Handstands and all other inversions require a lot of specific effort in the arms, upper back, and legs. This class is for those who are not yet able to do a handstand and want to know what other poses they need to work first on to make inverting more accessible, as well as those who are already kicking up but want a little tune-up on the fundamentals.

(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.) Open to beginners as well as those wanting a slower paced vinyasa class or those who wish to reconnect with the fundamentals of alignment and flow style yoga. 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.
