The openness and honesty of our group—the feelings of community and non-judgment at Kripalu. The amazing informative impassioned teachers. The opportunity to experience so many things. The healing arts taking my expansion one step further. The yoga and yogadance experience. I felt so alive dancing and so at peace in yoga!
– Adrienne M.

For everyone.

An integrative approach to yoga on and off the mat.

Whether you’re new to yoga or looking to revitalize your practice, this immersion provides you with tools and inspiration to make yoga a regular part of your life. Based on the principles of being present and honoring your individual strengths and limitations, Kripalu Yoga offers increased balance, health, well-being, and transformation.

Cristie Newhart uses an integrated approach designed to expand your understanding of yoga on and off the mat. You learn how to create a yoga flow appropriate to your needs, and how a yogic lifestyle that incorporates meditation, breath awareness, and mindfulness can foster health and vitality. We also practice techniques for stress relief and explore the benefits of meditation and yogic breathing techniques.
