Tell us about your company.

As an Atlanta-native, I created atl kula with my wife Kiara to serve as an Atlanta-based wellness studio in Atlantic Station. With yoga, Pilates, barre, and natural products under one roof, atl kula is about movement, community, and holistic wellness. We created this space to promote a natural lifestyle and to keep the spirit of community at the forefront of every day life. It is atl kula’s vision to be a special place for everyone to come together for a common purpose of living our best lives, lifting up our neighbor, and having some fun along the way. 

What are the true benefits of doing yoga for men and women. 

Yoga is an amazing mind-body practice and there are so many mental and physical benefits! Not only will you develop strength, balance, and flexibility, you will become more mindful and learn how to de-stress with movement and breathing techniques. Yoga benefits heart health, can relieve physical pain, help you sleep better, and increase your energy levels. Once you practice yoga regularly, you won’t be able to stop!

How has the pandemic impacted your business? 

While the pandemic has made it difficult to interact with people in the same way we used to, it has made us sharper and more agile as a business. We’ve advanced so much in such a short time due to having to be creative and focus on long-term growth. We now offer virtual, outside, and in-studio classes as well as all-natural lifestyle products. 

Where does technology fit in your business.

Technology is an integral part of our business by allowing us to be more accessible to our clients. From our virtual classes to smart marketing, we are able to serve our community more efficiently and effectively.

What is the thing that is commonly misunderstood about yoga? 

A common misunderstanding about yoga is that you have to have a certain body type or be flexible to begin a practice, but that is not true! Yoga helps you develop flexibility, strength, and more starting right where you are.  

What kind of experience should someone expect when participating in your classes? 

As a studio inspired by nature, someone visiting us should expect to experience a space that feels like an oasis. On the way to class, they’ll be greeted by our koi fish in our indoor pond and welcomed by our amazing instructors. Each class has a relaxing ambiance including warm lighting and plant life designed to support a fulfilling yoga practice, and our knowledgable instructors are there to guide and support their individual yoga journey every step of the way.

Where would you like to see your career in the next five years?

In 5 years my wife and I plan to expand atl kula’s footprint to more locations as we continue to encourage communities to take a proactive approach to health and wellness!
