THE BLOG

I thought you might want to meet me before you dive in.
So, hi!

i'm Kayla

I’m a teacher, writer, and entrepreneur who travels the world with my wife and my pack of dogs. I dreamed of becoming a writer and teacher ever since I was a young girl. Little did I know, these two passions would lead me to blog writing and yoga teaching! I adore education in all forms, and I love to express myself through words—so here we are.

By Kayla Nielsen / February 27, 2024 / 0 Comments

I’ve been doing yoga and meditation for a decade now, so you could say that I’ve taught my fair share of meditation to all levels of practitioners.  My retreat center draws in yogis, surfers, and travelers from around the world.
