While teaching a program at nearby Kripalu, Rodney Yee stayed at Hampton Terrace in one of our king suites, with his wife, Colleen.

Rodney has appeared on Oprah, Good Morning America, and in the PBS special "The Practical Power of Yoga,” as well as many other television broadcasts. He contributes to a variety of yoga and Rodney-Yeehealthy lifestyle publications regularly, including Yoga Journal, Self, Shape, and Fitness, and has been featured in Vogue, Vanity Fair, Glamour, Marie Claire, Elle, O-The Oprah Magazine, New York Magazine, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and USA Today.

This brings us to an important point.   Hampton Terrace is an  option for everyone who attends or teaches programs at Kripalu Institute.

Kripalu is one of the largest and most recognized yoga centers in the world.   They program 12 months a year and do provide housing on-site.

But many of their attendees find that staying in a local inn makes more sense than their two primary options:   

Kripalu RoomsA Kripalu room for a single with a private bath runs from $366 to $422/night.   Double occupancy raises that from $550 to $630/night.  The rooms are simple, consistent with a yoga philosophy, with a low double or queen bed...or two twins.

They also offer a dormitory option, $155 to $180/night, 6 to 22 people in a room with a bath down the hall.

Our private rooms are $175 to $189/night PER ROOM....nothing extra for double occupancy.   Our rooms include breakfast, a fireplace and a Jacuzzi.  Kripalu is located one mile away...a two minute drive.

If you stay off-property, you will pay a daily Kripalu fee of $75 weekdays and $100 weekend.   That includes three meals and all activities.

Still, many people do the math and realize they can stay in better accommodations and save more than 50%....including the daily fee.

Why don't more people do this?   Veterans of Kripalu know about this. The Kripalu brochure and website do not mention it as an obvious option.
