Many moons ago we created The NYC Kula Hour for the urban dweller who couldn’t manage to carve out a full 90-120 minutes for their yoga practice. We consider it a “65 minute shot of the good stuff” where we get right down to brass tacks. This winter we extend the concept to our infamous Camp Kula! For those who cannot carve out an entire week for summer camp (or for those who just want to double dip!) we’ve added a winter weekend intensive just for you.
At Kula our practice is a vigorous, highly creative vinyasa form that seamlessly blends attention to alignment with the steady metronome of the breath. The result: an intelligent, ecstatic moving meditation. Although much of our attention is admittedly focused on asana and body mechanics, we are old school enough to know that the body is merely the instrument and the tool we use in order to explore yoga’s more esoteric teachings (where the real nectar is at!). At Camp Kula you can expect a daily Kula Flow class which we will sprinkle with an eclectic mix of yogic studies (anything from bandha and pranayama to Vedantic philosophy and chakra studies). In our free time we will feast at the famous Kripalu dining hall, hike along wooded Massachusetts trails (snowshoes anyone?!) and take long soaks in the hot tub or hold court in the sauna. Expect to laugh, expect to learn. We love bringing this intensive to Kripalu to help dedicated practitioners and teachers go deep, on both a physical AND a metaphysical level. After 3 days at Camp Kula you will return home with body, mind and soul soaring.
This workshop is open to students who have been practicing regularly for at least 2 years and teachers of all forms of yoga.
