Kripalu Outdoors Nature Connection, Hiking, and Yoga

EXPLORE THE BEAUTIFUL KRIPALU CAMPUS

The woods, fields, and streams of Berkshire County have long been heralded for their enchanting beauty and ability to refresh the mind, body, and spirit. 

Join Kripalu School of Mindful Outdoor Leadership faculty for a mindful outdoor retreat in which you are invited to slow down, enjoy meditative hikes outdoors, and develop an intimate relationship with trees, stones, the great elements, and our friends in the more-than-human world. Let yourself be guided on soothing forest therapy walks among majestic Eastern Hemlock and White Pine trees. Relax into nature meditations next to peaceful lakes and gently flowing streams. Practice yoga and awaken your senses to the magic and wonder of summer in the Berkshire hills.

Log off the world wide web and log onto “the wood wide web” as you:

  • Participate in our unique Kripalu Mindful Outdoor Experience methodology.
  • Explore mindfulness as a doorway to deeper connection with the natural world.
  • Relax into the present moment, meditate, and experience time with the earth. 
  • Connect with community who share an interest in nature and mindfulness.

Return home with simple tools for continuing your practice of nature connection and mindfulness. 

NOTE This is not a vigorous hiking program, and most sessions will be outdoors. Please plan to dress in layers, bring a hat, waterproof shell, sturdy hiking shoes, and a day pack with a water bottle and journal.
