Students describe Kyra's classes as mindful, strong, active, and unique. With clear cues and appropriate pacing, students expand their yoga practice with creative flows that turn on mind-body awareness. She gives clear steps toward arm balances and other challenging postures to allow students to progress with confidence. She draws on yoga anatomy and physical therapy to increase not just range of motion, but strong or functional range of motion; one of her happiest moments was when a student did a squat for the first time—while weeding in her garden. There will always be a meditation and often a crystal singing bowl to help cultivate ease, equanimity, and mental focus on and off the mat. In addition to teaching yoga, Kyra is a professional Ironman triathlete, Air Force wife, and bonus mom for two teens. Subscribe to her YouTube for free classes and teaching tips.
