Starting yoga

Welcome to Yoga Kula and the start of your yoga journey. As a beginner we’re sure you have lots of questions, all of which we hope to answer here.

There’s so much to look forward to as someone who is new to yoga, it’s an exciting time, but also one that can be a little daunting. As a dedicated yoga studio, we are here to help you every step of the way.

Free Beginner Yoga Class

At Yoga Kula we offer 1 free online yoga beginner class which runs once a month on a Monday at 6:30pm. This is an opportunity for you to try a live yoga class with our Yoga for Beginners expert Becky Hill for free. The class takes place via Zoom and you book your space by creating an account on Mind Body online (our booking software). When you book the class you will receive an instant automation email to confirm the booking – keep this email safe as it contains instructions on how to join the session via Zoom and a suggested playlist to play during the class (if you want to). If for any reason you do not receive the email please check your spam/junk/promotion folder and if it is not there please contact us so we can investigate this for you.

At Yoga Kula we have a range of classes for beginners, whether you want to de-stress and restore or challenge yourself — we have something for everyone. Click the tabs below to view either our courses or classes:

What to expect from your first yoga class

It’s often the case that a friend or family member has encouraged you to take a yoga class and recommended a specific teacher at Yoga Kula. So here’s all the information you could ever need about our teachers, whether someone’s been recommended to you or not:

Our studio

Our yoga studio in Leeds is temporarily closed, therefore our sessions including our free beginner sessions are all running online via Zoom.

For when the studio reopens, here is where we are located:

Our studio is located between The Zip Yard and Ladbrokes in Chapel Allerton House on Harrogate Road, Chapel Allerton. At first glance it may look like you’re walking into an office building, that’s because you are! Don’t worry, come through the first set of double doors, stop at the second set and locate our buzzer to the right of the doors. Please only press the Yoga Kula intercom (our neighbours don’t always appreciate being asked to let students into the building), you’ll then be buzzed through the doors and when you’re in the building go up the stairs and through the door on the first floor, then go right and through another set of double doors, from here you’ll see the studio on your righthand side. We know it sounds complicated but it’s really rather easy.

Here’s a helpful map and our full address:

We hope all this information has been helpful, but if you still have any questions or queries please visit our FAQ’s page or feel free to call the studio between 9am and 5pm—Monday to Friday—on 07445 625 645.

Alternatively, carry on navigating our website to find out more about everything Kula—from workshops to events and our online shop.

We can’t wait to see you on the mat,

The Yoga Kula Team.
