There are many wonderful resources to support and deepen your knowledge and practice of Yoga. Here are some that we want to share with you.
Located in the Berkshires of western Massachusetts, Kripalu Center is an institution where people can come to discover what it means to be fully human and fully alive through a nonsectarian and non dogmatic approach to yoga. We are dedicated to the honest and unfettered inquiry into, and pursuit of, all philosophies, techniques, and approaches that produce thriving in the individual, the family, the institution, the business, the community, the society, and the planet—all at the same time. Kripalu’s mission is to promote the art and science of yoga as a foundation for a revitalized society.
Many people consider Kripalu to be their spiritual home. Once you go, I think you’ll know why. Set high up on a hill overlooking a beautiful lake, surrounded by at least 11 mountains, the grounds offer walking, hiking, a zen garden and a labyrinth for meditation, and much more. The building features include spacious views, quiet places for reading and visiting with friends, wonderful food, whirlpool and sauna, and an amazing bookstore. Treat yourself to Kripalu body work or an ayurvedic treatment.
Whether you go for a weekend of R&R or a world class program or yoga teacher training, you will feel inspired, listened to and nurtured – body, mind and spirit.
