We love sharing yoga, music, meditation, and mindfulness practices with the inner child in all of us. Below are some classes and events we have gratefully shared over the years. We have many expressions and below are some images of a few. We have dedicated our home time in 2020-21 in part to create this space on the web to make it easier than ever to come practice yoga with us. We host in-person classes when possible, at multiple studios as well as outdoor venues. So you can connect with us indoors, outdoors, in studio, or from your phone.

Jeff & Michele Fedora
Jeff and Michele met as yoga instructors, both having adopted the mindful practices along their own paths to personal healing and discovery of life purpose, authentic expression and services to community. Each having thriving yoga practices and a passion to live and share them in common, a deep bond of love and each with children of their own, created for them “their whole practice”.
With combined professional backgrounds in Yoga, Kids Yoga, Aerial Yoga, Medicine, Music, Marketing, Non-profits and community Groups, “their yoga” is “everybody’s yoga” and they love sharing it.
Jeff’s vinyasa flow style at his weekday classes offers a balance of guided breath meditation and integration, powerful and deep all-level vinyasa movement and Yin/Nidra meditation. He brings to the experience the aesthetics of his passion for philosophy, world-religion, spirituality and One-ness, art and music.
His class intention is to cultivate easily repeatable practices and ways of being for his students that ground them deeper into their practice and their own transformational space of truth and internal guidance. It is the yoga of relationship– to source, our selves, each other and all that we experience and create. It is yoga for the community, and every class is a unique and shared journey of inquiry and discovery.
“Although I was already familiar with yogic philosophy, I came to discover the asana, the physical practice, as a middle age male needing to heel spine injuries and 20 years of chronic pain and inflammation. Something just told me to trust the built-in wisdom of the ancient practice. So I did. And I practiced every day and in a couple months I was pain free and my physical body had completely transformed. But I didn’t notice that so much, because I was meeting myself for the first time, I was meeting my own guru and that changed everything. So that’s my intention– to create a safe space of connection and community for others to do the same. I’m grateful for our Kula yoga community. It’s difficult for me to describe ‘what my yoga is’. My yoga is your yoga. I strive to be a passionate student and a compassionate teacher and I’m grateful everyday that I get to be. And wherever that meets me…that’s what my yoga is.”–jeff fedora
Michele brings a unique perspective to the yoga community through her life experiences as a mother, yoga teacher, and many years in the healthcare industry as a PharmD who practiced in hospitals such as Piedmont, Emory University, and Shepherd (Spinal) Center (Atlanta). She is a 500 hour registered yoga teacher (RYT) with Yoga Alliance. Although she has practiced many different types of yoga for over 25 years, her main focus is Aerial Yoga as she discovered it in 2013 and instantly loved it as it provided instant relief from her neck and upper back pain from a skiing injury many years before. As yoga has drastically improved her quality of life, she felt it was too beneficial both therapeutically and mentally not to share it with others. She loves constantly expanding her understanding of these ancient practices of yoga, and is always in a process of learning and teaching.
Michele’s classes are fun while therapeutic, informational and experiential in nature. Each session is a guided journey through the body, using the breath, and inviting the mind to align, creating union of the three. She understands through her own healing journey, that wherever we can bring alignment, breath and intelligence into the body, healing occurs.
As her yoga journey progressed, she found another passion teaching kids yoga as it is a practice of connecting to the inner child within us all, inviting play and joy in, lighting the path to our own divinity. For it is not a matter of if magic exists or not, it’s that we search.
Michele also holds the following certifications:
PharmD – Mercer University – 1999
Aerial Yoga Certification – 120 hours – Circusoul
