The Kula Project

Last summer, co-founder, Rebecca picked Julie up from the train station and shared her vision of opening a modern, clean, yoga studio in downtown Mystic. At the same time, Julie had been exploring different concepts around spaces and shared her dream of building a vibrant community around health and wellness (on the water). By the end of the weekend, The Kula Project was born with the mantra of celebrating aloha vibes, good people, and daily asana. 

I stopped by last week, and Julie and Rebecca have done good! 

The Kula Project is a relaxed place where you don't want to leave. You want to hang out with your friends, get a healthy juice, sweat in a heated yoga class, or jump on a paddleboard and take advantage of their waterfront location. You're truly inspired to live your best life whether chatting with studio teachers, shopping their craft brands or meeting up with their amazing community. 

Located directly on the Mystic River enjoy water views while striking your best mountain pose. And with it's Water Street location the studio is walking distance to downtown stops like the Oyster Club, the Treehouse, and Sift Bakery


Kula is a Sanskrit word that can be translated as “community,” “clan” or “tribe.” This word is sometimes used by the yoga community to denote the sense of inclusion and belonging that can be cultivated through yogis coming together to practice yoga.

Here's a sneak peek inside some of their current classes + workshops:
