Your Instructors: Kylie and Troy

Kylie

Kylie is a 500-hour certified yoga instructor, certified aerial instructor, Usui Holy Fire III Reiki Practitioner, and has over 14 years experience teaching yoga and fitness classes. Kylie’s journey into yoga began after a major back surgery left her in pain and feeling rigid. Through the discipline of yoga, Kylie found freedom from her physical pain, and fell in love with its ability to calm the mind. Her classes are empowering, heartfelt, and accommodating for all levels. Kylie received her 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training Certificate from Corepower Yoga in 2012 and went on to receive her 300 hour Yoga Teacher Training Certificate from from School of Yoga Institute in 2019.  Outside of her yoga education, Kylie earned her MFA in Writing for the Screen and Television from the USC School of Cinematic Arts. When she’s not practicing yoga, you can find Kylie out in nature, writing.
