On Campus Program

Vinyasa Yoga and Meditation Retreat


Join renowned author and Director of the Kripalu School of Yoga, Rolf Gates, for five-day vinyasa yoga and meditation retreat on Kripalu's beautiful campus in the Berksires.

In this five-day retreat, you will:

  • Participate in periods of meditation, yoga practice, rest, and integration.
  • Spend two days in silence as a way to understand the nature and value of a silent practice.
  • Use the instructions found in the Yoga Sutras and offered by the Buddha to inform your efforts.

This program is suitable for all—while it is not a physically difficult retreat, it is recommended you have some experience both in meditation and in yoga. You will return home with a deeper understanding of the practice and a greater sense of self.

NOTE Participants may choose to spend all five days in silence once initial guidelines have been established.
