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

I've been visiting Kripalu when I've had moments to spare since I first discovered it 12 years ago. I go back to rebalance, renew, and remember that humanity can be, in fact, essentially good and kind and safe. I have been practicing yoga for the same amount of time, but one does not need to be a hard-core yogi to... More

What an excellent environment in so many aspects. The area that surrounds Kripalu is gorgeous. The yoga spaces are peaceful and spacious. The staff is informative and knowledgeable. My bed was extremely comfortable! All areas of the buildings and grounds were well maintained. The food was delicious and clean. And...the gift shop is fabulous! The guest speakers they offer are...

This place is wonderful! Any level yoga from never ever to highly experienced can enjoy this place. This classes are constant and if you want to relax try out the sauna and whirlpool. If this isn't your idea of relaxation then go to any of the many reading areas or respite spots. Hiking trails abound although I was snow shoeing... More

After getting their catalogs for years, and being so attracted to the interesting and offbeat sounding programs, we finally went. I have to say at the outset that we were on a commuter plan, being so close, so we did not stay. Others have talked about the rooms, though. The facilities are very good, but be prepared not to have... More

Went to the Kripalu Center for an appointment for Positional Therapy. I was skeptical, but it has really helped me. The therapist gave me some exercises to continue and I feel so much better.
