Full Bio & Programs
For all levels.
Join outdoor guide Greg DiLisio for a retreat filled with adventure, rejuvenation, and relaxation. Each day begins with the practice of qigong to cultivate energy, so you can move with poise, confidence, power, and grace. You then either hike or, if nature bestows snow upon the Berkshires, snowshoe and cross-country ski (Greg teaches you how if you’re a beginner).
Immersed in nature, you find quiet moments by grand old trees or under a panoramic sky. Afternoons include gentle yoga and relaxation back at Kripalu.
This program is for all levels, so beginners and intermediate outdoor adventurers can enjoy the same trip. Greg’s expert combination of adventure sport and restorative practices allows you to return home invigorated and renewed.
Note If there is snow in the Berkshires, rental equipment is available for an additional fee from the Arcadian Shop in Lenox, Massachusetts. Call 413.637.3010 in advance to secure your size, and mention the Kripalu program. Additional information and a list of what to bring can be found here.
