Retreats

An Inside Look at The New Kripalu

What do you know about the Kripalu Center? That it's in the Berkshires? You're right. That, like, everyone hosts yoga retreats there? Right again. That the whole experience is vintage 70s vegetarian patchouli bunkhouse? Well, not so much anymore. The Washington Post sent a reporter up for the weekend to check out the Kripalu Center's new "Annex" building and to see whether Kripalu could appeal to modern yogis without losing its soul. The reporter's take: Good work, Kripalu.

Now you get your own bathroom, there's free wireless, and the food was " uniformly delicious." Plus they've stopped judging you for drinking caffeine and you can now get coffee right there on campus without having to skulk into town. That said, the old building where most classes take place was still "stuffy and the motel carpet reeked of sweat." Kind of gross. But the reporter wasn't too put off given the fresh air and wild flowers right outside the door...
