The kula-kamala-yoga school of yoga offers a truly holistic environment where community, inspiration & well-being matter. We cultivate a vibrant, peace-filled, non-competitive and non-judgmental, sacred learning & practicing environment. We have highly trained professional yoga instructors who are deeply committed to their students. We believe that yoga is for everyone. New and experienced students are welcome. We will happily guide you toward a practice that is appropriate for you. Our classes are purposefully small and structured such that every student feels welcome, safe and attended to. Flexibility is not a prerequisite for attending a yoga class.
kula-kamala-yoga is a style of yoga that is centered in anahata (the heart) chakra, spiritually uplifting, therapeutically oriented and with a strong focus on alignment. Our work also includes a significant commitment to seva or service to our community. Our style is appropriate for all levels of practice and is not particular to any one dogma. Our students come from all walks of life and from all religious backgrounds. We DO NOT taut religion. We DO taut happiness and self acceptance. We believe true happiness emerges as faith, love and compassion deepen. Whatever YOU believe in, yoga can deepen that belief as the wonders of presence opens our hearts to the completeness of the Universe.
At kula-kamala-yoga, we see yoga as a healing modality through which people can integrate body, mind & spirit bringing an end to oppression and suffering for themselves and for all beings. We work to create an environment that is conducive to true yogic living. We abide deeply in the yogic and buddhist philosophy of sangha (supportive community) and we are deeply committed to heart centered yoga and philosophical teachings which espouse that to love is the only path to true happiness.
We teach in an uplifting manner meant to enable the student to move toward alignment of body, mind and spirit.
Yoga, which originated in India, has been transformed in many ways throughout its history and has grown into a life practice embraced by millions worldwide. Yoga is not an exercise routine. The practice of asana (posture) is only one facet of yoga practice. Meditation, Pranayama, Nada, Kriya are a few of the others. There are many. You do not need to know all the facets in order to see and experience the value of yoga. A single yoga class is often enough to bring a new vibrancy to our experience and a new hop to our step. Through Yoga we learn to embrace and yet transcend the ordinary as well as the extraordinary and all in a single breath, in what is called the "now" or the "present moment". Yoga enhances our personal growth & healing through the jewels of wisdom it imparts. A few of the jewels of yoga: we are all connected, the Divine thrives within each of us, the only true answers in this life are the ones established within the grace and light of love.
