After moving to Tribeca over two decades ago, I stumbled upon a premie Kula on the way to the train. I went, was hands down hooked by the first hip opener, and the rest is history. I started teaching at Kula in 2...

Kula Mentorship (in person)


at Kula Yoga Project (SoHo) (481 Broadway, 3rd floor
(Grand & Broome) Manhattan, NY 10013)

There is a sticky spot between finishing a training (or multiple trainings!) – and actually feeling confident in your teaching.  So much information to process. So many questions left unanswered. So many insecurities left to hash through. So hard to teach without community support! Graduates of our foundational and advanced training programs have long asked for a mentorship program with a Kula twist. We are finally delivering!

Our goal with this program is to help students integrate the principles of Kula sequencing, while finding the special sauce that makes them a unique teacher.

We will gather to practice, workshop and share. In between group meetings you will commit to practicing a minimum of 4 days per week (virtually or in person), complete homework assignments, and work on your own teaching with feedback from your fellow mentees and mentors. 

Subjects covered will include alignment, sequencing methodology, pranayama, vocal habits, the business of teaching yoga, hands on assists and more. You will assist 4 Kula classes in either SoHo or Williamsburg, and in the last week of the program you will also receive an hour long one on one session with the mentor of your choice. 

Essentially you will both be working on your teaching skills and continuing to fill your cup with inspiration and challenging practice. Kula style.

Program includes:
9 Group Meetings
50% off unlimited in-person classes for the length of the mentorship*
1 hour long private Q&A / feedback session with your mentor of choice

*How to activate the pass? The (optional) 50% off pass is good for in person and online classes. It is a one-time purchase, a 3 month unlimited for $250. The link to buy the pass will be sent to you upon completing your payment and registration for the mentorship program. You can purchase and activate the pass on whatever date you choose. It will begin on the date of PURCHASE so please keep that in mind. You can activate it as soon as you sign up for the mentorship, or sign up for the mentorship and activate the pass the week the mentorship program begins. Up to you :)
