Remember summer camp? Marshmallows, bonfires, swimming in the lake, letters from Mom, new friends. At Camp Kula, we kept the bonfire, the lake, and the escape from your hectic life at home, and added an eclectic mix of yogic studies, two sweaty Kula Flow classes daily, and all the amenities and delicious food that Kripalu offers.

We started Camp Kula four years ago because we recognized that most urban practitioners are so consumed by their busy lives that it’s hard to fit in a 90-minute class—and even when you do, the practice is often primarily physical. At Kula, our practice is a vigorous, highly creative vinyasa form that focuses mostly on asana, but we know that yoga’s esoteric teachings have just as much to offer. We’ve made the time and space for both: our popular Kula Flow classes and a variety of workshops that explore bandhas, Vedantic philosophy, kriyas, pranayama, meditation, and sutra studies.

Think summer camp for adults. By the end of the week, you will float home—body, mind, and spirit soaring.
