Why Kripalu?

Our Past
As a student in our schools, you are connected to a living lineage and evolving tradition. Kripalu is founded upon the teachings of Swami Kripalu (1913– 1981), an Indian yoga master and spiritual teacher whose name means “compassion.” His warm, heartcentered spirit infuses everything we do. 

Our Present
And while we honor our past, we also look to the future, embracing the knowledge and insights made available by science on the effects and efficacy of yoga, mindfulness, and meditation. We are proud to present a contemporary approach to this ancient quest for truth.

Your Kripalu
When you study at Kripalu, you are immersed in an environment designed for learning, integration, and reflection. Upon your graduation, you immediately join a community full of thousands of graduates, professionals, yoga teachers, Ayurvedic health counselors, mindful outdoor leadership guides, yoga therapy consultants, and others dedicated to living their yoga

We train people who want professional certification in a field they are passionate about—who believe in the healing capacity of the human body and want to bring an integrated approach to their work. Our graduates are known for the depth of their knowledge and the quality of care they bring to what they do.

Creating transformational learning environments has been Kripalu’s specialty for more than 30 years. Through our immersion curricula, you will live, learn, and practice in an environment that supports your fullest potential—and emerge fully certified and ready to bring your unique skills, gifts, and passions into the world.
