The openness and honesty of our group-- the feelings of community and non-judgment at Kripalu. The amazing informative impassioned teachers. The opportunity to experience so many things. The healing arts taking my expansion one step further. The yoga and yogadance experience. I felt so alive dancing and so at peace in yoga!
