“Thank you so much for such a nurturing, supportive and loving weekend. I admire and value so deeply that you not only set such a positive example of good self-care, you so deeply practice what you ‘preach’ and that means a lot to me. This was my fifth time to Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health—and I have cherished every time I have visited. Although by far, I have received the most personal value from your self-renewal program/support.” Leslie H.
