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 got my first #cyclocross ride of the year in too! #yogini #yogi #shavasana Sightseeing on my second favorite road in #Connecticut #grassyhill #cycling #bicycle #sevencycles #horstengineering Camp was swell! @thecubscouts @boyscoutsofamerica #cubscouts #boyscouts #junenorcrosswebster I visited the new HQ of the @appalachianmountainclub that is under construction at 10 City Square in #Charlestown I had to ride by the #BunkerHill Monument at the end of the #FreedomTrail #Boston #sevencycles First time at the People's Forest Trail Race since 2011. This first image is the look of a dejected man who lost 25 minutes with a wrong turn on a big descent. That's costly in an 11 kilometer race. Even worse is that @trailrunningmom is the one who led him (and two other runners) off course! They survived. It was a nice day on the #FarmingtonRiver. #trailrunning #teamhorstsports #shenipsitstriders πŸƒπŸ»β›°πŸ†
