Welcome to our wellness community
WHO WE ARE
Kula, pronounced Koo-la is a Sanskrit word meaning
"community of the heart."
Kula's warm & relaxed vibe has brought a rich community together.
Whatever path you've taken to get here- you're HERE!
We appreciate and welcome you!
Our classes are filled with students of all ages, backgrounds and abilities.
Come to class with an open mind and an open heart. Leave your mat feeling refreshed and inspired to go into the larger community holding the feeling of Kula in your spirit.
To make our space feel like home. You are welcome and accepted here.
Our hope is you find what works for you. Move your body in a way that makes you feel good. Yoga is not “one size fits all”. Kula Yoga & Barre offers a variety of classes from the athletic to restful. We believe wellness is for EVERY body. 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.
Kate Dalrymple E-RYT 200

YOU CAN DO THIS!
Sometime our nerves can get the best of us. Taking the first step to come in for class can be the most difficult. Once that hurdle is crossed, class is a piece of cake!
At Kula you're always encouraged to listen to your body. Only do what you can. There's no judgement for taking a rest or modifying a pose. You don't have to be flexible or in great shape to start. We all have our first day on the mat!
