Yoga – Kula Teachers: Rob & Steve and Krista Lou
Yoga means ‘union’ or ‘connection’. It can be a word which can be used to signify any form of connection. Yoga is both a state of connection and a body technique that allows us to connect to anything. Yoga facilitates balance and health, and helps us unfold our dormant potential. Yoga is the science, that is, it is a body of techniques that lead us to consciously connect with ourselves and with life.
Dr. Swami Shankardev Saraswati

Belly Dancing – Kula Teachers: Zahara & Tallulah
Belly Dance Fusion is a modern belly dance form that is rooted is traditional Middle Eastern dance, but blended with more modern dance elements such as jazz, hip hop and industrial. Belly dancing is natural to a woman’s bone and muscle structure with movements emanating from the torso rather than in the legs and feet. The dance often focuses upon isolating different parts of the body, moving them independently in sensuous patterns, weaving together the entire feminine form. Belly dancing is generally performed barefoot, thought by many to emphasize the intimate physical connection between the dancer, her expression, and Mother Earth.
