The Kripalu Approach to Ayurveda A Self-Care Retreat


Defining self-care is a unique and personal experience. Ayurveda—a system based on natural healing through strengthening the body, mind, and spirit—provides ancient wisdom and thousands of years of practice to access the truth of who you are.

Taking care of yourself with an Ayurvedic mindset includes daily practices to soothe the nervous system, cleanse the senses, and tend the digestive fire. Taking care of yourself is developing a continued awareness of your daily habits, what is getting in the way of thriving, and taking deep rest in a world that is restless. Small changes made over long periods of time create a lasting impact.

Proper sleep, use of energy, and eating are the three pillars of maintaining health. In lively discussions, experiential sessions, and personal reflections, you will explore

  • What we eat, how to eat it, when, and why
  • Sleep routines designed to boost energy
  • Self-massage and oil practices to help encourage self-love
  • The benefits and tools to create an awareness practice.

Whether you are seasoned in the practices of Ayurveda and want to spend time in the community on retreat or are new to Ayurveda, there is a seat for you in this circle. Slow down and find out what the wisdom of your heart is whispering to you.

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