Hawthorn & Hampton Studios Reopening from Nov 9!
Following the announcement from the government to allow the reopening of gyms & studios, we are excited to be reopening our Hawthorn & Hampton studio doors from Nov 9.
Join Kula founder Kacey as she takes you through a tour of our studios in Hawthorn & Hampton, giving you a rundown of procedures and what to expect when you return to class. Please note the additional requirement of mandatory masks in studio.
When in the studio
- Classes will be limited to 10 students with compulsory bookings required.
- Hand sanitiser & appropriate cleaning products will be provided upon entry.
- Social distancing floor markers will be present in both the reception & the studio.
- You will be required to bring your own mat, props, towel & water bottle as our equipment will be temporarily unavailable for use. This includes our tea station.
- There will be no hands on adjustments and the teacher will stay on their own yoga mat during class.
- The studio will be open 10 minutes before each class and we kindly ask that you avoid lingering before and after your practice. This is to ensure we can maintain social distancing, reduce crossover between classes and allow sufficient time to thoroughly clean the studio.
- You will be required to wear your mask to your mat. If you become out of breath, or struggle to breathe, during your practice please remove the mask as needed.
- After class you will need to ensure your mask is back on before packing up and leaving the studio.
- If you have a medical reason to exempt you from wearing a mask please let your teacher know.
- At this stage our teaching team will also be wearing masks while teaching classes unless they struggle to breathe and need to remove temporarily. Rest assured they will be based on their own socially distanced mat during this time.
As always, please stay at home and join our online studio classes if you are unwell, as our teachers will do the same.
IN STUDIO BOOKINGS OPEN NOV 9!
We have released a ‘starter’ schedule with a maximum of 10 students per class. As those initial classes book our we will release another wave of classes for bookings in line with demand. Please be patient as we navigate the best way forward during these unprecedented times and ensure your email address is subscribed to receive class notifications.
How to book:
You will need your MBO log-in details. Please note, these are different to the Kula Online Platform. We recommend checking you have the right details. If you can’t log in please contact us at [email protected]
Get your pass ready:
If you want to access in studio class from June 12 you will need to have your membership active or pass purchased before hand. If you wish to access both our Online Studio & In Studio classes then we recommend jumping onto our Kula Tribe Membership which gives you unlimited access to both.
** Please note – if you currently have a Kula Tribe Membership on suspension you will need to contact us to organise reactivation of your membership in order to be able to book in for classes when bookings open from Nov 9. Please do not attempt to re-activate your membership yourself, this will simply sign you up for a second membership. Email us at [email protected]
When a class has reached capacity, you will have the option of signing up to the waitlist. You will need to have an active pass to qualify for the waitlist. If a spot become available with more than 12 hours notice, it will be given to the first person on the waitlist. If that is you, your spot will be automatically confirmed and you will receive notification via email. If you can no longer make that class you must cancel your booking more than 12 hours in advance of the class, otherwise your booking will be subject to the cancellation policy.
No waitlist reservations will be confirmed with less than 12 hours notice.
As class sizes are smaller and we have people on waitlists, we will need to apply a firmer cancellation policy to make sure bookings are fair to everyone.
You are able to cancel/change your booking up to 12 hours prior to the class via your mind body account or Kula App. Cancellations via phone/email will not be accepted.
If you book using a 10 class pass, casual or intro pass, and do not attend or cancel your booking before the 12 hour window, you will forfeit your class. If you have an unlimited membership, Kula Tribe or 12 Month Unlimited, and do not attend or cancel your booking before the 12 hour window you will be charged a $15 cancellation/no show fee.
Please ensure that you have subscribed to our emails, have provided your correct details and downloaded the Kula App so that you’ll receive a notification when we release more class times.
If you have any questions regarding the status of your pass or membership, please check by logging in to your mind body account or contact us at [email protected]
We look forward to seeing you back in the studio soon!

Will Kula continue to offer Online classes once studios reopen?
Yes, our Online Studio will still be available even when studios reopen, offering both LIVE streamed classes & an expanding library of over 400 recorded classes to choose from. If you do not feel comfortable returning to in studio classes you may choose to continue with your online studio membership. However, you also have the option of booking in for our in studio classes or practicing a combination of both.
What is the best membership option if I wish to practice in studio classes and have access to the Online Studio?
Our Kula Tribe Membership gives our access to both our Online Studio and In Studio classes and is our best value membership available. Click here for more information on Kula Tribe.
Where can I buy my own props?
Yes, there are a number of places you can purchase your own props. If you would like to replicate your Kula studio favourites, we source our bolsters from Calm Buddhi, our mats from Manduka and our blankets from Tranquil Tribe. Our friends at lululemon are more than happy to help, with stores conveniently located close to both studios in Camberwell & Brighton. Or may also wish to explore EMP Industrial who stock a number of different brands and are happy to deliver.
Will there be a maximum number of classes I can practice per week?
Initially we kindly ask that you limit your class bookings to 4 per week to ensure everyone has the opportunity to practice with current class number restrictions. We will let you know as soon as this changes.
Can I email to book in for a class?
Unfortunately bookings made by phone or email cannot be accepted as our system is automated for fairness to all students. Please make your bookings through your Mindy Body account or the Kula Yoga App – you can also cancel and change your bookings through your account also.
What happens if the class I want to book if full?
If the class you are wanting to book has reached capacity or is “full” you can opt to join the waitlist and we will notify you if a spot becomes available. No waitlist reservations will be confirmed with less than 12 hours notice.
If you have any further questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us at [email protected]
