I just called the Kripalu registration number as I was excited to make my first visit and had some questions about the offered programs. The guy I spoke with literally pointed me back to the website (which I had already viewed) and said "We don't take guests on Saturdays, ever, and by the way we are full this weekend so... More

Read all reviews prior to going, went anyway to spend time with my best friend. If you are normal (non-yogi, no offence) person, the place is not for you. Yes, you have a choice of programs, BUT when your get hungry and the "protein" at the dining room is a joke. Plain turkey cold cuts (sporadically), tune salad, and one... More

This rating is for Kripalu. If I could give the program Deep Play for Kids with Missy Brown, a separate rating that would be a 5. Ballingan said it perfectly when he/she said that there is a lack of generosity of spirit in the guest services. That's where this place is so far from yogic. If you sign up your... More

My husband and I had four nights of R&R in March, and we got what we wanted--delicious healthy food, relaxation in a lovely spot above the lake, excellent bodywork, and yoga a few times a day. Kripalu helps us slow down, de-stress, and notice where our lives are going and what we need to pay attention to. It's also a... More

I recently ventured up to Kripalu to attend a Caroline Myss lecture. The facilities were jam packed because there were several other well known lecturers speaking that weekend. I spent the extra money to get a private room in the annex so I could have a private sanctuary to get away from the crowds when I could. My room was... More

Every day there are hundreds of people staying and yoga-ing at Kripalu. Many people obviously love it there and love what Kripalu is offering. But it is not a relaxing, rejuvenating experience for everyone. Personally, I don't find the idea of sleeping in a room where the walls are painted over concrete blocks and having to walk down to the... More

My sisters and I have now visited Kripalu a total of five times in the last six years and we will keep going back. The first time, we did a special weekend package of hiking and yoga. It was only for two nights and we definitely felt we needed more time. The special group packages have specific meeting times and... More

Kripalu is not what you expect. The yoga classes are terrible, the accommodations are tiny, the food is meh, and overall, it is so commercialized and crowded you will not feel relaxed. The teachers peddle their goods (CDs etc) in class and do not stop talking the whole class. You have to fight for a seat at meals. There are... More

I went with some girl and two teachers on a field trip and this was by far the best one to choose. The food is ALL healthy, so there is almost no way to each bad, unless you bring your own junk. Not only that but the yoga classes were really rejuvenating. I recommend that you get your own room... More

The salad bar was contaminated and around 40 people got food poisoning. I missed half of the program I had planned to attend. After inquiring about the incident I was offered a refund for one night only. Missing most of the program was a disappointment. I have also noticed that Kripalu has gotten very crowded and more commercial than it... More

We’re so sorry you had a poor experience, Tia! It’s true that we experienced a food-related issue that weekend. We take this event very seriously; the wellbeing of our guests is our top priority—and indeed, the very heart of our mission at Kripalu. We moved quickly that weekend to assist the guests who were impacted on-site, and to identify and... More
