OULA was founded by mother, choreographer, and all-around badass, Kali Lindner. A firm believer in the power of experience over exercise, Kali delivers an exhilarating mind/body practice that ignites spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical magic. The result is a transformative approach to intentional wellness that’s FUN!
I can feel myself getting swept into the chaos, uncertainty and general fatigue of these times.
To find my way back to balance, I keep coming back to the need to balance the 4 elements- EARTH / WATER / FIRE / AIR- within myself. Daily rituals like getting your feet directly onto the earth, taking a warm bath with essential oils, lighting a candle and walking in the crisp fall air can help. I also, time and time again, am reminded of why OULA is so powerful in how we use our playlist to balance these elements within ourselves and through the music.
Did you know that all OULA playlists are curated to journey through the elements?
🌱We start with EARTH- finding our sense of place in our bodies and in our surroundings. Letting go of the moments that came before this one and grounding into the now. The feet meet the earth, intentionally, and the dance begins. The music helps us to become fully embodied and present.🌱
🌊We then move to WATER- the movement and the music travel further up the body and the hips become activated and we tap into our sensuality and sexuality. Like the ebb and flow of water, we invite the undulations to move through us and with us.🌊
🔥Next comes the heat of FIRE- asking us to feel the burn of not only the high intensity movements, but also to burn emotionally through everything that is feeling pent up, stuck, or wanting to be released. We understand that fire is transformative and in order to breakthrough to the other side, we must let it burn.🔥
🌬And finally, after the fire has burned through and cleared out space for the new, we have AIR. We experience a sense of lightness, an opening, a sweet release. With hands and hearts open, we reflect on the journey we've taken and feel lighter, more balanced and we can return to our center, which is love.🌬
As you dance with me, I will invite you to listen to certain lyrics, invite different sensations and reflect on where you are at in your own body to get the most out of this journey through the elements. The playlist won't look much different than a usual playlist, because like I said, ALL playlists are created in this way."
