What About the Rest of Us? One Woman's Story of Walking the Kripalu Path
Danna Faulds

Danna's recent KYTA resource CD, sent out to members this fall, deserves another mention here—it's one of the most honest, intimate, and down-to-earth discussions of yoga and its transformative powers that you can find anywhere. A poet who is currently at work on a memoir, Into the Heart of Yoga, Danna shares pivotal moments and memories from her 20 years of practicing Kripalu Yoga. The talk was recorded at the Swami Kripalu Path of Liberation retreat held in December 2006 at Kripalu; to hear talks by Shobhan Richard Faulds, Yoganand Michael Carroll, and Shivananda Thomas Amelio, also recorded at the retreat, visit

Kripalu Yoga Posture Flow: A Sadhana for Teachers
Larissa Carlson

Watch for this upcoming KYTA resource CD from Larissa Hall Carlson, who shares a variation of her own sadhana that includes pranayama; exploration of Kripalu Yoga Stages I, II, and III; and the compassionate practice of BRFWA (Breathe, Relax, Feel, Watch, Allow). The sequence will offer practitioners ways to enliven, purify, and strengthen the body, while soothing and calming the mind. Larissa is a certified professional-level Kripalu Yoga, prenatal, and chakra yoga teacher, and a Reiki practitioner. She teaches all levels of yoga classes at Kripalu and is Manager of Yoga Education for Kripalu’s Institute for Extraordinary Living.

Gentle Yoga Kit: A Kripalu Program and Yoga for Emotional Flow
Stephen Cope

The beautifully designed, informative, and accessible Gentle Yoga Kit is so cool you'll want to buy one for everyone you know. Stylish yet packed with substance, it features a 72-page book on the physical and spiritual practice of yoga that includes tips and teachings on each posture; a set of 50 flash cards with photographs and key principles for each posture, pranayama, or warm-up; a 70-minute guided gentle yoga experience on CD; and a second disc of instrumental music by Mark Kelso. Stephen’s Yoga for Emotional Flow audiotapes feature practical tips for day-to-day emotional balance, lessons in awakening witness consciousness, and steps for “clearing the field” to end each day with equanimity.

Slang Rhythm Speak
KDZ, The Kripalu Drummers

From the first reverberation of stick on drum, you’ll be hooked and dancing. The second CD from KDZ features Native American flute, body percussion, vocals, and sounds of the jungle, but its heart and soul is the irresistible power of the drumbeat. High-energy tracks like Cassa and Soli in 4 will transport you straight to the DanskineticsR room at Kripalu. while slower tracks, including the atmospheric Dousongoni Daydream and Afro-Groove, are great for using in your yoga classes. Guest artists include pianist Mark Kelso, world-beat musician Rich Goodheart, beat-boxer Lipbone Redding, and 14-year-old djembe prodigy Mohamed Camara. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this CD will benefit KYTA’s Teaching for Diversity program.

The Chakras in Shamanic Practice: Eight Stages of Healing and Transformation
Susan J. Wright

This wise, moving book, part autobiography and part guide to healing, focuses on the eight centers of the chakra system as a map for emotional and spiritual development. A Gestalt psychotherapist, yoga teacher, clinical social worker, massage therapist, and practicing shaman, KYTA member Susan Wright describes how life traumas can be released through shamanic techniques that heal psychic wounds and nurture the energy body. In clear, flowing language, she recounts her own experiences, explains the philosophy behind this work, and offers practices to help move readers toward physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being.
