Sundays are usually half days with special workshops and activities for rejuvenation and spiritual exploration, such as chakra awakening, kirtan with live music, ecstatic dance, and SUP yoga at the beach.
Each morning starts with meditation, pranayama (breathing), kriyas (cleansing techniques), and bandhas (body locks), which serve to open your energy channels, purify, balance, and revitalize the body and mind. Ancient yoga revolves around meditation as a means to liberate oneself the suffering of ignorance, to see clearly the ultimate reality and attain enlightenment or union with the divine.
Most mornings, you practice Hatha yoga, which involves holding traditional poses for longer periods of time, allowing you to achieve proper alignment, focus, and mindfulness throughout the whole class as you transition from various asanas. Hatha means sun and moon, and is meant to be a perfect balance of physical, mental, and energetic elements to create a holistic practice. 2-3 classes a week.
Most evenings, you will practice Vinyasa yoga, which links variations of traditional asanas and sun salutations with breath and movement to create graceful dynamic flows. Each class is a unique experience invoking a thoughtful journey to test ones limits and explore new possibilities with a careful balance of skill and spiritual mindfulness. 2-3 classes a week.
Aerial yoga is growing popular all over the world and is a great tool for beginners, injured, and elderly who need support, as well as advanced practitioners looking for inspiration.

Aerial also offers therapeutic spinal decompression and pain relief. 2 classes per week (weeks 1-3), 50-hour Aerial foundations (week 3).

On this course, you will learn beginner and intermediate Acro yoga poses and methodology, then practice how to teach them. 1-2 classes per week.
SUP yoga or stand up paddle board, offers a direct connection to nature while floating above crystal clear waters.

Yoga Nidra offers the serene bliss of complete relaxation as you are guided on an internal journey, bringing awareness and love to each part of your body. Yin takes you deep into the subtle layers of connective fascia tissue with long held healing stretches. These classes provide heavenly relief to balance the long hours of physical practice and study. 1-2 classes per week each.

They originally chose the name ULU simply because it sounded nice and had no meaning in English. It’s just a good vibration similar to AUM. After getting into Aerial, they surprisingly learned it meant owl in Hindi. The owl is like an Aerial yogi who sits in quiet meditation, peering through the darkness to dispel ignorance and illuminate the true nature of reality before suddenly flying into action.
ULU also means whirlwind and is slang for crazy in Arabic languages, where they say 'Are you ULU?'. Over time, they chose to define ULU as Universal Love and Understanding. All together, this summarizes perfectly ULU Yoga’s love for traditional yoga and crazy styles like Aerial, which unite students by helping beginners to achieve advanced poses and fly.
