If you are unable to attend the event...

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.

If you're unable to attend the event and would like to make a donation in Barbara’s honor, you can do so here:
