Kayla works fulltime in the Back Bay as a CPA. However, fitness has always been her passion. Her love for fitness developed when she ran her first road race at eight years old. She has continued to run through her adult life, participating in multiple half marathons and the 2018 Boston marathon. Like most avid runners, she began experiencing muscle tightness and fatigue, which brought her to her first yoga. As she became more familiar with the practice and her technique improved, she realized that yoga was very difficult and hardly just a means to become more flexible. She found herself feeling stronger and healthier after each yoga class, and as a result, it quickly became her favorite form of exercise.
Although the physical component of yoga is very important to Kayla, it was the mental benefits she attained that made her fall in love with the practice. Yoga emphasizes the importance of presence, positivity, and knowing that you have the ability to direct your thoughts and actions. Kayla works ever day to carry those principles into her daily life when interacting with others and herself. Yoga has helped her become a more optimistic, patient, and self-accepting person. She hopes to not onlyoffer students a class that challenges them physically, but also to provide them with the space to improve their thought process, and approach life from a more positive stance.
