~NEW~ Monthly Women’s Circle
Celebrate the time of new Moon and new opportunity with your fellow Sisters.
Women have long sought a place to gather. The original “no men allowed” feminist stronghold is centuries old. Join us as we share in discussion, partner yoga, movement, healing arts, crafts, and co-create a platform for women to share, grow, and support one another as sisters.
Monthly Women’s Circles will be led by rotating Kula staff, and held on the Friday nearest to the New moon.

Ana Forrest has been changing people’s lives for nearly 40 years. Now this innovative yoga master draws on her own amazing life story to reveal powerful physical, emotional, and spiritual practices for healing and growth. In her new book, Fierce Medicine, Ana offers a guide to living fully in our lives and bodies, allowing us to discover the ehaling power our body’s wisdom. She distills and shares wisdom from her own life experiences; making complex ideas practical and easily applied. From “stalking fear” to “walking free of pain” and learning the art of “truth speaking”, Ana offers simple practices and poses to “bring aliveness to every cell of the body and foster a connection to Spirit.”

Be sure not to miss this FREE event!

Please join us from 5:15 – 6:30pm at Kula Movement.

Ana Forrest at Kula Movement, Friday – Sunday, 2/24-26!

Friday’s 4pm class, as well as all regularly scheduled classes Saturday – Sunday are cancelled in lieu of the Ana Forrest workshops at Kula Movement this weekend, 2/24-26!

 

Want to feel ready for the workshops?

Drink plenty of water. Eat well, and omit alcohol and drugs from your diet to increase your feeling experience this weekend. Also, if you’re taking the full weekend and plan to stay around Ballard – bring a change of clothes for each session, water, and something to eat.

Plan to park on Shilshole avenue. It is located one block west of Ballard Ave and has all day unlimited road parking. Also, there is a small lot on Leary Ave which is one block east of Ballard Ave that has a dozen spots for $2 after 6pm. Please note the infamous Ballard Farmers Market runs directly out front of our studio every Sunday, 10 – 3pm and can make parking more difficult to find. Please allow time to park and maybe even grab something from the market!

Please bring your own mat, strap, and block. In addition to your mat, please bring a second mat, or beach towel. The studio has ~ 15 props to loan, and there are 45 attendees. Please plan ahead, or purchase your own here at Kula.

After Yoga Ceremony it is important to get rest and refrain from negative dialogue. Soak in epsom salt baths for sore muscles, drink more water than usual, and omit sugar, alcohol, and drugs to increase your post yoga health benefits.

We look forward to sharing this healing experience with you. Please let us know if we can be of assistance in any way.

Namaste,
Your Kula

This is an opportunity to cleanse the sub-conscious, let go of the past and step forth into the first day of spring feeling the best of your life!

This winter challenge invites you to:

This challenge is what you make of transformation.
Try on new ways of being, feeling, and letting go.

After you’ve practiced yoga on and off the mat, write us about your
BIGGEST CHALLENGE TURNED TRANSFORMATION

That’s 60 days to rid yourself of bad habits, judgement, doubt, and fear.
