Kula Flow: Twist, Balance, & Ground

Aired -

Rebecca Ketchum

After my first Kula class, I knew I had found my home. I learned more in one hour through solid adjustments, thoughtful words, and intelligent, vigorous sequencing than I had in the past decade of attending yoga...
Suggested props: 1 bolster, 2 blocks

We begin with a long reclined sequence to warm the body and ground our attention. Some challenging and heating standing postures take us through the middle of class. We finish our standing sequences at the wall with a revolved balancing posture. There is plenty of time for winding down before sanasana.

A(Int/Adv) Kula Flow is vinyasa (or flow) style yoga with an emphasis on creativity and alignment. Classes are inventive and thoughtful sequences of sun salutations, standing & seated postures, back bending, and inversions—guided by a steady breath to tone and calm the mind. Most teachers also use bandha work to open and strengthen the inner body. (Classes differ in tone and vigor depending on the teacher, so if you have special needs/interests please contact [email protected]) For students with a regular yoga practice.
