Michael Pulitzer, Jr.

My first experience at Kripalu offered me a deeply relaxing experience, opening me up to possibility. This exploration continues to deepen my sense of community as a Kripalu yoga teacher and board member!

Michael Pulitzer, Jr., retired from the broadcasting business in 2009 and moved to Stockbridge, Massachusetts, where he participated in numerous Kripalu programs and now has completed the 500-Hour Kripalu Yoga Professional Teacher Training.

Prior to his retirement, Michael’s career path placed him at the intersection of entrepreneurship and community service. After graduating from Harvard, he received an MFA from the American Film Institute in Los Angeles and founded their alumni association. In 1978, he joined the family business, Pulitzer Publishing Company, and embarked on a broadcasting career.

Starting in sales, Michael became station manager of an NBC affiliate in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. He was president of the North Carolina Association of Broadcasters, president of the UNC School of Journalism, and chairman of the board for the University of North Carolina’s School of the Arts. Michael and his wife, Ramelle, run New View Tours, leading custom tours for small groups to South America.

He is an active member of the Berkshire Kripalu Community (teaching Yoga), and a member of the Stockbridge Library board, president of the Tri-town Rotary, and on the national advisory committees for Austen Riggs and the Norman Rockwell Museum. In the Berkshires he has brought Kripalu Yoga to men in the prison and the Phoenix House Recovery program and teaches a Gentle Yoga Class in Lenox.
