A Sampling of Upcoming Programs

Led by and/or for the LBGTQIA community, online or on campus



Once a slur, "queer" has been reclaimed by the LGBTQIA+ movement and is now used to describe a limitless number of sexual orientations and gender identities. Only you can define yours. This is a free online gathering with Yuval Samburski to share queer struggles and triumphs.



This signature self-discovery program with Aruni Nan Futuronsky is a journey into living yoga. Experiment with Kripalu’s core teaching—the mindful practice of being present. This on campus program asks, "How do I block myself from being fully alive? How can I live in the now rather than in the story of yesterday?"



From Broken Hearts to Spiritual Warriors 

Join international influencer and activist Lama Rod, and learn how we can collectively shape the future if we have the willingness to let our hearts break open. Through meditation, breathwork, visualizations, and more, you’ll explore new ways to be of service to the collective well-being.

"In these times of global uncertainty, Kripalu provides us with a safe space to come back to self, to connect with source to reclaim our strength." — R&R Guest
