Events


One of the primary intentions of Kula is to offer our community a sacred space dedicated to both self exploration and self expression. In this spirit we regularly offer single day and weekend workshops as well as 4-6 week workshop series focusing on a array of spiritual disciples and creative arts programs. Yoga workshops offer a way for practitioners to deepen their studentship through a more in-depth focus than a drop-in class allows. Our creative arts workshops are designed to support you in becoming fully self expressed whether that be through creative writing, drawing, painting, drumming or learning improv comedy amongst many other offerings.

Upcoming Workshops and Inspirational Gatherings:



Social Saturdays

Central to our vision for Kula's expanded space is the notion of a gathering place. With the vibe of a funky & artsy coffee house, we host an alternative option for a Saturday night out. A little something for everyone:

1st Saturday of each month: Sound Circle with Sat Kirtin & Dakota Dawkins
Join us for an evening of connecting through sound and creative exploration! This is an opportunity to share music, song, poetry, drumming and healing as a community. This gathering is open to any and everyone who wishes to attend. No experience necessary! Bring your instruments and anything you would like to share! Offered by donation.
7pm Sound Healing Meditation
7:45pm Open Mic
8:15pm Closing Jam Session

2nd and 4th Saturday of each month: Qoya Movement Class
Qoya is based on the idea that through movement we remember our true essence is wise, wild, and free. Wise, wild, and free draw reference to the movement forms we practice in class: wise from the wisdom of yoga, wild from the creative expression in dance, free from the pleasure and freedom found in feminine movement. It is a transformative movement class for women that combines the benefits of fitness - including strength, flexibility, balance, and agility - with a unique, empowering approach that is expressive and fun. Each class has a special theme and is paired with an amazing soundtrack. No dance or yoga experience is necessary and there is no way you can do it wrong. The focus is always on how it feels and in Qoya we say "if it feels good, that's how you know you are doing it right!" For more information about Qoya, visit www.Qoya.Love. *Designed for a community of women. *By donation

3rd Saturday of each month: Movie Night
Join our host Cecile Alfonzo-Antoine for a movie screening followed by a provocative group discussion. *Offered by donation.
