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...
(Suggested props: 1-2 blankets or towels and 2 blocks).

Dandasana, Sukhasana, Siddasana, Virasana, Tarasana, Upavishta Konasana: Come have a party on the floor! You will also stand up and flow in this class, but the theme of the day is open claves and long inner thighs and groins to prepare you for a steady seat.

(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.
