Is There Any Hope? There Sure Is!

Please Join One of The 10 Influential Teachers Who Have Shaped Yoga in America, GABRIEL HALPERN, for 3 Week Workshop.

What are the implications of doing yoga practices for how we go ahead and live our daily lives? In such uncertain times, yoga offers clear guidelines of how to best channel our physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being.

The classical definition of Kriya Yoga is tapas, swadhyaya, and isvara pranidhana. Action, combined with study of your subject and devotion to it brings about peace of mind.

This 3 week series will substantiate those claims through direct the experiences of asana, scriptural study, and surrender of results. We will articulate the philosophy behind each niyama with a power point presentation and a lively group discussion about the philosophical implications of Kriya Yoga for our daily life. The class will finish with a sequence of asanas that help develop self discipline, study habits, and devotion to our chosen ideal.

We invite you all to build community by giving and getting support from sharing this together.


Week 1: Chair Yoga;
Week 2: Pranayama, Reclining and Sitting;
Week 3: Mantra, Mudra, and Meditation.

"The Therapeutics Master
Gabriel Halpern, Chicago, IL

Halpern is often referred to as “The Godfather” in the Chicago yoga world where he’s been teaching for the past 30 years, and where he’s influenced nearly every single major teacher at Chicago’s yogic strongholds, Moksha Yoga and Yogaview, where Halpern regularly leads workshops. Halpern holds degrees in philosophy and health psychology and was trained under the Iyengar yoga method in both San Francisco, and Pune, India. He founded his River North studio, Yoga Circle, in 1985, and he teaches there and around the world, focusing on yoga therapeutics. His methodology for therapeutic classes are modeled on Iyengar’s techniques, wherein he begins with first giving relief to get a person out of pain and then correcting their anatomy, which sometimes takes years."
