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.

If you don’t know what tech neck is then you’re either super lucky to be able to avoid this horrible condition, or you’re simply unaware of the name, and you actually have it. Whoops, sorry.  I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but chances are if you work at a laptop for most […]

If you’ve been to a yoga class at your local studio, or online, chances are you’ve heard the teacher mention chakras at some point, right? Even if you hear the word chakras thrown around in the yoga world, there’s often not much of an explanation about what a chakra is, or how it works.  Don’t […]

Have you ever taken a yoga class before? If you have…and especially if you’ve taken my classes…then chances are you were asked to create an intention for your practice.  While it’s a common component of many yoga classes, that doesn’t necessarily mean you knew what the heck you were supposed to do.  So, if you […]

One of the things I love most about yoga is that it truly feels like an infinite practice in that there’s always new shapes, transitions, and movements to explore.  I know what you’re thinking: aren’t there only a finite number of yoga poses?
