to those who don't think they can do it.  Everyone can do yoga.  And  to long-time practitioners of yoga I invite you to go deeper and to use yoga as a vehicle for continuing personal transformation.
