    Student Comments about Art And Yoga Class at Kirpalu

    • Integration of yoga and art was seamlessly melded into an experience of growth. Sense of trust, compassion and loving kindness fostered. Our presenter-very genuine…a quick study, able to think on her feet and respond to the needs of the group- profoundly sensitive and tuned in.”
      —Annaliese, professor, Amherst, MA, Previous course participant
    • Hari Kirin “created a safe place to be vunerable and accepting of all participants…excellent class design and execution suburb.”
      —Lynn, artist / writer, Greenwich CT
    • “This course helped keep me strong in the face of very difficult family circumstances and encouraged me to continue along the artistic path I have found myself traveling for a couple of years. It taught me how to listen to myself and others more patiently and compassionately. …Now I feel I have a new repertoire of skills and images to mentor the present hour whatever it holds.”
      —Emily, mother, poet and fiber artist
    • “The Art really helped me to see that I am not necessarily the uncreative person I thought I was!”
      —Gina, mother
    • “This practice opened me to a new way of practicing yoga, which I would love to continue. The studio time was both, a challenge and a pleasure-new territory for someone who doesn’t ‘create’ in this way. You opened so many doors, and have illuminated a path I’m very grateful to be set upon.”
      —Katrina, writer and editor.
