Kripalu Yoga, a compassionate style of hatha yoga, offers a meditative experience for unlocking tensions and achieving peace of mind. This site was previously occupied by the Bikram Yoga College, which has moved to new quarters two buildings down from its previous location.
So what's different about Kripalu Yoga? The trademarks of Kripalu Yoga, named after swami Kripalvanandji, the late enlightened swami from India, is its meditative, inward focus and its emphasis on the breath. Both features encourage a sense of peace and deep relaxation, which begins to flow over into everyday life. If you've every wanted to learn more about this ancient system for achieving physical, mental, and spiritual well-being, then come experience hatha yoga at Yoga Hawaii. You don't have to be flexible to begin; you can start wherever you are. Soon you will notice your body unfolding, gaining more tone and flexibility, stamina and strength. Other benefits include increased focus, a quieter mind, more self-acceptance, and joy.
