Kripalu R&R Retreat

Take time to de-stress. Cultivate inner peace. Reconnect with joy.

Workshop Schedules

Take a personal retreat. With Kripalu’s R&R Retreats, you decide how to spend your days so that you can create exactly the right experience for you. Choose from a variety of workshops, outdoor activities, and yoga and movement classes. (See classes and activities schedule below.) Come for self-care and enjoy gentle yoga classes, introspective workshops, and solo time—including an inspirational labyrinth walk at dusk. Or jump-start your fitness routine and go hiking, learn nutrition tips, take vigorous vinyasa yoga classes, and try tai chi! You can visit the sauna or enjoy a soothing massage.

Many people come alone, while others bring a friend or loved one. Everyone’s experience of Kripalu R&R retreats is as unique as they are. We offer a rich daily schedule that allows you to do just what you want, whether it’s soul-searching, celebrating, or simply remembering who you are when you’re not absorbed by the flurry of family, work, and life. Whatever it is, you’ll return home renewed from the inside out.
