Coronavirus Updates

Updates from Kripalu Guest Services

Last Updated: March 31, 2020 at 2:55 pm EST

We have been monitoring the news of coronavirus (COVID-19) carefully. Hearing the World Health Organization announcement of a global pandemic and Massachusetts issuing a state of emergency has caused us to take pause and reflect on how we want to handle this situation proactively. 

While we have taken many precautions and thankfully have not yet identified the virus within our community (i.e., on campus), we feel it is our dharma to provide a safe and healthy learning environment for everyone we invite into our home.

We are temporarily closing.

  • It is in honoring our mission to hold the health and well-being of everyone that we have decided to close our retreat center campus in Stockbridge, MA starting March 13 and remain closed until further notice.

We are still here for you.

  • Our practices and teachings are needed more now than ever. Though our campus will be closed, we will still be accessible and leaning into our values: Presence, Inquiry, Compassion, Integrity, Practice, and Service.
  • Please visit our blog for content on how to build resilience during times of high vigilance, grounding meditation videos, and more.
  • Tune into our social platforms for daily reminders of well-being and equanimity—follow us on Facebook and Instagram for your dose of Kripalu love.
  • Stay informed via email, where we will give you periodic updates and inform you of any program changes.
  • Look forward to summer with us. Seasons are changing, and with that, so are our upcoming programs; click here to see what we’re excited about.

We realize that this is a difficult and unpredictable time, one that calls for all hearts on deck. While this wasn’t an easy decision to make, it was the only decision that prioritized you, our guests, our staff and our community. Your well-being is of utmost importance to us.

We will continuously evaluate and monitor the situation, and share pertinent information with our community as it becomes available. Feel free to check this page regularly for updates.
