Brittany’s beginner Kripalu Yoga class is an
excellent introduction for those who are new
to yoga. She will articulate and show you methodically
how to work through the yoga asanas.
Her Kripalu Yoga method supports you with props
to give you that extra help when needed. She will
show you variations of the pose that best suit your
body type and abilities.Beginner Kripalu Yoga will
teach you the skills of self-observation without judgment.
If you are a seasoned yogi Brittany will guide you t0
find a deeper connection in your practice. Perhaps
you have been practicing an asana in a way that
prevents you from relaxing in the asana when it is
in its deepest form. Her class will help with this through
instruction and breaking down the pose to accommodate
your abilities. Fully experience the yoga with mind,body and
energy. Learn to tap into your own inner-knowing.
With yoga Brittany will show you how to stay in the presence
and in the experience of your body with a mind that is
focused on the body experience. This keeps you out of
thinking mind, therefore it begins to train you to no longer
live in your head.
Brittany will help you hone your ‘self-observation without judgment’
skills throughout the class. You will gain a greater understanding
of alignment. She builds each pose from the ground up. There is no possibility to
do the asana wrong. There is only the possibility that you will enjoy
each aspect of the asana, thus ensuring your total relaxation in
the deepest form of the asanas for you today. Brittany will offer various
modifications that you can do to alter the pose for your body condition.
She will suggest and offer props throughout the class. Her gentle teaching
method is about you discovering what works best for your body, today. She does
this as a guide and instructor so you are not left alone to figure out what you need.
Brittany will offer assists in the poses as you may need and want them. Therefore
providing the emotional and physical support that you need.
Brittany first took yoga seriously in college. Brittany continued to practice yoga throughout college and Physical Therapy graduate school. As a result she was able to stretch and strengthen her body while calming her busy mind. Yoga helped Brittany navigate the changes that occurred as she began her professional life as a physical therapist. Her knowledge of the human body gave her a better understanding of the alignment principles of the asanas (postures) and allowed her to create a deeper connection between body, mind, and spirit. Attaining calm, alertness, and presence with others she interacted with when practicing yoga regularly allowed her to bring the practice to her vocation as a physical therapist. Her patients who practiced yoga tended to be more in tune with their bodies and often had a smoother recovery process. You can read more about Brittany St. Martin here.
