We take you inside the Logan Square studio of Tula Yoga, home to the folks behind our Autumn Grounding series.
An oasis of serenity, Tula Yoga
is a Logan Square studio devoted to promoting a friendly, positive environment to practice yoga. Owner Maile Wicklander started practicing yoga after the birth of her second child, and felt intimidated by some studios she visited. “Yoga’s kind of a strange thing for some people,” she says. “I wanted to create a space that was overall welcoming, non-intimidating, comfortable: a place where you can find friends.”
Tula offers a variety of classes, many of which are beginner-focused and some that are heated, if you like to work up a good sweat on your mat. Every Friday night is Happy Hour Yoga, a 60-minute class followed by a cocktail hour where students can have a glass of wine and enjoy the yoga buzz. There are also Baby & Me yoga classes and family classes available for parents who want to enjoy a sun salutation with their little ones. “We do a lot of barking in downward dog,” says Maile with a smile.
The space itself is peaceful, clean, and bright. A chic boutique, featuring colorful yoga wear by Tanya-b
, sits outside the quiet studio space, and allows for a friendly meet-up after class. This fall marked Tula Yoga’s first anniversary in Logan Square. We hope there are many more to come.
Tula Yoga and The Urbaness are joining forces to bring you Autumn Grounding, a keeping calm series to help you ease into the fall season. Looking for a way to relax? Check out our Beginner Yoga Tips
