Welcome to Kula Yoga
Both of our studios have a wide variety of classes to suit every yogi’s taste.
We also have lots of workshops for those who want to learn, explore, or deepen their practice.

Below you’ll find answers to some commonly asked questions as well as a few guidelines we adhere to in our studios to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to have a wonderful practice.
“The true miracle lies in our eagerness to allow, appreciate, and honor the uniqueness, and freedom of each sentient being to sing the song of their heart.”
Should I eat first?
- No. Yoga is best practiced on an empty stomach.
- If possible, it’s best to wait 3 hours after a large meal or 2 hours after a snack.
What should I wear?
- Most of our classes are heated, wear breathable clothes you can sweat and move freely
- T-shirts, shorts, yoga clothes and bare feet are the most common
What should I bring?
- A towel for your mat and for your body, again, many of the classes are heated.
- It’s best to bring your own mat for hygienic reasons, plus it’s great to build a connection with your mat as you continue practicing.
- We do RENT mats for $1.
- We also sell mats (from $20 – $100).
When should I arrive?
- Please try to arrive at least 10 minutes before the class starts, this will give you time to sign in, pay, and get settled in the room.
- Please let your teacher know if you have any injuries, health concerns, if you are pregnant or have had any recent surgeries. If you are sick and contagious, please refrain from coming to class.
If you have any other questions, feel free to contact us and we’ll get back to you ASAP.
No cellphones in the studio, please
We understand that cellphones are a part of everyday life. But they should not be a part of your KULA yoga experience. We ask that you please leave your phones in your car, if they have to be brought into the studio, they must be on silent or airplane mode – not vibrate. This is out of respect and care for the yogis practicing with you as well as your teacher.
If you have an emergency and must have your phone next to you, please let your teacher know before class.
Please take off your shoes before entering the studio– it is a sacred place for many.
Please be mindful when entering the studio,others around you might be meditating. We ask that you set up quietly and with respect to those around you.
Conversations should be taken into the lobby or outside.
Please be mindful of your cologne and perfume. We breathe deeply during class and strong smells can cause discomfort for those practicing nearby.
Please clean up your space immediately after your practice; wiping the space around you and putting blocks and straps back in their place.
Be respectful to the teacher.Practice within their guidelines and modifications. Please save your personal practice for outside of class.
Be Present: Savasana – the final relaxation pose – is a practice in itself, and we encourage you to stay through it. You’ll get more results from 5 minutes on the mat than 5 rushing off. Love and appreciation for savasana comes with practice.
If you must leave early, please leave before savasana so you don’t disturb others.
Please do not bring children (even well behaved children) to class to sit in the hallway or to attend class. Students must be 14 or older and must be accompanied by an adult, unless for Kula Yoga Kids (4-14).
