About UsOur Team
Instructor / Owner
Namaste! My name is Sydney Holly and Kula is my 2nd home. I’ve owned and operated the studio since September, 2012. Yoga came into my life as a transition from dancing in New York City. I responded to this new form of movement right away. I knew I had found my path. I went on to receive my 500 RYT E from Yoga Works NYC and I’ve been teaching since 2001.
Prior to that, I got my BFA in dance from the University of Illinois. My teaching style is dynamic. I incorporate the alignment, pranayama and philosophy of Yogi Raj Alan Finger’s Ishta System with the flowing movement of Vinyasa. My students know me for my elegant sequencing and ability to break down postures into their essential elements.
I believe in developing a body that can perform at its maximum efficiency. I encourage my students to explore their perceived limitations. A thoughtful yoga practice can bring clarity, harmony, and inspiration to your life by allowing you to live your fullest potential. I’m also a proud mama of 5 big boys. In my free time, I love to travel and read about fashion.
Can’t wait to meet you on the mat!
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.
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.
