• Bodē NYC: A Yoga Studio Story

    April 10, 2018

    Bodē NYC: Creating a home for radiant health and enlightenment in New York City Donna Rubin and Jennifer (Jen) Lobo are dynamic business women - always on the go with four studios, a rebranding in progress, and the introduction of a variety of classes and programs being rolled out literally as we spoke. Their story is a fascinating one - a partnership built on a chance meeting and cemented with a passion for hot yoga. (Donna) “I was a dancer on tour doing Carousel. It was hard to find dance classes to stay in shape and get warmed up before a show. A lot of people in the cast had do

  • Introducing the Yogaboard

    November 20, 2017

    Introducing the Yogaboard   “Welcome to Germany!” After a long day of traveling, I arrived on a train feeling a bit of a mess to find two very tall (I’m a bit petite - 5’4” tall if I really stretch) smiling German men greeting me. Within moments I’m hugged, my massive bags are taken from me, and I’m walking across town for my first rather sumptuous German vegan friendly meal and a solid German beer to revive me from my journey. I’m in Würzburg, Germany, home of Strobel & Walter the makers of the Yogaboard. And it is Dominic (Strobel) and Patrick (Walter) w

    The Life of a Traveling Yogi - When just any mat won’t cut it. Guest Blogger - Samantha Eve Kennedy I recently wrote a blog for Kulae after interviewing the amazing Tommy Antoon during a trip to San Francisco.

I positively loved the lilac mat for my daily practice but it was a bit thick for the traveling I was about

  • Yoga Studios and Community

    August 16, 2017

    Spotlight on Kulae Studio Owner Tommy Antoon with Guest Blogger - Samantha Eve Kennedy “Lots of yoga studios have a foo foo mentality focusing on the “pretzel poses”…that’s not what my studio is all about. That’s not what I am about. Our classes are about giving access to yoga for everybody.” I’m sitting in what will be the back garden area of Go2Yoga studio. Across from me is Tommy Antoon, owner of Pacifica Beach Yoga in San Francisco, and as of 2 days ago, this studio as well. With his heavy East Coast accent, bowler’s hat, and speech peppered with a few strategically

  • How I Became A Yoga Bro

    July 22, 2017

    After years of deliberation and sorry excuses, I decided to take the leap and attend my first yoga class. That was 4 months ago and I have since been to about 40 classes and began dating a wonderful woman. I’m a male in my early 30’s. I grew up playing sports and continued to do so at a competitive level in college, and a not so competitive level after college (beer leagues). I guess you could call me a “Bro.” I always envisioned yoga as a “hippie” activity that was stretching and not much else. I have come to find out there is so much more to yoga that I could have applied to m

  • What is Yin Yoga?

    April 10, 2017

      What is Yin Yoga? Increasingly, the phrase “Yin yoga” is floating through the yogi circuit airwaves, slowly getting louder and more insistent. But a lot of people are not clear on what exactly “Yin yoga” means, especially in turbo-paced places like New England, where Kulae is based. So, we decided to do some research and give you the shakedown on the new down dog. Here are the basics:   What does “yin” mean? First recorded in 1671, the Chinese character 陰 (yin) can mean “shade” or “moon” or “hidden” or even “secret” -- with an added rough Englis

  • Guest Blog — Transition from Winter to Spring with Grace

    April 3, 2017

    Guest Blog – Transition from Winter to Spring with Grace Here we are, friends. Springtime! You see it in headlines, read it in people’s faces, hear it in their voices.   Hope. A yearning. An approaching lightness. Eager for warmth. Anything to move away from the harshness of winter.   So often we slip into forward thinking during seasonal changes, keen to move on. We firmly plant ourselves in the brightness of summer days, late spring’s blooms on our minds. We acquire a thought pattern of “once this is over, then that other thing will finally happen

  • Defeating Seasonal Depression

    March 8, 2017

      What is it? If you’re living in New England, chances are you’ve heard of Seasonal Affective Disorder (aptly abbreviated to SAD and otherwise known as seasonal depression). For those of you not in the American Northeast, what sounds like a goofy or trivial issue is actually a serious clinical condition that can alter half a person’s year this far north. Unlike other forms of depression, the seasonal variety can sometimes be staved off by informed and preemptive at-home measures.   What does it look like? SAD is a form of depression, which is characterized generall
