On Campus Program

The Essential Kripalu Retreat

"Kripalu is a more than a place. It’s a feeling that stays with you long after you’ve returned home."

Our guests constantly tell us that there is something special that happens on the Kripalu campus, and they feel it the moment they arrive—a positive energy, a nurturing feeling, a sense of connection and exploration. That special something is no accident. It is rooted in the wisdom tradition of yoga, as taught by Swami Kripalu, whose very name means compassion. Compassion is where our approach begins. Offering kindness to ourselves and to others sets the stage for compassionate self-care.

Come join the Kripalu community in our signature program. Explore what is essential in life by immersing yourself in a caring environment that supports your personal transformation. In a supportive community and beautiful space, you'll join others as you explore

  • Kripalu Yoga, both on and off the mat
  • Meditation and mindfulness practices
  • Nature connection
  • Simple, everyday self-care routines.

Take a break from your day-to-day routines and find compassion through simple and empowering practices.

This program—developed and led by our own faculty with the Kripalu methodology in mind—is offered exclusively at Kripalu.
