40 Day Yoga & Mindfulness Challenge, April 7th – May 16th!

It is important for us to have a regular outlet in our lives where we can express what’s primal and raw without worrying about what we’re supposed to do or what other people think. This helps us remember who we are.
This may be found in painting, dancing, or Yoga…
The revelation is to not only leave these activities to the realm of leisure — instead, realize what brings you to your highest place, and to structure life so that you can run that energy, daily.
This requires a mindfulness to discern what kind of Yoga you need to keep you buzzing. Then, block it into your schedule and work in everything else around that. Radical self-assessment in service of Embodiment. #KulaChallenge

Renew your practice and plant seeds of sustainable growth through this transformational adventure!

Spring – shine, a time of balance and potential!

Dearest Kula,

As nature begins to move out of the cold, wet, dark winter toward spring, the pulse of life quickens, the earth warms, and blossoms unfurl, reaching for the sun. As the days grow longer, we begin to feel empowered to reach out for what we want, to establish new adventures, go for walks and connect to the Earth again.

As we draw nearer to Spring’s Equinox, this time of “balance and potential”, we can use the fertility of this time to create opportunities for positive change in our lives and in the world. This is a powerful time to anchor your commitments in your heart and to be clear from that perspective about what you are willing to get behind and what you are not wiling to put any more energy into.

May your commitments continue to be refined as they evolve and manifest, and together, may we share in this robust life through the joy of yoga, health, and community.

Namaste.

Kula’s Amethyst Crystal Biomat:
Why Amethyst?

Amethyst crystals are a violet form of quartz, colored by iron. Universally considered to be a superconductor crystal; when heated or lit amethyst emits Far Infrared Rays more steadily than any other crystal. These rays are considered the most healing and are employed in Infrared Saunas, which have been noted to benefit those with hypertension, congestive heart failure, rheumatoid arthritis and other chronic health issues.

Enjoy a Relaxation Session on our Biomat:

Our Amethyst Crystal Biomat is heated to provide these same benefits of Far Infrared Rays to the body. Available in sessions of 20 or 30 minutes – these relaxation sessions are a great way to incorporate the BioMat into your fitness, relaxation or meditation routine. Ask about the Biomat at the front desk to see if you are eligible for a free 10 minute relaxation session.

Prana flow is an energy filled, full-spectrum approach to “embodying the flow of yoga”, as taught by Shiva Rea and the Global Vinyasa Collective. This style of yoga encourages students to experience prana, the universal source of life-energy and breath. Movement, meditation, energetic alignments, chanting, visualizations, chakra work, and pranayama are also often integrated within each class.

A sacred ceremony of dancing,

Like the ancient tribes we start each dance by gathering in circle around a symbolic fire. We set an intention and pray to be present to what is. Then we listen, feel, cradle, flow, shake, pound, laugh, sing, rest and meditate.
