50 Years with Kripalu

Celebrating the Path of Love

The foundation of all that we do at Kripalu is inspired by love. As we mark a half-century of service and look to the future, Kripalu holds compassion and connection as core components of our shared well-being. Now, more than ever, the path of love is the way forward. We are honored to continue to expand upon our mission to serve people and communities in realizing their full potential through the transformative wisdom and practice of yoga.

Join us for the celebrations, including online events, community engagement, and opportunities to come together to denote devotion to all that was and is Kripalu.
