Nikki Vilella

👋 I am Nikki Vilella

After moving to Tribeca eighteen 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 and opened Kula Williamsburg (alongside my partner in crime Schuyler Grant) in 2010 in order to spread the Kula love throughout my home borough of Brooklyn. Kula Soho is our attempt at an oasis between its two older sisters. I am at the helm of the 200 hour Kula Flow Foundations teacher training program, teach at our stateside 75 hour advanced TT and lead the same 75 hour format each summer in Portugal. I have written for Yoga Journal and was named one of America's top 100 influential teachers. As a teacher, I strive to include the perfect alchemy of precise physical instruction, intelligence, intention and space into my classes. My passion for anatomy and sequencing are clear in my teaching. As a teacher trainer, I want to unpack the mystery of putting together an inspired vinyasa sequence so that you can step away from the stress of "following a methodology", cultivate your authentic voice and enjoy your job! The respect that I have for all of my teachers who have walked this path before me runs deep.
