“It has been incredibly grounding for me to do the [breath] practice with you. It’s like being with a friend and feeling connected to myself at the same time. In a time when things feel uncertain, practices through the lens of Kripalu are deeply meaningful… I’m very grateful for the steadiness of the everyday practice.”

I have taken several of Rudy's classes during numerous visits to Kripalu. What a blessing you have been to my life and well being. I so enjoy your zoom practices. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. What a blessing you are to our entire online community.
