New Yoga Emphasizes Connection

Ashaya yoga, developed by Massachusetts-based yogi Todd Norian, combines precise biomechanical alignment with heart-centered messaging in a welcoming and inclusive environment. Kula Heart Yoga & Wellness is the only studio in the Lehigh Valley that offers an array of alignment-based yoga classes from licensed ashaya yoga instructors.

A synthesis of yoga, meditation, and Eastern and Western philosophies, Ashaya yoga builds strength, balance, flexibility and heals chronic pain. Silver Kim, E-RYT 500 and certified and licensed ashaya yoga instructor says, “Ashaya yoga transforms lives beyond any other yoga I know. I’ve witnessed deep healing in my students in all areas of their lives.”

Owner Denise Mikovitch, a licensed ashaya yoga teacher, says, “The beauty of Kula is the warmth and friendliness students receive from the teachers, staff and other students. There is always a helping hand and we strive to create an atmosphere where people want to come and refresh their mind in our calming space.”

Location: 3400 Bath Pike, Ste. 201, Bethlehem. For more information, come to the studio, call 610-746-5852 or visit KulaHeartYoga.com.
