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.

MEET YOUR MUSE with Rose Shaw
Sunday, March 25th ~ 1pm – 4pm
$40

INTUITIVE PAINTING WITH ROSE SHAW. We are delivering a WILD and COLORFUL gift to you ~ an invitation rather, to let your MUSE come out and PLAY for the day. During this class you'll be guided in a step by step Intentional Creativity process to access your MUSE and her messages for you! Intro to Intentional Creativity. the way out of creative stagnation, a meditative art experience to calm your inner critic. I have found an amazing new process for you to access the creative spirit within and tune in to your true heART. It would be my pleasure to share this process, from the teachings of Shiloh Sophia, in an Introductory ‘Painting Jam’ on: SUNDAY MARCH 25, 1:00-4:00 AT Kula Yoga, Jupiter. NO PREVIOUS PAINTING EXPERIENCE NECESSARY-I MEAN IT!! My own process has been one full of art academia and practice and so I can’t tell you how exciting it was to find a method so FREEING as this! YOU HAVE TO EXPERIENCE IT YOURSELF. If you have felt a disconnect from what your heart tells you, and what your mind says. Creativity restores that balance! It helps you listen to your internal message. We start with a brief art me-ditation/circle and share a red thread to connect us with intentions, from there we dive into our painting with a question for the day and respond to that on paper. Prompts are very WIDE open ended and include painting with two colors at once, covering over our writing, ‘coloring in’ with paint, glazing, ‘composting’ old ideas, “I AM HERE” stroke and finally, after a very simple practice with just 13 lines, meeting your Muse! From there we add symbols, detail, whatever we wish to bring forward and release old negative feelings we had before we started. We also dance a little, enjoy music, and support while painting, and there’s chocolate! You are welcome to bring youth girls ages 9-12 for half class fee. Please be mindful and ensure that your child is capable of participating in a way that will not detract from the experience of other students. ART SUPPLIES: Much of these materials can be found in your home already, or at a local arts and crafts store, such as Michaels or online. Water Color Paper - size 22x30, 140lb. Or you can use a canvas if you like. Paint brushes – student grade, inexpensive is fine. You’ll want a medium size, one larger and one smaller for detail called a liner brush.

Glitter (optional, but nice to have if it’s easy). Plain white paper & pen. Painting smock or clothes that you can get paint on. Acrylic paint does not come out of clothes.

The Upanishads are the culmination of the spiritual vision that is birthed in yogic practice. In this workshop, we will explore the yogic spirit of the Upanishads.

SATURDAY, APRIL 7 ~ 1:30 PM - 4:00 PM ~ BHAGAVAD GITA
1ST MILLENNIUM BCE: Yoga is fairly well established as are many schools of philosophy, including Sankya, upon which classical Yoga is based. The Bhagavad Gita serves to bring together various approaches under a common goal, that of seeking union with the Divine. We will, together, explore the Gita’s yoga.

SUNDAY, APRIL 8 ~ 9:00 AM - 11:30 AM ~ YOGA SUTRAS
1ST AND 2ND MILLENNIUM CE: Yoga takes on clear definition with the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, father of classical Yoga that most contemporary yoga schools are inspired by.
