5 Question Interview @KulaYogaSD
Eddie Bustamante is the founder of Kula Yoga in Chula Vista, CA. This Saturday, October 15th from 9:00-10:30am, I will be performing Nameless Energy live at Kula Yoga with Eddie B. Join us for a soul filling morning of love!
1.) Tell me about your personal journey with yoga. Why is it important to you?
My personal yoga journey began 6 years ago. I was invited to yoga by my dad :). I didn’t know what yoga was or how it was going to change my life for the best, I just went with the (vinyasa) flow. Yoga created a higher state of consciousness by being present in the moment and trusting the process of the asanas.
Yoga is important me because I’m able to take my yoga off the mat and share it with my friends, family and loved ones. I’m able to create strength when life comes full force and breathe through the hard and stressful times. I’m able to the create balance with life, remain flexible with work and in the time of need for others.
2.) When did you first begin teaching yoga? What made you transition into a leadership position?
I became a certified yoga instructor in the spring of 2015. What made me transition into a leadership position, was when I was offered the opportunity by my good friend Richard Martinez to create my own studio. I formulated Kula Yoga and brought my team of friends who all have the same love and passion for yoga and we’ve been sharing the love since March 2016.
3.) What makes your classes unique?
My classes are unique because I teach from the heart. I encourage my students to believe in themselves by going past what the mind tells them they can or can’t do, I teach my students self confidence through breath control and to let go of any doubt or fear.
4.) How does music benefit your guidance in a yoga class?
Music helps my classes create a SOULful rhythm and flow through likes of Marvin Gaye, Bob Marley, Hummingbird Hotel ( local duo) and Cultura Profética just to name a few.
5.) Tell me about your next event and where we can follow you online.
Our next event is on Saturday November 12th from 11:00 am -1:00 pm alignment workshop lead by our instructor Natalia. You can follow us on Instagram & Facebook @kulayogasd for more info and class schedule visit our website www.kulayogasd.com.
