Yoga with Jeanne - Gentle Kripalu Yoga with Jeanne Thornton, RYT, MSW

Jeanne Thornton, RYT, has
taught gentle yoga in the Kripalu
tradition since the late 1990's. This is a gentle,inward focused style of hatha yoga, inviting the practitioner to be mindful and compassionate with self. Classes are offered at two locations in Littleton, three mornings and one evening each week.  Jeanne also offers workshops, Wise Woman retreats and private instruction.

PLEASE SCROLL DOWN FOR A SCHEDULE OF CURRENT CLASSES and visit the Events page for notification of upcoming workshops and retreats as they are scheduled in upcoming months

With every class, Jeanne offers a unique theme, weaving instruction in the practice of mindful asana (movement/postures),  pranayama (breathing techniques), Ayurveda, yogic philosophy and teachings from many wisdom traditions.  The invitation in every class is to arrive on our mats in Beginner'sMind, accepting our bodies and our lives just as they are in this moment.  Our practice then naturally extends to life "off the mat" to which we bring the same intentions of non-judgment, compassion and freedom from expectations. This is the philosophy of Kripalu style yoga, which is sometimes referred to as the "Yoga of Compassion".
"I came to class to learn 'proper alignment' in the poses. What I ended up learning was more about proper alignment of my heart and spirit."
                                                                                                        --a Kripalu student
"Jeanne offers an approach to yoga that gives you pause for reflection in your everyday world.  Her classes introduce the wisdom of the sages that suggests we be more of who we are. 
The asanas are gentle, restorative and non-competitive.  Each participant is encouraged to honor her or his body and to respect its limitations.  I'd recommend these classes for beginners as well as seasoned practitioners."
                                                                 --Student Testimonial
"Jeanne's retreats are amazing. I look forward to the next one the day
 after each retreat ends!  Her retreats ground me, give me strength and
 joy.  I would go anywhere to attend them~it's the very best gift I give
