Kripalu Yoga Directory

Welcome to the Yoga Journal Kripalu Yoga Directory page. In this section you will find yoga studios, retreat centers, and teachers who specialize or incorporate Kripalu Yoga into their practice and philosophy.

Swami Kripalu (1913-1981) was a Kundalini Yoga master who developed Kripalu Yoga. His teachings and yoga postures came to him after a spiritual awakening from his own intensive practice of mediation, pranayama, and yoga. The primary aim of Kripalu Yoga practice is to awaken the prana (life force energy) that will enable you to thrive in all aspects of your life. Kripalu is geared toward students who are interested in their own experience to guide their yoga practice. A teacher is merely a guide to help a student through asana, breath work, and meditation. Class styles can vary from gentle yoga for seniors to strenuous yoga. Teachers will always encourage students to listen to the messages their bodies are giving and let that be the guide to the practice. Kripalu encourages people to develop their own inner wisdom in all areas of their lives.
