52 Weekend Getaways: Stockbridge, MA

Stretch & soothe.

| Boston Magazine |

When the brain and body go on the fritz, a yoga retreat can get the kinks out on both fronts. Kripalu resort in the Berkshires targets mind and muscle with weekend programs that range from meditative tai chi and new-age offerings like “The Magic of Animal Communication” to macrobiotic meals taken silently in the dining room. (Yes, really: There’s no talking allowed, but chatterboxes can eat their meals in an alternative area.) 57 Interlaken Rd., Stockbridge, 800-741-7353, kripalu.org.
