Recover from the holidays and beat the winter blues by taking some time just for yourself. During this, the 17th annual Kripalu Yoga retreat, you will have an opportunity to slow down, take a deep breath and allow yourself to “just be”…

  • Fully alive in each and every moment
  • Grounded in the present yet open to a world of new possibilities
  • Confident, relaxed, feeling whole

Kripalu Yoga is much more than a physical discipline. Kripalu Yoga is a practice of transformation – a way to open the heart and develop compassion, find clarity and experience stillness within. We emphasize listening to the body’s needs and respecting its limits. This approach allows each of us, beginner or experienced practitioner, to receive the benefits of the practice just where we are.

As a group we will welcome each new day during your yoga vacation with a specially designed morning Kripalu yoga class. We’ll learn more about yoga and meditation during the daily experiential workshops, practice yogic breathing to move energy in the body, sit together in meditation to develop inner peace and practice guided iRest yoga nidra. In the sacred space we create together during this yoga retreat you can allow your spirit to slowly awaken and reconnect with the simple joy of being fully alive.

There will be plenty of time to receive treatments at the wellness center, lounge by the pool, soak in the hot tub under the stars, take in the spectacular views, meet new friends in the dining room, and enjoy the many optional eco-adventure tours which are available at Pura Vida Spa. And you will return home feeling truly refreshed and re-charged.
