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.

#blackfriday didn’t start so badly! Great day at the #manchesterroadrace @shenipsitstriders #shenipsitstriders #silkcitystriders #teamhorstsports #thanksgiving 🏃🏻 If I always had the option to commute by train 🚂, I would take it. #multitasking 1h45m each way if uninterrupted productivity and NO driving. I even squeezed in a lap of #centralpark with Tim. 🏃🏻#manhattan #newyork Fir @john.meyerle because I neglected to post earlier: @supercross_cup This video is the Cat 4/5 Men. Great start for @the_ccap boys Nick and Johnny. #supercrosscx #teamhorstsports #teamhorstjuniorsquad #horstengineering #crossspikes @horsteng #cyclocross #lifedeathcyclocross Another great day at the @supercross_cup The #teamhorstjuniorsquad did great on the tricky and challenging course that was left muddy by overnight rain. The wind was fierce. The Junior 9-14 year olds did battle with the Category 4/5 Women. #teamhorstsports @vittoriaseries #supercrosscx #supercrosscup #horstengineering @horsteng #crossspikes #cyclocross Good morning from the windy @supercross_cup The overnight wind destroyed many a tent. It’s supposed to get windier. The rain has turned the course to muck. It’s going to be off-camber insanity. Myles Mattern is warming up for the Juniors 9-14 year old Race and showing how it’s done. Second video is the Cat 4/5 Men. Great start for @the_ccap boys Nick and Johnny. #supercrosscx #teamhorstsports #teamhorstjuniorsquad #horstengineering #crossspikes @horsteng #cyclocross #lifedeathcyclocross Suffering in Suffern!! @supercross_cup Day 1 #supercrosscup #supercrosscx #teamhorstsports #crossspikes #horstengineering @horsteng @vittoriaseries #teamhorstjuniorsquad ☔️🚴🏽 Another great day at the @nohocx Day was marginally warmer, but the racing was even more intense. Even the Cub Juniors were throwing down! #teamhorstjuniorsquad #teamhorstsports #crossspikes #horstengineering #cyclocross #lifedeathcyclocross #nohocx @lutzmuseum Children’s #Poetry Night. Little D wrote and recited. A welcome Friday night arts and culture moment before a (cold) weekend full of intense #cyclocross racing! #lutzmuseum 📚 🚲
