This practice is designed for practitioners looking for a strong physical practice that revitalizes and nourishes one’s Self from the inside out.

Medicine Drum Circle All Ages Welcome
The drum circle, led by Buckley Griffis, is held on the 3rd Friday night of each month at 7:30 pm. The medicine circle is an ancient healing practice that has been a vital part of communities all over the world. In this circle, we play drums and other percussion instruments with the clear intention of healing ourselves and others. The circle includes three rounds. The first round is a release of those things which no longer serve our higher self. In the second round, we invite new manifestations into our life. Things that we want to create and enjoy. In the final round, we focus the energy of the circle wherever it is needed. To a loved one or a group of people. Maybe to a situation in our lives or a part of the Earth that needs healing. This is a ritual that focuses our energy and attention in a fun and meaningful way. We like people to come at the beginning of the circle and stay until the end so we are all participating in the journey together. No musical experience is needed to enjoy this medicine circle. Drums and small percussion instruments will be provided, however, anyone is welcome to bring their own instruments.

Tai Chi and Qi Gong (pronounced CHEE-gung)
Tai Chi and Qi Gong (pronounced CHEE-gung) are ancient Chinese practices that combine slow, deliberate movements, meditation, and breathing exercises.
The low-impact moving meditations of Tai Chi and Qi Gong include standing forms performed in a constant smooth motion. The gentle, flowing movements are easy on the joints and can be adapted to any age or fitness level.
The discipline of Qigong is focused largely on cultivating Qi – life force energy. Much of Eastern Medicine is based on it. In fact, Qi Gong is defined as Mastery of Life Energy Force. Tai Chi practice centers on standardized forms or Steps that require optimal mechanical body alignment. Its coordinated motion is done with precision and unity — the Qi manifests itself as a result of the form. Tai Chi also uses both Yin and Yan principles and concepts, balancing them to optimize the mechanics of movement as well as one’s sense of well-being.
Tai Chi is based on Qi Gong but involves more complex and flowing movements with less repetition. Tai Chi movements are circular and spiraling. While not a martial art, Tai Chi provides internal training and preparation for martial arts and each form has a martial arts application. Through unbroken continuous choreographed movement, one eventually enters a meditative state that nurtures awareness of the body and the self.
Our class includes both Tai Chi and Qi Gong movements as well as meditation and breathing exercises.
Benefits you can expect from our class include improved coordination, balance, posture as well as stronger breath. It also facilitates “being in the moment”, free of stress and distraction. It helps nourish and support the Three Treasures that Eastern medicine is based on. These are Jing – or fluids that nourish and sustain life (think circulation of blood, lymphatics, muscles, and nutrients), Qi – life force energy, and Shen – mental energy and will.

"Community Acupuncture": Sliding scale donations from $20-$50
Community Acupuncture is not just a description of acupuncture in a group setting but also describes who is served by acupuncture: our communities. Community Acupuncture is not a one-way relationship of acupuncturists to their communities but the relationship of communities to acupuncture, the clinic, practitioners, and other staff. Community Acupuncture represents the connection and the contract between Acupuncture and Communities. Acupuncture is often defined as one of the major practices of Traditional Chinese Medicine. But it is not just those who are educated to practice acupuncture who get to define what acupuncture is and isn’t. With Community Acupuncture, the definition cannot only come from those delivering care. Those who are served by acupuncture must have also have a role in defining it. To define acupuncture as a technique or part of a body of knowledge leaves out its active role in those who are most affected by it: our patients. The contract between a community acupuncture clinic and the community it serves is simple. The clinic will work to serve you by being here when you need us to provide acupuncture to relieve your pain and suffering. The community will come for acupuncture, pay for treatments, and participate in supporting the clinic in other ways. As in all contracts, both parties give and receive. The community gives its endorsement of acupuncture’s effectiveness, to the affordable sliding scale, to the comfort and accessibility of a community acupuncture clinic, and it receives a reliable resource to maintain or improve the health of its members. Community Acupuncture will be offered here at Kula Yoga Shala within the wall of our Community in the calm setting of our Studios. You will lie on the comfort of your mat, enjoying calming sounds and music while our Acupuncturist, Dr. Craig makes his way around the group to treat everyone. Once your treatment starts you will be left with the needles to relax and enjoy the benefits of the treatment. You will spend your time relaxing and meditating both before and after your treatment while the rest of the Community gets their treatment.

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
