COMMUNITY OF THE HEART

Kula Yoga & Barre offers a variety of classes from the athletic to restful. 

Our hope is here you find what works for you. Move your body in a way that makes you feel good. Yoga is not “one size fits all”. It doesn't matter if you can't touch your toes, or maybe you feel like you can't sit still. You are welcome and accepted here.

We are all meeting on the mat together to find a sense of wholeness, even if it’s for a few brief minutes.

BLISSFUL CANDLELIGHT FLOW

A beautifully balanced practice to both uplift and ground you - a relaxing and calming class, to prepare for a deep, restful sleep. A yin and yang practice by candle light to set the atmosphere for a blissful practice. We teach an alignment-based 'Vinyasa Flow' practice, culminating in restorative postures, meditation and pranayama. Energize the soul by linking a mindful breath with a conscious flow. Breath work helps to open space in the body which yields to increased patience and grounded energy. Build core strength through a mindful flow, improve balance, enhance over-all tone, and increase range-of-motion. We find freedom in movement, draw awareness from the mind to the heart, and allow insight to arise naturally.

Additionally, we try to honor each individual by designing a class framed to promote healing, as well as building physical and emotional strength. In this way, we create an atmosphere conducive to natural expansion and growth. We're forming strong bodies and grounding our energy in this challenging workout-style vinyasa Yoga class. Our studio is non-heated at a comfy 68-72 degrees. We build heat in our bodies as we practice- so all the sweat is from hard work, not a hot room!

RISE & SHINE FLOW

Awaken the mind and body with a flowing & soulful practice. Use breath and movement to invite clarity to the mind and energize the body so you feel great long after you leave the mat. The Rise & Shine Flow is sequenced to progressively warm and stretch the body. We will also connect mind & body to ground your energy, focus the mind and make a beautiful start to your day!

SOUL FLOW

Inspired by the ancient wisdom of Classical Yoga and Ayurveda, this class is a complete practice of asana (posture), pranayama (breath), bhanda, mudras, mantra and meditation. Dynamic and playful Vinyasa sequences are driven by breath and inner awareness is cultivated through alignment cues. Our Soulful Flow is set to music. Additionally, essential oils, medicinal balms, incense or candles may be used during class. This class is appropriate for intermediate to advanced level students. We will explore challenging postures and sequences to grow and explore your practice. This class is non-heated but pleasantly friendly, warm and inviting!

TAI CHI/CHI GONG

Complement and enhance your Yoga, Barre and mindful practice. Join us in a supportive, nurturing, no judgment atmosphere of practicing. It is an eloquent “moving meditation” in grace and balance, it helps improve flexibility, ease of motion, quality of sleep, strengthens the immune system, and overall well-being. Tai Chi improves balance by strengthening the lower body—can be done standing or sitting. Benefits arthritis, fibromyalgia, relieves back and neck tension and improves focus and concentration. All levels of students are welcome and no experience is necessary. 

VINYASA FLOW

We teach an alignment-based 'Vinyasa Flow' practice, culminating in restorative postures, meditation and pranayama. Energize the soul by linking a mindful breath with a conscious flow. Breath work helps to open space in the body which yields to increased patience and grounded energy. Build core strength through a mindful flow, improve balance, enhance over-all tone, and increase range-of-motion. We find freedom in movement, draw awareness from the mind to the heart, and allow insight to arise naturally.

YOGA FOR INNER PEACE

A meditative and quiet practice with gentle stretching, we use breathing techniques to help calm, center and ground the nervous system. The emphasis is on release of muscle tension and increase of flexibility rather than on development of strength and aerobic capacity. This class helps to reduce the effects of chronic physical, mental and emotional stress on the body by inducing a deep relaxation, allowing the parasympathetic nervous system to work properly. Excellent class for all levels. Get on the mat, relax and find peace.
