Kripalu Center For Yoga and Health (Neighbors with Tanglewood)

Two weekends ago, I visited Debbie at Kripalu. She was in Lenox, Massachusetts for the Kripalu Yoga Teachers Assocation annual conference. She has been a certified teacher since taking their 200 hour course eight years ago. Since then, I’ve watched Kripalu grow a lot. It has been a remarkable transformation. Kripalu has morphed from a yoga specific organization to one that offers more mainstream health education in a variety of disciplines with a special focus on yoga. Kripalu recently completed a major physical expansion and capital improvement project. They have stepped up their marketing. They even began serving meat in the cafeteria! That one caught me by surprise, as it did Debbie when she chose the wrong line at the KYTA conference. Vegetarianism is still important at Kripalu, but it isn’t as strict as it used to be.

Nice grounds at Kripalu.

Kripalu’s setting in Lenox is just stunning. The campus was originally a turn of the century estate. It became a Jesuit retreat. Then it was abandoned and became dilapidated. Then it became Kripalu. The views of the Berkshire Mountains and Lake Mahkeenac (Stockbridge Bowl) are awesome. Kripalu is a really nice place to study yoga and meditate. It is also one heck of an enterprise that I’m curious to learn more about.

Nice view from Kripalu.

I visited Debbie because we had the good fortune to catch the Boston Pops & James Taylor at Tanglewood with a group of friends. Tanglewood shares the same Berkshires magical setting. It is across the street from Kripalu and is the summer home of the Boston Symph0ny Orchestra. Tanglewood has an amazing musical heritage. It was nice to walk from Kripalu to Tanglewood and back again.

I never post about food. However, this is the second time this week that I’m posting about food. These #vegan dishes at Empress by @theprivegroup were awesome. #instavegan #singapore Everything worked out fine for @trailrunningmom After a little stress, they had her race packet and bib number at the @metasprintseries venue and she kept it upright on the bike! 🚴🏽 She was very pleased with 2nd place 🏆 in her age group at her first road #Duathlon.🏃🏻There are no mountains ⛰ and there isn’t much singletrack in #singapore but it’s still a great city for endurance sports. It looked like there were more than 1,500 athletes at the 3K/18K/3K race with LOTS of kids too. Great vibe! #triathlonsg #teamhorstsports 🇺🇸 Our kids may recognize this great Shoppes @marinabaysands feature from six years ago. I had forgotten how cool it was. #singapore #marinabaysands First time on a road bike for @trailrunningmom In advance of her first ever road duathlon @metasprintseries I taught her some tips & tricks including the do's/don'ts of shifting strategy, cornering, blocking (not), drafting (not), passing, flying mount/dismount, etc. It was fun! Even though she was on a "rental" too, I couldn't keep up on my "steed." #triathlonsg #singapore #teamhorstsports @thecheryltan #cheryltan #singapore #singapore Name those tunes. 11-year-old Feng E is making a name for himself in Asia and beyond. #guitar #fenge #singapore 🎸 @trailrunningmom led #yoga at #ypoedge #singapore 

@ypoglobal #yogini Tremendous #vegan dinner @metasingapore Without a heads up, Chef Sun and his team whipped up an amazing seven course + three “snacks” meal for @trailrunningmom and me, that was worthy of their @michelinguide star. We sat at the counter and watched every step in the process. Chef said that with advanced notice (of our diet), he “would have done better.” We appreciated his perfectionism, but it was just fine. #metarestaurant #instavegan #michelinguide #singapore
