Flip It: Inversions Workshop

Bring a playful attitude, and come ready to have a good time with your fellow Kula yogis. All levels are welcome!

From breath and intention-setting to alignment and the use of props, they will help you feel acquainted with what you'll experience in a yoga class at Kula.

Buti Brunch! Hotcore + Flow
Let’s all come together at Kula for a sweaty, strength-building Buti Hotcore + Flow class taught by Danea, followed by a light brunch on the roof deck. Feel free to bring a treat or some bubbly to share, but everything will be provided after class.
Buti Hotcore + Flow is a class format that utilizes the Spiral Structure Technique to engage the deep muscles of the core. Broken into pre-sequenced sets to maximize muscle toning and functionality, Hotcore + Flow is the perfect class for students looking to enhance core strength and push the limits of their yoga practice. The second half of class will be a low-impact Buti Flow. Buti Flow is similar to a Buti Yoga class, wherein students move through power yoga postures, dynamic stretching, and deep core work, but without high intensity cardio and plyometrics. Students MUST wear socks to Hotcore + Flow. Crew or knee socks are recommended. This class is not recommended for those that may be pregnant. All levels welcome!

Finding Purpose Together: Moving from Toxic to True Masculinity
In today’s world it is hard to talk about the masculine without hearing about either “toxic masculinity” or “the patriarchy.” It is hard not to internalize these harsh realities about how masculinity manifests at large in our society. Even once we begin the journey into finding our purpose as men in the modern world, where do we look for strong masculine role models? Within all of this turmoil we need communities of men to support and challenge each other in order to realize our divinity and actualize it in ourselves and in the world.
Join Ben Rise and the community of men at Kula for an opportunity to uncover the purpose of the masculine within yourself and within the world today. We will look deeply into ourselves to see where our own masculinity has become toxic, we will ask the question of what healthy masculinity looks like, and we will have the opportunity to bond with men who are walking this path with us. This circle is for self-identifying males.

In this workshop, Danea will teach you all about the significance of the 108-bead necklace, mala meditations, and the craft of making malas. By the end of the workshop, you will have created your very own mala to keep for yourself or give to a special person in your life. You will have the option to create your mala with traditional rudraksha seeds, or mix it up with a variety of beads and gemstones. The workshop will end with a grounding mala meditation with your new piece! Come to learn, make friends, and dive into the beauty of artistic expression.
A mala is a strand of 108 beads traditionally used in meditation to count mantras, prayers, or blessings. Malas are delicately handmade spiritual works of art. When you string our own mala, you have the opportunity to place beautiful intention into each one of the beads and stones. Your mala can be worn as a conscious adornment of the affirmations you want to keep, or you can give the positive vibes charged into your mala to someone as a handmade gift.

Sacred Reflection: Intuitive Journaling in 2019
Let’s come together at Kula on the last Sunday morning of each month—always check the date!— to hold one another accountable to the healthy habits of self-reflection and journaling.
We’ll dig into Megan’s massive collection of oracle and tarot decks and spend time on our own pondering what we want to cultivate and manifest in each coming month. Bring a journal and pen to each session, choose a deck to work with, and spend the time writing about what the images and messages in the cards bring up for you. Dig into your intuition, and be thoughtful of where your mind wanders. This is a special time for you to become more mindful of where you put your energy and how you choose to live with intention. Take this time for yourself.

Unguarded Heart: Tantra and the Yoga of Conscious Relationship
How can we open to deeper intimacy while maintaining our personal freedom? How can we be supportive to our partner’s emotional needs without sacrificing our boundaries and creating co-dependence? How can we honor and celebrate our own autonomy without self-protective mechanisms and holding love at arm’s length? How can we live beyond the conditioning that blocks that natural spontaneity of our hearts?
In Tantra, intimacy itself is a spiritual sadhana — the conscious practice of opening our hearts, releasing our fears, and feeling through our obstructions to loving in every moment. Tantra translates to “stretch beyond limits.” Tantra acknowledges that we all have conditioning, limitations, and wounded core beliefs that we bring to the cauldron of human relationship, and provides a way to allow Shakti (the vital life-force energy within us) to help us expand beyond these limitations. Tantrainvites us to lovingly hold, investigate, and honor our limitations so we can alchemize them into a deeper expression of divine love.
In this workshop, we’ll discuss how we can dance gracefully through the journey of yoking freedom + intimacy, power + love, safety + vulnerability. Through lecture, breath-work, personal journaling, and partner exercises, we’ll explore how the artful use of our natural energy can open us deeper into intimacy and sacred connection with ourselves and in our relationships.
Give yourself the gift of an open heart. Join Jessica Roodvoets and Ben Rise for a conscious exploration of relationship, intimacy, and Tantric spirituality.

Buti Brunch! DEEP
Let’s all come together at Kula for an intentional toning and strengthening Buti DEEP class taught by Danea, followed by a light brunch on the roof deck. Feel free to bring a treat or some bubbly to share, but everything will be provided after class.
Buti DEEP is a restorative and gentle movement sequence that utilizes the Spiral Structure Technique to connect mind to muscle and catalyze vibrational change on a cellular level. Unlike traditional Buti, DEEP is low-impact and focuses on micro-movements with physical touch to connect the brain to innervated muscle and restructure the deep core. DEEP is designed to prevent injury, restore muscle innervation, and assist in the recovery of bladder/uterine prolapse and diastasis recti. This class includes self-massage and pressure point activation to release muscles during deep restorative asanas. All DEEP classes end with a short meditation. *This class is not recommended for those that may be pregnant. All levels welcome!
