Mens’ Kula

WHAT’S MEN’S KULA?

What’s unique about Men’s Kula is that we practice together, exploring a theme about masculinity. We check in around our relationship to the theme, and do practices including pranayama, asana, chanting, to help embody the object of the theme more fully. 

Come practice together at Spring/Fall studios, then join us for brunch at Tomate cafe after.

June Kula led by David Schlussel: theme: PLAYFULNESS

Playfulness: If you want to be enlightened then you’ve got to lighten up*

I used to take yoga so seriously. I tried to perfect every pose, always wanted to be the best in the class. I’d get disappointed when I felt less flexible than the day before, or fell out of a balance pose, or struggled in a challenging pose.

I noticed that the way I felt leaving a class determined how I’d feel the rest of the day. Then I stopped judging myself so harshly. The challenges were getting greater as my practice advanced, but I started appreciating the journey, not just the destination.

Suddenly, I started feeling good no matter what form of objective success. I had subjective enjoyment.

Deepak Chopra said poetically that the attitude you have while you exercise is the energy you are storing in your body. The way we feel during any activity lasts with us.

They say masters fail more times than most people try. Try on enjoying failing on the path to success. If you want to be enlightened then you’ve got to lighten up.

In this class, we’ll explore taking on challenges with a playful attitude.

A haiku for you:
you decide
grumpy till success
constant joy

No yoga experience necessary. All levels welcome.

This month the practice will be led by David Schlussel
