Alternative Movement is a group of yoga teachers passionate about sharing the joy of playful movement. They bring yogic ideals out of the studio and apply them to fun activities such as slacklining, acroyoga, paddleboard yoga and hoop dancing! They aim to inspire people to find stillness off their mats so that we all may consciously contribute to our community. Class is at Kula Yoga Shala either in the studio or on the grounds. Join the Movement, MAKE PEOPLE PLAY!!
A gentle, flowing class, emphasizing slow, graceful movements, deep stretches, balancing postures and deep relaxation. Take time for yourself to slow down, open your body, breath and find inner peace. Students of all ages and abilities are welcome.
Ashtanga yoga is a living lineage that reached millions of practitioners through the inspirational life of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois. The primary series of Ashtanga yoga is a flowing, set sequence of asanas. In Ashtanga Yoga the movement is always synchronized with the breath and there is never a separation between the two actions. When the synchronization of movement and breathing is an integral part of the yoga practice and the three body locks are applied, an internal, purifying heat is generated in the body. Unwanted toxins are released and disposed of, vital hormones and minerals flow into the bloodstream and the nervous system is purified. The result is a light and strong body. This practice is both a method and a state of mind-body awareness allowing practitioners to develop control of the senses, a deep awareness of themselves and their inner sensations, their emotions and workings of the mind.
Svaroopa® (R) Yoga
Svaroopa® Yoga is a Hatha style of yoga that focuses on releasing the muscles connected to the spine. This core spinal release practice uses precise alignments, adjustments and props for support, so your body can release into supported poses, lengthening muscle, decompressing joints, and letting go of tensions from the inside out.
This core spinal release gives you an amazing feeling of wellbeing, increased energy, better flexibility, stability with a greater awareness and ease in your body. Suitable for all levels, classes start with the foundational poses, working through different themes, as you learn the elements of Svaroopa® yoga practice.
Practice with Purpose
100% of the proceeds from this class will be donated to Karma Krew: A yoga-based 501(c)3 nonprofit focused on mobilizing the collective energy of the yoga community to translate the insights revealed on the mat into community service and activism. This class will be taught by a different teacher from the south florida yoga community each week offering a variety of styles, themes, and personalities with the shared intention of giving back. Karma Krew is headquartered right here in Jupiter and has inspired yoga outreach initiatives in over 100 cities throughout the world. Learn more at www.karmakrew.org.

Community Acupuncture provides you an affordable and yet still effective way to receive the profound benefits of regular acupuncture care. In this approach, clients remain fully clothed and recline comfortably in a zero-gravity chair during treatment. Therapy occurs in a group setting and there may be several clients receiving treatment at the same time in the same large open space. Lighting is subdued and quiet is encouraged throughout the treatment. A session lasts from 40 to 50 minutes and the price is right … anywhere from $20-$50. The amount paid is at your discretion. Because of the lower investment required you have the opportunity to receive more regular treatment. Many folks come two or three times a week for a number of weeks to help improve their condition and well-being. Community Acupuncture is especially helpful for addictions, such as smoking, drinking and overeating and for stress reduction, thereby helping to manage many stress-related diseases and conditions.
