“It is time. The summer overwhelmed us. Lay your shadows on the sundials and let the winds whip through the fields.” - Rainer Maria Rilke

Summer is ending and most of us are settling back into some sort of routine, whether it’s getting the kids back to school or getting ourselves back to the office or whatever other reality may come this Fall.

(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.
