Kyla was raised in New Jersey and moved to New York City in 2007 to attend Marymount Manhattan College for Theater Performance. At age nineteen Kyla walked into her first Bikram Class at Bikram Yoga NYC UES. Little did she know that six years later she would be teaching class in that very room. Kyla fell in love with the practice and the challenge to take care of herself mentally and physically. She was forced to look herself in the eye every day and be present through overcoming obstacles, gaining balance and learning to let go. It wasn’t until Kyla found herself in the hot room more than the audition room that she knew it was time to get her certification. She completed Teacher Training Spring 2015 in Thailand. Kyla strives to inspire and encourage students to discover happiness and self love every time they step on their mat.
