Hello Friends,

It’s been wonderful seeing so many new and familiar faces at KYWC this summer for a variety of classes and special events. We had a delightful time with Stu and Sarah for sound healing.  David Wells presented the Intro to Thai yoga.

We’ve had several requests for beginner’s yoga. Nancy has lots of experience teaching this class and has agreed to come out of teacher retirement so we can learn or review the basics of yoga.

Feel free to come by and enjoy our outdoor space.. We have a half-mile walking trail, a stone circle with a fire pit, a fairy house, labyrinth, and a full-sized Native American Tipi on the grounds.  The walking trail and labyrinth are open to the public during daylight hours.


Upcoming Special Events

Visioning Meeting

Join us for a special meeting on Saturday, June 30th at 1 pm. We will be sharing our visions and dreams for the future of KYWC and writing a vision statement for the center.  Your input is valued.

Our Mission Statement:

The Kripalu Yoga and Wellness Center of Northern New York is founded on the belief that all humanity is one family and that the Divine is within each of us.  Our Center is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting the integration of body, mind and spirit.  We support this philosophy through the teaching and practice of yoga, health related programs, and services to nurture personal growth and community.

A vision statement is an aspirational description of what an organization would like to achieve or accomplish in the future. It serves as a clear guide for choosing current and future courses of action.  We will focus on the next 5-10 years. Please share with us:

  • What is your vision for KYWC going forward?
  • What would you like to see happen at the center in the future?
  • What kinds of programs would you attend? Teach?

KYWC November/December 2017 News

Hello Friends,

Here is the schedule of classes and events for November and December. For the most part, we will be offering our regularly-scheduled classes and events through the upcoming holiday season. However, there are a few cancellations and closings to be mindful of. In addition, when South Jeff School District is closed because of weather,  the center is closed for the day. Evening classes are also canceled if after-school activities are canceled.

We are looking for certified yoga/tai chi teachers who would like to offer a class (or two) at the center. Interested or know a teacher who may be? Give us a call at 315-583-5500.

Do you have ideas for other classes/events you would like to take or offer? Reply to this email or let us know at the center.


Yoga Classes

Tuesday 9-10:30 AM Yoga with Barb – Class canceled Nov 14th.

Practice gently yoga breathing and meditation with guided relaxation, a great stress reliever.  The focus of Barbara’s class is between accessible and challenging, creating a catalyst for discovery and healing. Class canceled Nov 14th.

Tuesday Morning 11-12:30 PM Chair Yoga with Barb – Class canceled Nov 14th.

KYWC September 2017 News

Hello Friends,

Happy September and Happy Labor Day!

It happens every year around this time – Fall announces itself with hints of red, orange, and yellow.  Vacations give way to the start of a new school year for teachers and students of all ages.

There is something about autumn, a favorite season for many of us.  Shorter days, cooler nights and the beauty of the leaves brings a calmer, more reflective energy we can feel within ourselves.

Fall also brings the comfort of knowing that even though darker, colder days are ahead (okay, lots of them!) Earth’s patterns and seasons continue on schedule in an unending cycle. Brighter, warm days are ahead.  We can count on order, harmony and a rhythm in the universe, regardless of the what is going on in our lives and in the workings of humankind. And so are these seasons evident  in our own lives as well.


Upcoming Special Event

For you students of the metaphysical and spiritual, KYWC is happy once again to be the venue for two days of classes with Reverend Jean and Richard Toward on Saturday and Sunday, September 23-24, 2017.

Rev Jean Toward

Saturday’s topic: Consciousness as related to your psychic and spiritual path.

Sunday’s topic: Interpreting sacred writings. The Towards will share and interpret writings from different traditions. You are invited to bring sacred passages that are meaningful and/or mysterious to you.

Time: 10am-5pm

Cost: $100 for both days.

This event is hosted by the Center for Spiritual Awareness.  Pre-registration is encouraged but not necessary. (Knowing how many people are coming helps us set up the right number of tables and chairs for this very popular event!). Call Reverend Denise Knott to let her know you are coming. 315-298-3734.
