Le yoga Kripalu est une forme de Hatha yoga développée dans les années 50 par Amrit Desai (Gurudev)[1], qui a chosi ce nom en hommage à son gourou, Swami Sri Kripalvananda (Bapuji)[2].

Gurudev a fondé en 1966 la Yoga Society of Pennsylvania, qui deviendra plus tard le Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health. La mission du Kripalu Center est d'enseigner « l'art et la science du yoga » pour contribuer au bien-être physique, mental et spirituel des pratiquants et de toute la société[3].

L'apprentissage du yoga Kripalu se fait en trois étapes. Une fois que les pratiquants ont pris conscience de leur corps et de leur respiration, ils apprennent à maintenir plus longtemps les postures (āsanas) pour parvenir enfin au stade de la méditation en mouvement[4].
