On Thursday, July 14th, Barbara Infeld, one of Kula’s greatest supporters and mother of our founder, Geri Topfer, passed away after a three year battle with breast and ovarian cancer. Throughout the course of her treatment, practicing yoga helped Barbara to manage her symptoms and improve her overall well-being. She wanted to ensure that even more people who are battling cancer have access to the practice and experience the same benefits.
