Last day…best day….at Kripalu!

Today is my last full day at Kripalu.  It turned out to be the BEST day!  In all my years of coming to Kripalu, it has been common that on the last day the entire experience jells and some kind of epiphany occurs.  I think the older I get, the more profoundly that happens.  I realize I am not sharing literal nutrition/food information in this blog; but you know that  I believe there is more to nourishment than food.  In fact, I believe that feeding the spirit is a necessary element to prepare your body to truly “take in” the food you eat and use it to your benefit.  So….today at Kripalu…..  The day began with a just-what-my-body-needed yoga class with Vandita.  Then on to a silent breakfast in the dining hall to get the day off to a meditative start.  Class from 8:30 to 11:30….where we explored building strength and flexibility.  We also ventured outside to walk the labyrinth.  Lunch was a feast of several kinds of fresh pizza and a Caeser salad…..and a WONDERFUL long talk with Teri 🙂  Class from 1:45 to 3:45….where we worked on balancing poses…..Sun Salutation….and ended with Yoga Nidra (yogic sleep).  No, we are not supposed to fall asleep 🙂   Dinner is described on Facebook….a yummy meal of Portobella mushrooms, steak fries, and whole-grain bread!  Teri and I took a walk down to the lake, waded in the water, and took in the beauty that is the Berkshires.  And here I am, in the café at 9 PM sharing my beautiful day.  I am fed and my cup runneth over.  Blessings to all!
