About Rudy

Some of the first yoga I ever experienced was in Rudy's classes at Kripalu in the late 80's. I am so grateful for Rudy, and his wonderful teaching style! He and his classes gave me clear, friendly instruction, and created the space and for me to love yoga right from the start. 25 years later I'm teaching 11 classes a week, and a Yoga Teacher Training to boot! Thanks Rudy, you're a great teacher.–Scott Willis, M. Ed., Director of the Yoga Center at Solar Hill in Brattleboro, Vermont

Rudy is a superb teacher. He is heart-felt, knowledgeable, a good communicator, and insightful. He’s also very generous and empathetic.–Maureen Moody, Teacher

Rudy Peirce is an amazing presenter: gentle, humble, and humorous.  He makes yoga simple & accessible. –  Debra Leibovich, Yoga Instructor

Gentle Yoga just seems more doable and approachable to me. I'd been taking some individual instruction for a few months when I first went to Kripalu for a weekend. The class I took with Rudy was a revelation and beautiful experience.–M. Simpson

Rudy is the best yoga teacher I’ve ever had!  His class was a perfect combination of learning, relaxation, spiritual atmosphere, humor and support.–Janie Goldenberg

Rudy's Gentle Yoga is a gift to the world!–F. Furrer

Rudy has a great delivery—calm, intentional, clear—and is non judgmental and funny too! He offered many useful modifications and slow and gentle entries into poses that I will incorporate into my beginners Kripalu Yoga classes.–Lisa Friedman Reich, Yoga Teacher

Thank you, Rudy, for the experience of Gentle Yoga.  I am sure it has touched many lives in ways that you could not imagine!  I have such peace in my heart, knowing that I can feel my feelings and emotions for what they truly are. . . not hold them inside and pretend they do not exist. Through prayer, meditation, and yoga flow. . . I can communicate in ways that I never knew were possible.  I'm happy, and everyone around me benefits (i.e., folks around me have a happy-hearted companion, co-worker, mom, daughter, and friend).–Deb Green

Rudy is a wonderful, caring and gracious teacher. He listens to his students needs and addresses them in a peaceful, open and inclusive way. Rudy's "Gentle Yoga" CDs continue to enhance my Kripalu experience in his course from last summer. Namaste' Rudy!–Claudia Cockerill

Rudy is masterful, patient, organized, and wonderful.–Alfa Rivard

About Rudy’s CDs

Experiencing Rudy's Gentle Yoga CDs is quite the ongoing adventure .... like a whole delicious universe of new yoga experiences. I am working my way through slowly and savouring them deeply. A whole fresh universe of practice and support. Thank you Rudy for your beautiful work.–Dan Gryte

After I was diagnosed with a pinched sciatic nerve I started to practice Rudy Peirce’s Gentle Yoga, Part 1. It was so effective in easing my pain (along with a weekly massage) that I practice every day, fearful that if I missed a day, the pain would return. It took several years but I’m happy to say “no more sciatic problems.” Thank you, Rudy–Barbara Means (age 74)

I know it sounds dramatic, but I have to say, working with your tapes I think may be the first, most important step I’m taking to literally save my life! As you can imagine, I am so grateful. Thank you for touching my life in such an extraordinary way.–Susan Wolfe

Rudy, I purchased some of your CDs, Gentle II and III, and have been doing them on and off for some time.I always end my practice by saying "namaste Rudy." I am grateful for your teaching, the times I have taken classes at Kripalu with you and on your great CDs.–M. Simpson

I went to one of your classes at Kripalu and really liked it. I have been practicing [with your CD] Gentle IV since, with great benefit to my low back.–Barry G.

Daily for the last month or so I have been using your Gentle Yoga [CD] (with background by Mark Kelso) to stretch my piriformis [muscle]. This alleviated pressure on my R sciatic nerve that made my toes tingle.  I'm always glad to hear your voice, and want to say THANKS!–Gray Ward

Thank you for sharing your unique gift with us. I have been practicing yoga for 25 years and recognize the importance of keeping all the moving parts flexible and now, in my 60s, and thrilled to find your “Gentle Series” for daily practice. And my husband, fior the first time, is eager to begin.–Carol

Your great ‘Gentle Series’ tapes … have become very precious at the deepest level of my being. They are helping so greatly on restoring the comfort and vitality of my body – the body that has been pushed by dance since I was 3 years old – the body doing yoga for over 40 years and the body that has been teaching non-stop for over 35 years – the body that came to the conference over-tired, in pain and frustrated emotionally. Your sadhana class on Fri A.M. was a gift! However as the weekend progressed I was feeling my years with such a sense of loss for the joy of moving and stretching – I felt weak, tired, depressed, and old sitting in Meditation and doing Pranayama was equally discouraging. At home on Monday morning I played your first tape and did my sadhana to your gentle and encouraging voice. It was magical. To date I worked to all 3 tapes ( 1 each A.M.) and I can’t tell you how much I appreciate your special gifts of leading and teaching. My body feels renewed and pain-free and my energy has returned to where it has always been. Truly, less is more. I was forced by weakness and inertia to stop and by turning to your tapes I am regaining my body and my spirit. The honesty and integrity of the practice you inspire is magnificent, and I pray you’ll continue for many more years.–Yours in yoga, Renuka Paula Heitzner,Yoga Teacher, Board Member NY Yoga Teacher's Association

About Rudy’s programs:

I really enjoyed the pace and different approaches you used [in the Gentle Yoga program], including the afternoon walks and meditation, as well as the work on different postures that I have done before, but now can do more safely and fully.–Jennifer Lloyd

Thank you, Rudy...it was a treat to be led in gentle yoga and yoga nidra for 5 days AND I found that after your program, my yoga classes were inspired by the presence you hold.–Krutika, Yoga Teacher, Kripalu Center

Gentle Yoga just seems more doable and approachable to me. I'd been taking some individual instruction for a few months when I first went to Kripalu for a weekend. I was very nervous about practicing yoga with a group of people, all who would be "better than I was at it. I soon saw this was a ridiculous way to think about it, that no one cared in that way. The class I took with Rudy Peirce was a revelation and beautiful experience. I purchased some of his CDs and have been doing them on and off for some time.  In the past year I have had two knee surgeries and am slowly coming back and regaining strength and flexibility in my knees and legs.  I am looking forward to ordering the next CD. I always end my practice by saying 'Namaste Rudy'. I am grateful for your teaching: for the times I have taken classes at Kripalu with you and on your great CDs.–M.Simpson

Through the gentle approach the ego is not directing affairs. I feel gifted so wholly that I am amazed by the deep contact I feel with my body, myself. From the gentle approach I find the broad range of my being's potential. Very satisfying.–Fenton, Kripalu R and R guest

What I liked best about the program: Yoga for my body, not my body fitting into preset shapes.–Michelle Carron, Attorney

I really enjoyed the pace and different approaches you used [in the Gentle Yoga program], including the afternoon walks and meditation, as well as the work on different postures that I have done before, but now can do more safely and fully. It reminded me of the type of couples therapy that we have done called Imago. It's unique in that you cover many fewer issues than in traditional couples counseling, but you explore them so deeply and intentionally that you really get to the heart of the issue. So I've been thinking of your approach as "Imago Yoga:" from the outside I might seem to be doing less, but actually the deepness of the work means that I end up feeling more fullfilled.  So thank you for that gift.–Jennifer Lloyd
