Our Philosophy

We believe Yoga is an opportunity to skillfully challenge our boundaries while celebrating life.  Our teachers and the evolution of Kula are guided by the following principles:

  •  A lifelong devotion to practice, learning and self discovery.
  •  A dedication to working towards our highest good.
  •  A commitment to create a community where we can share our knowledge, playfully expand our practice, deepen the conversation within ourselves and our students, and most importantly, have fun!
  •  A desire to discover a connection to our own hearts and the world around us.
