Sudha offers the following Integrative Approaches to Body /Mind Healing 

My approach stems from a belief that there is a place of deep centeredness residing within each of us, a wellspring from which our authentic wholeness emanates and reflects out to the world around us. The ability to live in that place of wholeness and ease is best achieved when the body/mind is in a state of balance.  It is that state of balance that I strive to help others reach.  Of course there are many paths and approaches to healing.  In my 30 years of practice, U resonate most with those listed below.  They are a mix of ancient and modern healing techniques for self-discovery and healing.  I love what I have been called to do and I love to work collaboratively as well as to intuitively with each client and group.      

BREAST CANCER EDUCATION - Supporting women before, during & post treatment
THERAPEUTIC YOGA - Postures, Breathing, Meditation customized for specific needs
BACK CARE- Reclaiming strength & mobility

Labyrinth Walking - the opportunity to take a stroll with your soul

What is a labyrinth?   Labyrinths are ancient symbols and spiritual tools created from sacred geometric patterns. Unlike mazes, labyrinths have only one path—a meandering but purposeful path to the center. The way out is the same as the path walked in.

Many people walk labyrinths as a form of meditation or prayer, producing a contemplative state and connection to the divinity in all things. For others, they offer a metaphor for journeying into the deepest self and the return back into the world with a broadened understanding and insight into one’s true nature.

Intended as a place of refuge and sanctuary, the kripalu labyrinth is located on the southwest side of the Main Drive, just a short walk down the hill from the main Shadowbrook building. Built in the spring of 2001, it is laid out in the classic seven-circuit Cretan pattern and measures 90 feet in diameter and 1,000 feet in length.

Begin your labyrinth walk by pausing at the entrance, becoming aware of your breath, and setting an intention for your walk, such as seeking insight or answers to a specific issue in your life; honoring the memory of a loved one; praying; or simply slowing down and taking time for reflection. Then simply take the first step and let the journey unfold.

~ Sudha Carolyn Lundeen, RN is a holistic educator and Kripalu Yoga teacher-trainer who, along with Kevin Foran (Moose), inspired the building of Kripalu’s labyrinth
