Kripalu Center Group Trip

OM away from home….

Come with me to the Kripalu Center!
Friday Sept. 27 - Sunday Sept 29

I'm so excited to return to my yoga roots and share my favorite place of retreat and soul nourishment with my students. This is a great opportunity to step off the merry-go-round of life for a weekend, to focus on you & your self-care, to deepen your knowledge of yoga philosophy and inspire your yoga and meditation practice. 
Here's how it works~
You choose a weekend program or self directed R&R, choose your accommodations - from dorm rooms to standard to premier. You must call to register and tell them that you're in my group. If we get 5 or more in the group we all get 20% off accommodations. 
There are some great programs offered that weekend and they tend to fill up quickly, so don't wait to register.

Registration Details

Anyone who wishes to join the group can do so by calling Kripalu Registration at 800-741-7353, PRESS 1 and they can speak with anyone here. Please have them supply their registration advisor with the following:

(1)   First the program or RR desired along with the dates of stay

(2)   Then the accommodation type desired

(3)   Once the previous information is given, they should mention they want to be part of the “(Marie Marchand) KYAA Group” (to receive

        the discount, if applicable, and be housed together)

(4)   Finally, credit card information to confirm the registration.

A 50% deposit on the stay is due at the time of registration. The KYAA group discount* of 20% off housing (if earned) is applied to each registration approximately one week prior to arrival and the balance is then charged automatically to the credit card. To apply the group discount, we need to have all the names at least 7 days in advance of your arrival. Group members are not able to be added less than 7 days prior to arrival.

Group members can enroll in different programs from one another.

Those from the same group who select dormitory accommodations will be placed in the same women's or men’s dorm together whenever possible. We are unable to guarantee your group will be the only ones in the dormitory. You should expect for there to be other guests sharing the dorms with your group members. We are unable to guarantee that last minute registrations will be housed with the rest of the group.

Anyone booking a shared room for two will be paired with someone of the same gender. If you would like to share a room for two with a specific person, please supply the Registration Advisor with that person's name prior to arrival. Please note: giving the name of the person you’d like to room with does not hold the space for that person. They need to make their own registration.

* Each group member will receive a discount of 20% off any accommodation.

The group discount is not transferable to any other person or set of dates and cannot be combined with any other discount. Discount is not applicable for the Kripalu School of Ayurveda trainings, 750-hour yoga teacher training modules, mid-week Healthy Living programs (such as the Fitness and Yoga Retreat, Yoga for Life, or the Integrative Weight Loss), children’s registrations, on-line learning programs, commuter registrations, or one-night stays and cannot be combined with other discounts. Registrations must be made at the beginning of all applicable professional training programs. No group may register after Part 1 of any sequential training program. Other restrictions may apply.

Confirmation letters mailed out right after registrations are made will not reflect the group discount, but the balance that is charged to your credit card in the week prior to your arrival will.

If someone intends to change their room type at a later date after making their original booking, the room rates are subject to change at any time, and we will be charging the current rate at that time.

Kripalu’s standard cancellation policy applies
