Kayla originates from West Newbury, MA and currently lives in Melrose. After being introduced to yoga as a teen, Kayla has seen the yoga practice carry through and support her in many stages of life. She loves that yoga is a creative expression of movement while also being an exploration of the self and the greater world around us. As a teacher, her classes are influenced by her experience in creativity and the arts, psychology, and her time spent in the corporate world. She enjoys supporting students as they learn and explore the proper alignment of each pose while helping them restore, relax, and sooth the nervous system. In addition to teaching yoga, Kayla works full-time at a holistic health store in Porter Square called Cambridge Naturals. There, she works as a supplements buyer and in customer service helping customers navigate holistic and natural health products. Kayla finds joy in connecting with each customer as it feeds her constant curiosity, love for learning and love for authentic connection with people. Her love for yoga, essential oils, community, holistic health and natural products was sparked by her teen-yoga instructor, Allison Jones, her high school health teacher, and her Aunt Patty.
