Welcome to Thrive, the Kripalu blog! We chose the name Thrive since it’s a cornerstone of the Kripalu mission: empowering people and communities to realize their full potential through the transformative wisdom and practice of yoga. It also evokes a sense of awakening, transformation, and renewal—concepts at the heart of the Kripalu approach.

For this blog, we’ve enlisted members of Kripalu faculty and our larger community to share their views on matters related to yoga, health, wellness, and conscious living. You’ll find insights on these core themes, as well as opinions and advice on wide-ranging topics, including relationships, happiness, creativity, and spirituality. Our aim is to educate and inspire, but this is also a place for you to share reflections, ask questions, and connect.

We welcome your engagement and look forward to hearing stories, comments, and pertinent experiences you wish to share. That said, we do make reasonable efforts to monitor participation to ensure that comments and visitors stay on topic and are courteous, and not inflammatory. Feel free to read our Terms of Use for our guidelines. Please remember that information posted on any of our social media platforms shouldn’t be considered medical advice and shouldn’t replace a consultation with a health-care professional.

We hope this forum helps you maximize your health, connect to the Kripalu mission, and discover ways to live your life to the fullest. Check back daily for stories, share your inspiration, and find to new ways to thrive in your life.
