Morgan Kulas is an artist and educator currently based in the Southwestern United States. Her practice and teachings are grounded in a sincere desire to transform suffering into understanding and to heal the body-mind-spirit connection.
Morgan was introduced to yogic studies as a young dancer in art school. She has been a devoted student of Hatha Yoga, Daoyin Arts, and Zen Buddhism since 2005. She has been teaching since 2011.
Morgan brings to her offerings a lifetime of training in classical and contemporary dance as well as considerable practice and study in Eastern Arts, Philosophies, and Sciences. When teaching yoga asana, some days she gravitates towards long holds in postures, buoyed up by props. Other days she loves a sweaty flow and the curiosity of her edge.
Morgan is registered with Yoga Alliance as a 500 E-RYT and is the founder of Aarunya Yoga School. She is currently receiving her MFA in Interdisciplinary Art and Regenerative Culture at University of Hartford. Her mission is to restore connections between people and the earth through community centered movement and meditation offerings.
"Morgan stands out as having exceptional abilities to connect with others on deep levels and to work on her own personal growth. Morgan is both strong and sensitive, having the ability to intuit what is going on with those around her and then holding space for them or taking action as appropriate. She is very engaging and fully present in her interactions and has a unique ability to connect and engage deeply with others on a variety of levels – mental, spiritual, and emotional."
Aarunya yoga school offers a unique approach to teacher education in the disciplines of yoga and meditation. Our mission is to share useful tools for emotional resilience, creative and critical thinking, and sentient relationship in order to restore bonds between people and the earth.
We welcome students of all ages, abilities, cultural and spiritual backgrounds, and believe in a holistic approach to practice that is rooted in the transformation of suffering into understanding.
Often used as a given name, Aarunya translates from Sanskrit to English as "the dawn". Each day we awaken to possibilities. As practitioners, we are committed to mindfulness, concentration, and insight; the awakening of consciousness in service to a healthier world. We do so through an interdisciplinary, ecological, scientific and spiritual lens.
We are located in whimsical Minturn, Colorado, however our offerings are available virtually as well.
