The Kripalu Approach to Healthy Weight

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

This program weaves together evidence-based nutritional and medical information with the contemplative practice of mindfulness, helping you shift the concept of dieting, which we know is not sustainable, into a journey toward healthy weight and lifelong wellness. Our signature immersion program is much more than just learning about nutrition, stress reduction, and yogic philosophy—both educational and experiential, it is focused on living and practicing these principles.

In our caring and supportive environment, nourish yourself and invite changes that will continue to unfold long after you return home. Led by our exceptional faculty of doctors, nutritionists, life coaches, and yoga teachers with years of experience helping people find personal empowerment and transformation, this program includes

  • Tips to naturally find your optimal, healthy weight, and ways to maintain it
  • Workshops to develop empowering life skills and a more positive body image
  • Tools and strategies to enhance your nutrition and metabolism for weight management
  • Invigorating, accessible yoga and movement practices, and how to take them home with you
  • Time to relax, rejuvenate, and connect with others.

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.
