On the yoga front, we explore the interplay between side bending and forward folding.

James earned a BFA in Jazz Performance from The New School in Manhattan, where he currently serves as an Assistant Teacher for the Indian Classical Music Ensemble.

Kent Ishimoto explores the world (and his) through music. His curiosity led him to instruments like the guitar, kalimba, handpan, and voice. He expresses his art through many different mediums and locations. Kent is also a RYT 500 hour yoga teacher and a certified Katonah yoga teacher.  He has played live music for Yoga classes since 2017. His experience as a teacher allows him to play off of the teachers and students to offer a unique musical experience every class. Instagram:  @beesnthingsnkent

(Int) The most delicious (and stealthily challenging) of Kula classes. A one hour serving of sticky, sweaty Kula Flow, lathered with 20 minutes of yin yoga (deep, intense stretching) and a 15 minute restorative asana topping. YUM. We know that no one needs a little deep chill out more than NYC yogis, but most of us are too type A to take a true restorative class. So – this is the Kula solution. As one student put it: "You kick our ass for an hour and then kiss it for another 30 minutes.” (Sanskrit translation please)?
