What type of yoga does Kula Yoga teach?
The highly qualified Kula Yoga teachers lead our students through 3 types of classes:
Hot – Our Hot Yoga class is a detoxifying, revitalising sequence of postures with specific timing and alignment. We turn the heat up to 35 degrees to allow the body to open up and find depth while promoting the elimination of toxins. Rather than a static sequence like Bikram Yoga we offer a slow flow with vinyasa movements.
Flow – A dynamic, flowing class in a balmy 27 degree room. A faster paced class to tone and sculpt your body while synchronising breath with movement to leave you energised and rejuvenated.
Slow Flow – A class to strengthen and stretch in a regular temperature room. A slow vinyasa flow to focus on correct alignment to build a strong foundation. Perfect for those new to yoga or wanting a slower paced class without the heat.
Yin – Yin Yoga is a meditative, static practice, with long, deep stretching and holds to work into joint mobility. Perfect for those wanting a class to unwind – enjoyed in a welcoming, regular temperature room.
Prenatal/Postnatal – A class specially catered to new mothers and mothers-to-be. Prenatal or pregnancy yoga helps to alleviate back and body pains associated with a growing belly. Postnatal yoga helps to rebuild, restabilise and reconnect with the body.
Can I extend my class pass or transfer it to someone else?
Unfortunately not. Our yoga passes are non-transferable and they can’t be extended. We offer a discounted price for the multi-class passes and a generous time frame to use them. The terms and conditions are clearly on display at reception and on the website when you purchase your passes. Our team are on hand to help you work out the best membership option for you to avoid this situation. For example, our casual classes are drop in, with no ongoing commitment.
What is your minimum age for participation?
14 is our minimum age however 14-16 year olds must be joined by their parent/guardian in the class with them. From the age of 17 students can attend solo. Of course our teenage students will also be able to take advantage of our concession membership prices.

I’m a beginner, I can’t even touch my toes! Can I still participate?
Yes! All abilities are able to participate and enjoy the benefits of yoga.
Kula Yoga provides modifications and variations in all classes to ensure all levels are catered for.
Our goal is to ensure all participants enjoy the amazing benefits of yoga, even if they are a beginner, or an advanced student.
What will I need?
For our classes you will need a yoga mat, towel and water bottle. If you have them bring them along with you. If not, don’t worry as we have rental mats available at the studio to hire for $1 per class.
We also have bath towels available for rental, at the rate of $2 per class. A towel is a necessity for our ‘hot’ classes, as you are guaranteed to sweat.
For environmental reasons we have chosen to be a ‘plastic-bottle-free-zone’. This means that we don’t sell bottled water at the studio. We encourage all students to use a reusable, BPA-free, metal or glass water bottle. If you don’t have one, we have Kula bottles for sale at reception for $12. You can use these bottles over and over as they are a reusable and environmentally friendly option.
In regards to clothing, you will need to wear something comfortable that allows a range of movement. Shorts or leggings, with an appropriate top are great options. No footwear is required as we kick off our shoes at the door, and practice yoga barefoot.
Can I practice Hot yoga if I’m pregnant?
Generally Hot classes are not recommended for pregnant women. We offer one specialised pregnancy/prenatal yoga & postnatal yoga classes on our timetable catered to new mothers and mothers to be. We highly recommend these classes during pregnancy and when returning to exercise after giving birth.
