About Healthy Living

Interested in learning the latest information on wellness? Seeking ways to improve your health through nutrition, stress management, and yoga? Kripalu’s Healthy Living Programs are for you.

Kripalu Healthy Living programs offer you a holistic approach to health.

This means we focus not only on the health of the body, but also on the mind and heart, helping you discover a new level of wellness and vitality. Research shows that lifestyle change is one of the most successful ways to stop and even reverse many chronic diseases. Focusing on nutrition, stress management, mindful living, and physical activity our programs give you the tools and support necessary to transform your health and create lasting positive change. Through experiential workshops, health talks, group discussions, and outdoor activities our exceptional faculty teach you how to create a healthy lifestyle by guiding you into one.

We need a Kripalu in every corner of America because it’s the best place I know to learn self-care, good nutrition, movement, relaxation, and healthy living. And besides that, it’s fun being there! Many of my patients would do better spending more time at Kripalu and less time in my medical office.
—Bill Manahan, MD, assistant professor emeritus, University of Minnesota Academic Health Center
