Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health is a nonprofit educational organization dedicated to empowering people and communities to realize their full potential through the transformative wisdom and practice of yoga.
For more than 30 years, Kripalu (kri-PAH-loo) has been teaching skills for optimal living through education for the whole person: body, mind, and spirit. It is the largest and most established retreat center for yoga, health, and holistic living in North America.
Surrounded by 300 beautiful acres, Kripalu Center sits on a hilltop, with exquisite views of surrounding woodlands, hills, valleys, and the beautiful and serene Lake Mahkeenac.
Kripalu offers you simplicity and comfort. In the tradition of retreat-style housing, our accommodations are designed to support your program experience, without the distraction of televisions, telephones, etc. We offer a range of housing options that allow a wide variety of people to participate in our programs. Accommodations at Kripalu are in the main building, Shadowbrook, and our new environmentally green Annex, still just a short walk away from everything.
