I just spent a week at Kripalu enjoying all its delightful offerings...and I'm still feeling the effects. It's such a peaceful "cocoon-like" environment...I didn't want to leave. First of all, the instruction for the program I attended was professional, caring, inspiring. The additional activities, noon dance, drum circle, cooking demo, kirtan, morning and afternoon Kripalu yoga, etc. were interesting, fun and exposed me to things I might not otherwise have tried.
The food, as so many have commented, is nutritious, varied, abundant...and delicious. There seems to be some debate among posters about the accommodations. Keeping that in mind, I stayed in the annex. My room was just perfect: immaculate, simple and basic yet not stark. A comfortable bed, good reading light, modern, private bathroom, excellent maid service and very, very quiet. Everyone seems to be very thoughtful about maintaining this serene environment, i.e. being mindful about cell phone use and noise in common areas.
Overall, a delightful experience.
