If you travel in Yoga circles long enough, you are likely to stumble across words that may sound kinda funny or even intimidating. In some upcoming posts, I’ll go into the meaning of these words for those of you who are new to ‘Yoga speak’. Even those of you with Yoga experience may not know some of these terms.
Let’s start with Kula. This word has a very similar meaning to the word Sangha. Sangha is often used in Buddhist circles to describe a group of Buddhists studying and practicing together or a spiritual community. Whereas Kula is less specific and could also refer to a tribe or even a village of people. Most often though when Kula used in Yoga circles it is used to describe Yogis and Yoginis practicing Yoga together.
