January is a busy month at Kripalu, with programs for the body and the mind scheduled throughout the month. January 11 though 13, “Pilgrim On The Path of Love” is a celebration of the hundredth birthday of Swami Kripalu, the founder of their center’s teachings. The weekend will include a variety of workshops in yoga, lectures, and kirtan sessions. A potpourri of current and founding teachers will lead you on a journey to connect Kripalu’s present to its past.

January 21-25 it’s Digestive Health: A Holistic Approach, with instructors Kathie Madonna Swift, Annie B. Kay, and the Healthy Living Faculty (it also reprises in April). According to the course web page:

“This innovative Kripalu program helps you address your GI challenges and restore your health. Come learn the connection between GI health, immune imbalance, inflammation, and common symptoms, such as pain, depression, fatigue, and rashes that often have their origins in the gut.”

January 25-27, The Great Work Of Your Life: The Yoga Of the Bhagavad Gita will lead you to “…explore karma yoga, the yoga of action, learning to act in the world in such a way that God becomes “the Doer” of our deeds. Each day will include at least an hour and a half of asana practice in addition to lecture, discussion, and other exercises aimed at allowing us to experience how life itself is a profound spiritual practice.”
