Our yoga beginners courses have been running successfully for several years. Our students leave the course with knowledge, understanding and confidence to begin regular yoga classes at Kula. Our beginners courses run over 6 weeks, with one class a week to allow students time to digest and reflect on what they have learnt. We have three courses running in January, two of which are fully booked and one on 11th January with space available – be quick because this will book up quickly. We also have courses running continually throughout the year. Read more here.

 

Yoga Bolster
yoga bolster. £45

Yoga Bolster 

buy now.

Having your own yoga props can seem like such a luxury, especially when there are plenty at the studio. However, we believe that when you have your own props at home it encourages you to develop a home practice alongside your studio classes. If having a bolster encourages you to enjoy more relaxation by resting in a restorative pose with your knees on the bolster, then we think this is the perfect Christmas gift for you or a loved one.

Inner Strength & Warm Core Yoga Workshop

Inner Strength & Warm Core Yoga Workshop

buy now.

Our Inner Strength & Warm Core yoga workshop is taking place in the New Year on Sunday 7th January at 11am. For this workshop the studio will be gently heated to 26 degrees Celsius using our infrared heaters. Infrared heat has many health benefits including healing bodily tissues, improving circulation, detoxifying the body and even boosting collagen levels. We will bring our awareness to the core and learn how to use these muscles in your yoga practice as well as everyday life. Explore how and when to activate the deep core stabilisers through traditional yoga methods and other more contemporary principles.

A yoga mat is truly a perfect Christmas gift for either someone beginning their yoga journey or someone who is already practicing.

Deluxe Eye Bag
deluxe eye bag. £15.

Eye bag – £10, Eye Bag with Lavender £13, Eye Bag with gold detail design £15

buy now.

Some people find it difficult to relax and completely and let go in savasana on particular days and other days it comes easily. But did you know savasana (final relaxation) is the most important part of the yoga practice? And sometimes it can be the most challenging! Did you know that an eye bag aids your relaxation in several ways?

  1. It shields the eyes from light – covering the eyes blocks out any glare from light which might keep your mind racing.
  2. An eye bag relieves tension and eye strain because the weight of the flax seeds ensures the perfect amount of acupuncture to release tension from the cheekbones, forehead, temples, and neck.
  3. It calms the mind – we add lavender oil to our eye bags at the Kula studio, this adds a nourishing sense of calm as you relax deeply into your well-earned savasana.

There will also be time for arm balances and inversions with lots of modifications to help support you at whatever stage you are at on your yoga journey. We’ll end the session with half an hour of guided meditation to allow you to completely unwind and relax after this strong practice.


Whatever you chose to purchase for the one you love, or whatever the one you love buys for you be sure to be grateful, spend time with loved ones and relax. You deserve it.
