Yoga is a light,
which once lit, will never dim.
The better your practice, the
brighter the flame.
Kripalu Yoga blends inner focus, postures, and breathwork to encourage and develop an internal meditative awareness and experience of yoga. Moving slowly and easing into postures, Kripalu yoga emphasizes following the flow of energy (prana), compassionate self-acceptance, observing the activity of the mind without judgment, and taking what is learned on the mat into daily life. The practice teaches you to tap into your own inner-knowing and wisdom establishing an intimate and nurturing relationship with your body. Every sensation is responded to with tenderness and compassion, and each practice is approached with an attitude of openness and acceptance.
Classes begin with warm-up movements and breath awareness to cultivate a relaxed state in the body

Each Zumba® class is designed to bring people together to sweat it on. Zumba takes the "work" out of workout, by mixing low-intensity and high-intensity moves for an interval-style, calorie-burning dance fitness party. Once the Latin and World rhythms take over, you'll see why Zumba® Fitness classes are often called exercise in disguise.
Zumba is taught by Janis Von Borstel.
