Dining at Kripalu

Inspired By Yoga. Made with Love.

Every meal at Kripalu is prepared by people who care deeply about the health of the planet and our bodies.

Quality. We begin with the most nutritious, least processed, freshest foods—local, seasonal, organic, delicious.
Intention. Kripalu foods were meant to be eaten mindfully—each mouthful is to be savored. 
Nourishment. Eating healthy is healing and nourishing for the body, mind, and spirit.
Love. Our food choices affect our relationships with the planet and with our fellow human beings. It’s all love, and it’s all yoga.


Learn more about the Kripalu Kitchen.


The Kripalu Kitchen serves whole grains, fresh vegetables, and legumes as the backbone of the menus, with fresh poultry, fish, and dairy products as optional protein sources. Fresh salad fixings and a selection of delicious salad dressings are always available, as are our famous freshly baked breads. Additionally, the Ayurveda-influenced Basics Bar offers simple preparations of legumes, grains, vegetables, and an assortment of balancing condiments.

All of our meals are served buffet-style and every dish is labeled with a complete ingredient list. While we ask that you be responsible for reading labels to identify any potential food allergens, we want you to know that we have a special awareness around several specific food requests. We work hard to balance our choices to include options for our guests with some of the most common food sensitivities, including gluten, dairy, and nuts.

What We Serve
In addition to a cafeteria-style line that offers all-natural poultry and fish products at some meals, we always offer an exclusively vegetarian line. The lines include soup and an entrée plus grain, bean, and vegetable side dishes. There is also an extensive salad bar with raw vegetable options, cheeses, seeds, and specialty made salads. All of our salad dressings are homemade and most feature extra virgin olive oil.

Gluten Sensitivity
For guests coming who have a sensitivity to gluten, you will be assured to know the steps we take to ensure your dining pleasure; we use only wheat-free tamari (soy sauce), our miso is also gluten-free, all of our herbs are gluten-free, we offer gluten-free hot and cold cereals every morning, and we have a 100% gluten-free area. While our bakery is not a gluten-free bakery, we do offer a gluten-free bread option at all meals.
