Kula Hour: The Moment After (You Weight Your Arms & Legs)

Aired -

Nikki Vilella

After moving to Tribeca twenty years 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 2005 ...
(Suggested props: 2 blocks, 2 blankets, 2 straps. If you have a sandbag grab it, if not don't worry about it. If you have NO props you can still do this class no problem. And if you happen to have ankle weights get them out and you don't need the straps and blankets).

This class will challenge your limbs in space with additional weight added to your arms and legs. The reward comes in the untethered blissful moments of repose, when you feel light and buoyant. The shapes will open the shoulders, prepare you for binds, work toward forearm stand and backbends (with a chance to do a supported dwi pada viparita dandasana if you choose!)

(Int) We used to think that an hour was way too short for a yoga class, and then we discovered the Kula Hour: A 65 minute straight up shot of all the good stuff. (Of course a Kula hour lasts just a little longer than a NYC hour.) For 60 minutes we have at it, Kula style. 5 minutes of blissful rest follow.
