Forward Folds are a tricky family of yoga postures, and there are a lot of ways in which things can go haywire. In class, we unpack a couple common misunderstandings about these poses; in particular, we learn that we do not start forward folding by trying to drop our nose to our knee, or our belly onto our thigh.

(Basic/Int) Get in the Kula Flow! Kula style yoga is a deep, challenging practice that will make you stronger and more flexible on the outside and softer (and more flexible) on the inside. You are never too tight, too tall or too weak to begin. (There’s nothing we can do if you’re too much of a procrastinator to get here.)

Though we like to emphasize that these are not so much yoga basics classes (there are plenty of those around the city), as basic Kula style classes.
