Kripalu Faculty

Compassion. Self-care. Yoga on and off the mat.

For 49 years, Kripalu has been a leader in yoga- and mindfulness-based education. More than just poses on a mat, we believe yoga is an accessible practice that inspires connection, compassion, and joy. Our faculty bring care, insight, and passion developed from decades of experience to every Kripalu Signature program. From Kripalu Yoga teachers to Mindful Outdoor Leadership guides, our work is grounded in the Kripalu distinctive methodology, the wisdom tradition of yoga, as taught by Swami Kripalu, whose very name means compassion.

And compassion is where our approach begins. Offering kindness to ourselves and to others sets the stage for compassionate self-care. We invite you to show up just as you are, open to the many possibilities of yoga—a remarkable and practical way of finding your center and the compassion to create change for a better, more peaceful world.
