COMPASSION IN ACTION

At Kripalu, as part of our mission of service, we feel a responsibility to provide guidance from discomfort to action through Yoga’s ancient wisdom. It is also a way of being true to the philosophy’s intent and to the values that originated from South Asia centuries ago to help create a better, more peaceful world. 

This is a time for change. This is our opportunity. This is Yoga.
