It is personal. It is political.

It starts with you. It starts within.

Creating a world of equality, justice, and peace requires both outer and inner work, learning, and commitment. This November join 300 other women for a week of solidarity and community as we recognize and remember that the most needed revolution is within. Together we honor the crossroads of yoga and activism, cultivating inner resources and offering an antidote to anxiety and despair—through and beyond a divided society and disruptive political times—into the deeper realms of dharma, compassion, and social justice.

JOIN US!

This is a weeklong women and female-identified only experience and no other programming, including Kripalu R&R, will take place during the week. Participants interested in The Revolution Within: Women's Week @ Kripalu can register via the Kripalu website beginning in June 2019. Tuition for this program is $595.00 per person, and by signing up for the waitlist, guests will receive an early bird tuition of $495.00 per person.

Get on the waitlist today and we’ll notify you when registration opens.
