Full Bio & Programs
If you enjoy yoga and outdoor winter sports, you’ll love this program. The miles of trails surrounding Kripalu offer exquisite vistas, snow-covered forests, and the opportunity to explore the beauty of winter in a leisurely way—on snowshoes.
Snowshoeing, a gentler form of aerobic exercise than cross-country skiing, provides the traction you need to get to places you can’t reach by simply hiking in the snow. Practicing yoga before your walks supports ease of movement, and afterward it promotes rest and relaxation. Guided meditations enhance your receptivity to the beauty and wisdom of nature.
Note Equipment can be rented from the Arcadian Shop near Kripalu; call 413.637.3010 at least 10 days in advance to secure your snowshoes. Additional information regarding what to bring, rentals, and alternative plans in case of insufficient snow can be found here.
