Hatha Slow Yoga is about slowing down and diving into the whole teachings of traditional Hatha Yoga. Join us as we continue to dive into yoga as taught by the original sages. Our practice is more than asanas as we journey to find our bliss.
Lester Karplus is a certified E-RYT and YACEP with Yoga Alliance and has been teaching yoga since 2013.
Lester began his spiritual journey in the mid-’70s adopting a regular meditation practice. Desiring to balance with the physical and work through some back problems, he added a yoga practice in the early 2000s. Wanting to deepen the practice more, Lester completed the Yoga World Reach 200 hour certificate in 2013. Along with studying many aspects of Yoga, he has also been certified to teach Principle-Based Partner Yoga along with certification for teaching Yoga to Youth at Risk.
Lester’s training in western philosophy and psychology combined with zen meditation and traditional schools of yoga brings a unique mix to his teaching style. His desire is to bring traditional values and benefits of yoga to each practice combining asana, pranayama, and meditation geared to the needs of each student.
