Berkshire County Schools

Supporting Local Community

Nearly 2000 adolescents in Berkshire County, Massachusetts, have been impacted by the Kripalu Yoga in the Schools program since 2008. The KIEL continues to support and engage with these schools, including Pittsfield High School and the Positive Options Program in both Monument Mountain Regional High School and Mount Everett Regional High School. Marianne Young, principal of Monument Mountain in Great Barrington, Massachusetts, says fighting and vandalism at the school have decreased substantially as Kripalu tools have become integrated into the culture.
