Health and Wellness
Healthy communities, higher standards. The Berkshires are home to one of the most recognized and awarded healthcare systems in the country – Berkshire Health Systems, delivering the kind of advanced healthcare most commonly found in large metropolitan centers.
Plus, the entire region offers opportunities for a fit and active lifestyle. A network of hiking, biking and skiing trails is steadily expanding. Gyms, yoga studios, coaches, and community centers that support balanced living abound, and farm-to-table is more than a catchphrase – it’s a way of life.
Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health was recently named one of the top eight yoga retreats in the U.S. by HuffPost Travel, which dubbed it “The retreat center to end all retreat centers.”
The Berkshire Medical Center Cancer Center ranks among the top 1% in the nation and was the first member of the Dana-Farber/Brigham and Women’s Cancer Care Collaborative.
Fun Fact: The Berkshires is home to one of the first Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) programs at Indian Line Farm. CSAs continue to abound in the Berkshires. Real food and real people. Maybe it is the time for you to consider joining our community.
