The Kripalu Approach to Healthy Weight


This summer, join Aruni Nan Futuronsky, Kripalu’s Legacy Faculty member, and special guests Lisa B. Nelson, Director of Medical Education, and Lauren Gernady, Faculty in the Kripalu School of Ayurveda, for a program designed to shift the concept of dieting into a journey toward healthy weight and lifelong wellness. 

Designed with evidence-based medical information, Ayurvedic wisdom, and the contemplative practice of mindfulness and radical self-acceptance, this online program helps guide you from dieting—which we know is not sustainable—toward your long-term wellness journey. This journey is more than just learning about what we eat. Both educational and experiential, it integrates yogic philosophy, tools for stress reduction, and is focused on living and practicing these principles.

In a caring and supportive virtual environment, nourish yourself and invite changes that will continue to unfold long after you return home. This program includes

  • Tips to naturally find your optimal, healthy weight, and ways to maintain it 
  • Exercises to develop empowering life skills and a more positive body image 
  • Tools and strategies to enhance your metabolism for weight management 
  • Accessible yoga and movement practices.

Discover how to shift into a balanced relationship with your body and sustain the lifestyle changes that will ensure maximum energy and vitality for years to come.
