KRIPALU: CAMP KULA Yoga Retreat
with NIKKI VILELLA, GIULIA PLINE, & LINDSAY ASHMUN
JUNE 21st-26th, 2020
It’s summer camp for adults!
At Kula our practice is a vigorous, highly creative vinyasa form that seamlessly blends attention to alignment with the steady metronome of the breath. The result: an intelligent, ecstatic moving meditation. Although much of our attention is admittedly focused on asana and body mechanics, we are old school enough to know that the body is merely the instrument and the tool we use in order to explore yoga’s more esoteric teachings (where the real nectar is at!).
A week away at Camp Kula gifts you the luxury of time: enough for a daily Kula Flow class (or two!) AND an eclectic mix of yogic studies. In our free time we will feast at the famous Kripalu dining hall, hike along wooded Massachusetts trails, and take long soaks in the hot tub or hold court in the sauna.
Expect to laugh, expect to learn. We love bringing this intensive to Kripalu to help dedicated practitioners and teachers go deep, on both a physical AND a metaphysical level. After Camp Kula you will return home with body, mind, and soul soaring.
*This workshop is open to students who have been practicing regularly for at least 2 years and teachers of all forms of yoga.
