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.

As cheesy as it is, it’s true: it’s called a yoga practice, not a yoga perfect.
