Yoga impacts both body and mind.
Research suggests that self-regulation of thoughts, feelings, and behaviors is the primary benefit of the comprehensive practice of yoga.

I've been to Kripalu twice- both times for R&R weekend retreats. What I like the most about Kripalu is the beautiful setting, the kind people and the incredibly delicious food. While there, I practiced yoga, took long hikes and went on a guided kayaking tour. There are so many lovely little places to tuck yourself away here, whether for quiet reading, meditation or just to relax. I highly recommend Kripalu and can't wait to go back!

Great place to relax and get away from the real world. Yes it is NY corporate meets Eastern spiritualism but that's what I wanted! Upscale hotel with eastern calm. Great place to learn and experience yoga. Staff was very helpful. The whirlpool is a must (though co-ed would be better). Go and enjoy it for what it is.

I don't think Kripalu is great and I think the negative review could have been written much better to explain the writer's point, but I have to agree with him in principle.

Having visited Kripalu many times (and Omega which I DO not compare favorably to Kripalu - I think this is a wonderful place to remove oneself from the daily stress and anxieties. It's rustic and not 5 star nor should it be. Go to Canyon Ranch if you want a spa but come to Kripalu to find whatever you need to be renewed at more than just a surface level.

We both got massages. My wife had an aromatherapy massage, which she felt was excellent. I had neuromuscular massage which was also excellent. However, the healing arts center felt tense, as the therapists rushed in and out of the waiting area. Not a very relaxing atmosphere. We ate dinner there. Food was abundant, with lots of variety. I might feel differently about the atmosphere if I were staying at Kripalu. We were just day-hops.

Kripalu Kripalu I so wanted to like you. My friends all raved about you. But they did warn me "It's changed some. But I'm sure you will still love it." My friend is an ex administrator who told me all about the "changes". Nope. This place is what happens when East Coast Yuppies try to be weekend hippes. "Don't I look so good in this spandex? Don't I look so blissful right now? I'm so spiritual, can't you just tell? Where's my Starbucks?" This place had so much potential and is now led by a clueless bunch of idiots. Think what would happen if New Age went Corporate. They hire people with no spiritual practice other than basically being able to say "Well yeah I believe in God just like you. I go to church on Easter." I had numerous poor encounters with staff who were both dis-interested in helping, had no idea what the word seva means, run around trying to look stylish and could care less about helping you. Had to interrupt 3 conversations to get my needs met and got stared down at plenty. Don't even get me started about the b*tchy lunch lady. Did you guys place an ad for an ex-school cafeteria worker with chronic constipation? And do you think cleaning and staff hygiene could be improved a little? If you want my opinion of this place, and since you made it this far I guess you might....Neitzche declared "God is dead". Kripalu killed Him and those idiots at Harvard are doing the post-mortem. Imagine the Ivy League here: "But as an academic I'm very soulful. We just need to study it a little bit more before we can fully commit to saying anything." If you have a real mystical bone in your body, skip Krip.

THERE ARE BETTER PLACES TO RECHARGE. When you think about Kripalu, here's the thing you have to keep in mind -- EVERYTHING they offer in the way of programs can be done elsewhere, at places like the Omega Institute. So, any accurate review of Kripalu MUST be based on the place itself, and not the workshops. In addition to Kripalu, I've been to workshops at Esalen, Omega, the Open Center in NYC, and the Rowe Conference Center. Kripalu is the ONLY place I wouldn't go back to. Here's why. FIRST, they charge WAY too much for a private room. The rooms are very sparse and bare, little more than an antiseptic place to crash, and yet they charge more than some decent Manhattan hotels. SECOND, some of the rooms are simply unacceptable. My first night, I was in a 3rd floor room on the west wing of the building, and couldn't sleep because of the noise from an air-conditioning unit on their new "annex." And the mattress in that room was hard and cheap ... I've seen better in a Motel 6. ... THIRD, ignore the people who rave about the "gorgeous facilities" and "pristine grounds." Compared to other retreat centers, it's sterile, institutional, and very much "disconnected" from the outdoors. The building is a 1950s era brick and concrete block institution built by a bunch of Jesuits, and there's only so much you can do. And yes there are hiking paths and a lake, but you have to walk much too far to get there. ... FOURTH, the food is pretty good, but it's nothing worth raving about. I make better meals at home. For instance, my vegan zucchini and basil soup runs RINGS around the vegan asparagus soup they served while I was there. ... FINALLY, despite the talk about "open-mindedness" and all that, the truth is that the folks who run Kripalu and petty and patronizing in some ways. They're happy to serve guests orange juice -- which is really little more than SUGAR WATER -- and yet they refuse to serve coffee at breakfast. If you want coffee, you have to pay extra in the cafe downstairs -- and they charge more than Starbucks! ... THAT'S RIGHT -- For a private room you'll spend at least $230 a night, and they make you pay an extra $2.70 for a large cup of coffee.... GIVEN ALL THAT ... If the program you're interested in is offered at Omega or somewhere other than Kripalu, why on earth would you want to go to Kripalu?
