After more than a decade of personal practice, which was the cornerstone to healing herself of PTSD and cancer, Kiara decided to become a yoga instructor in order to share its powerful healing capabilities with others.
Since becoming a yoga instructor, Kiara has taught classes in the yoga studio and gyms, at resorts, in corporate offices, juvenile centers and country clubs. She has taught to at-risk youth, celebrities, varying kinds of athletes, individual’s suffering with physical and psychological illness and to advanced and beginning yogis. She has spent years teaching students one-on-one and leading groups in classes, workshops and immersive retreats. Kiara co-created Satyam 200hr Yoga Teacher Training in 2016 and is one of the main instructors of the program. Currently, Kiara is working on curriculum for a 300hr Yoga Teacher Training “Becoming a Master Teacher & Mastering the Business of Yoga” set to launch in January 2020. Recognized by lululemon athletica as an exceptional yoga instructor, she has been a lulu ambassador since March of 2016.
Kiara’s personal practice spans twenty years and in that time she has learned from innumerable teachers. However, it was in her years working for Yoga Journal magazine that she holds most dear; her time on the Yoga Journal Events team afforded her the ability to practice and learn from all the world-renowned yoga instructors. Having multiple influencers, Kiara teaches a unique style of yoga she now dubs Ki Yoga.
Informed beyond her time on the mat, Kiara brings into her classes knowledge of Thai Massage, Aromatherapy, Reiki, Hypnotherapy and functional anatomy. She shares this eclectic knowledge with her public classes, in workshops, with private clientele and in yoga teacher trainings.
“Her passion and energy are profound! I find that I crave her class, like a soul calling. I have had only a few mentors in my life, Kiara is one of them. Her spiritual and intellectual gifts far outreach her physical self.
It wasn’t until I began my yoga teacher training with her that I realized how incredible Kiara’s teachings are. By comparison, no other yoga teacher I had taken from had the depth of knowledge that Kiara has.”
