Kira is an exceptionally gifted teacher and mentor, and I always leave her classes feeling like I’ve consciously worked and enlightened my body. I adore her, especially her off-beat sense of humor. What is most impressive is her attention to alignment and physiology. A lot of yoga classes leave me feeling I’ve gone through the motions–and often, too many of the same motions. Kira is always inventive, curious, and nimble with her intelligence. She is an inspiration and a gift! – Claudia S.
In over more than 15 years of practice, I have learned that yoga is much more than just a physical exercise. It is a practice of compassionate discipline, breath, meditation, energy work, as well as asana (yoga poses). The interrelated practices that connect and align us and bring stability in our bodies, as well as in our lives, are testimony to the definition of yoga, which in Sanskrit means to yoke or to unite. The practice of yoga is indeed to unite all the parts of our body, mind and spirit in order to create in our lives balance, stability and peacefulness. In my yoga classes and in our private sessions you will experience a unique blend of strong alignment based asana practice, mindful meditation, Kira’s Bliss essential oils, and pranayama (breath work). The meditation you will experience in all my classes is not trying to transform you from being who you already are. Instead you will become more aware of exactly who you are, and your truth in every moment. The meditation practice, I teach, will help you hone an ability to be present in life no matter how challenging.
All my classes will link your practice on the mat to your life. The yoga practice, to be effective, does not start and finish on our mats, but is part of everything we do, and everything we are. Therefore, you will often find meaningful friendships and human connections being formed in classes.
