Even before joining the Kulae Family, Jeff always found himself surrounded by a large and loving community. He was born and raised just south of Boston, the middle of 5 children and a member of an expansive extended family. Growing up, his parents had an “open-door policy” in their home, always welcoming friends and family to come over and spend some quality time with Jeff’s family and whoever else might be dropping by.
Jeff took his family’s open-door policy to heart and carried it with him everywhere he went – sports teams, work life, and wherever he called home. Some years after a bad knee injury ended his college sports career, a coworker introduced Jeff to yoga, which created an outlet that helped Jeff to heal and grow both physically and mentally. Jeff came to recognize yoga’s potential benefit for any person anywhere, athletes and otherwise. Yoga was immediately a perfect fit with Jeff’s community-driven spirit – after all, yoga means “union” in the ancient language of Sanskrit.
Soon, Fate came knocking in the form of a job opportunity as Sales Director at Kulae, a small startup company that sold colorful, eco-friendly yoga gear. The minute he stepped through the door, he fell in love with the business and everything it stood for. Family, community, team, good karma, and giving back – it was a match made in heaven! “Kulae yoga” translates to “community union” in Sanskrit. He could combine his passions for community, fitness, yoga, health, team, self-care, family, and athletics into one business and bring them to the world. He finally felt at home in his work and that he was in control of his own destiny.
