In Person Boutique Trainings



“Kaya’s programs for teachers are beautifully designed – significantly layered for depth yet simple and clear which has the student become experienced and confident in the material offered. Her approach is order yet natural and generally excellent in all ways.”

Jen, SRY Teacher and Gyrotonic Teacher


“Your presence is delightful, caring, easy to follow. The information is delivered in a way that allows for processing (not too fast or slow) and is filled with a light sense of genuine humor and deep wisdom. I appreciate the handouts to refer to later on with my extra notes from lectures. Every training I take with you Kaya just gets better!”

Jackie, SRY Teacher and Pilates Teacher


“Kaya’s has a soft but grounding presence. She holds a nurturing space for everyone that invites us to surrender into the asanas, into the breath, and into ourselves. I love her concise and simple directions. I love how she weaves teachings of the Sutras, Vedanta, and Upanishads into her teaching. They don’t feel random, but rather, very integrative”/span>
