Descriptions

Open Vinyasa Flow

A dynamic practice linking breath and movement. Elegant sequencing helps build heat, concentration, endurance, strength and flexibility in equal measure. Advanced asanas, including inversions and arm balances will be offered as well as modifications. All levels welcome.

Kula Calm

A fluid practice developing proper asana alignment and breathing techniques. Simple sequencing encourages focus and concentration while building strength and flexibility. This is a great place to start if you’re brand new to yoga. All levels welcome.

Kula Conditioning

A high energy blend of cardio, strength training and yoga. The sequenced intervals help to enhance fitness levels; asanas encourage increased flexibility. Please bring athletic shoes and your mat, and be prepared to challenge yourself in this fun new class. All levels welcome.

Ashtanga

Intended to be practiced regularly, this powerful and healing practice is a specific sequence of postures (asanas) linking breath (pranayama) and movement (vinyasa.) Ashtanga is an athletic flow combining strength, flexibility and stamina.

Mysore

Mysore Style is the traditional way of teaching Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga, as taught by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois. Everyone works within his or her breathing rhythm and practices the Primary Series with guidance.

Avita

Avita Yoga™ is a methodology that gently identifies restrictions impeding the body’s natural potential for freedom of movement, while simultaneously providing the mode to resolve them. Restrictions and limitations are resolved in a manner that is adaptable and unique to each student. It is sometimes passive, sometimes active and sometimes even quite demanding, but it is not a workout. It’s a work-in.

Avita Yoga™ isn’t about trying to fit the body into difficult positions for future gain. It is about reclaiming the movement, health and stability that naturally belong to you and your body in the here and now. It’s a shift in perception—starting anew, right where you are each time you arrive on the mat, no matter what condition your body is in, no matter what frame of mind you are in—it’s perfect because that’s exactly what needs tending. Avita Yoga™ is about creating new possibilities in body and mind, moment by moment. The sequences help resolve limiting patterns that no longer serve us so we can remember a healthier way of being in body, mind and spirit. It’s about going forward and creating a new way of being, for a lifetime.

Anyone can practice Avita Yoga™ because it is designed to work with every type of body. No experience is necessary and many first-time students quickly get comfortable with the practice. It works for all ages and body types.

Our Mission

Kula yoga is a studio designed by our community, for our community. By building and shaping the studio workspace together, we are creating an environment that allows you to explore and deepen your yoga practice in fresh and exciting ways...while meeting your scheduling and lifestyle needs.

Our Promise

Kula contributes its time and resources to schools and fundraisers. We also help cultivate the Minneapolis yoga community by participating in local collaborations.

We strive to not only give our best to our studio community, but also give back to the larger community.

✨Opening our Hearts to Change✨

I have some bittersweet news to share...Kula Yoga is changing.

After 10 amazing years at 4402 France Avenue South, the studio space will close on May 31st. I will be the sole Kula teacher live-streaming all classes from my home starting June 1st.

The livestream program is robust, convenient, and surprisingly intimate. I am happy that we were able to adapt to this way of teaching yoga so effectively and look forward to continuing this shared connection with you.

I moved to Minneapolis in 2005 and was lucky enough to start teaching at Michelle Lynn's beloved Yoga House right away. Many of our Kula Community, reading this newsletter 17 years later, attended my first class there. In 2012 the studio changed ownership and Kula Yoga was born. To be able to spread the love of yoga and meet so many amazing human beings along the way has been a joy beyond measure. And this is why the Kula teachers and I are so happy that it's not ending...it's just evolving.

Kula is Community...and our beautiful community is growing. I am thrilled and honored to announce that friend and fellow yogi Wendy Oberg is opening The Yoga Room Edina this fall!

Wendy and her devoted team at The Yoga Room Eau Claire have been cultivating an inclusive and inspiring yoga studio and school since 2017. Their expansion into Edina is organic and I am so grateful to be a part of it. You will find your favorite Kula Yoga teachers and me teaching in-person classes at The Yoga Room Edina this fall.

The Yoga Room Edina will be located in the Lorient building at the corner of Sunnyside & France; just steps away from the current Kula location.

Please join me in honoring this transition. So many years, so much laughter, so many tears, so many down dogs, and of course love....so much love. And much, much more to come. Let's honor the past, celebrate the future, and embrace the moment together.

Friday May 20th
5:30-6:30pm open vinyasa flow
6:30-8:30pm celebration

With love & gratitude & even more love,
