I've just spent a week at Kripalu, my 12th visit in the past several years. The country's largest holistic center for yoga and health, Kripalu can be calming or envigorating, educational or just plain fun, a personal and silent retreat or an active group event. It offers high quality professional trainings and a wide array of workshops that vary from... More

I have just returned from my 3rd trip to Kripalu and am already looking ahead to my next visit! What an amazing place for restoration and growth. I have participated in programs in digestive health, yoga dance and somatic psychology. Kripalu offers top-notch programs for personal and professional development. Or you can go for an R & R retreat. I'm... More

Just returned from a weekend R&R program at Kripalu, and it was just what I needed to recharge! The grounds and views are beautiful. I wish I was able to spend more time outdoors, but I also tried to participate in the programs offered. I enjoyed several yoga classes, all led by knowledgeable, compassionate instructors. I attended some of the... More

Dear friends, Kripalu is a very nice place to do yoga, get an incredible good massage, enjoy your day and also to visit many different seminares around yoga. Or even become a yoga teacher, the training and style of kripalu yoga seems very profound and healthy to me...but i am just a little yogi type person ;-) For me it... More

I attended a weekend here and really enjoyed it. Some negative reviews I had read here really made me think twice about going, but I really wanted to hear the retreat leader (Geneen Roth) so badly that I decided to sleep in my car if necessary! I don't know what happened to cause such negative reviews, but I had a... More

This is not a resort in the traditional sense, but if you are looking for a place to nourish the soul, then this is a great choice. We weren't sure what to make of the place when we first arrived -- the grounds are stunning, the building is ugly, and the check-in was a zoo -- but once we got... More

I was in residence for a month and the staff were friendly, many of them volunteers. Outside of the program I was registered for, I was able to experience other classes and they were quality also. The dorms are an inexpensive way to stay but be prepared for bare minimum amenities. I stayed in a large dorm with 20+ beds... More

I treated myself to a Hauschka facial ($!75) -- I've had this treatment elsewhere and really enjoy the combination of massage and facial; at other places, I've left glowing and with my face smoother and not puffy (lymph work?). What a disappointment the Kripalu "treatment" was! They did use Hauschka products and the girl who did it was nice enough... More

For years, I had heard of Kripalu from friends and placed it on my bucket list. With a change in schedule, a visit to Kripalu became possible. And, with a mindful decision to seize the day, my long-anticipated visit to and participation at Kripalu became a reality. If you are in search of more than a vacation and if you... More

I have never been to Kripalu before, and I was very worried that I was not "earthy, crunchy" enough to be comfortable in this setting. Everyone I met, staff and guests were all very warm and friendly and the workshop I attended was excellent. The presenter was knowledgable, intelligent and presented a wealth of information in a well organized manner... More
