About Me

My name is Kayla Nielsen. I am the founder of Go Light Our World (GLOW), which is a non-profit organization that diminishes poverty with solar solutions. I am also the founder of Kindred Connections, a charitable organization serving mistreated animals around the world. I am currently implementing projects across Africa, Asia, and India. In addition to running GLOW and KC, I am also a traveling yoga teacher. My teaching styles & specialties are: dynamic vinyasa flows, arm balance & inversion workshops, back bending workshops, partner yoga therapeutics, yin, meditation & visualization. I am a dedicated Karma Yogi, in that the majority of my global retreats are fundraisers for GLOW's solar projects within impoverished communities . I am often found upside down, adventuring, or mermaiding somewhere around the world.

This trip was magical! Before this retreat I had practiced yoga maybe 4 hours my entire life. Kayla and Cait made me feel welcomed and confident. Through their empowering sessions I was able to push my body in ways I never thought possible. All of the women at the retreat were incredible. The atmosphere was one filled with love happiness and trust. I felt free to come as I was, shed parts of me that I no longer needed, and grow. This is a truly life changing experience that I have not stopped recommending to anyone who will listen. Kayla created a sanctuary where all were welcomed and no one left the same. I am already counting down until next year!
It was an amazing experience that is still impacting my life. I thought it was going to be hard for me because I had never before practiced yoga but Kayla and Cait were awesome. I didn't feel uncomfortable or that I wasn't doing what I was supposed to do, I felt free, doing my best on my own pace. I felt in peace, able to silent my thoughts for seconds for me was a huge accomplished. Connected with myself and with the girls in a way I never ever thought I could. I feel lighter, my heart does, my expectations of myself. Im so grateful with Kayla and Cait for this extraordinary experience, zero regrets! Thanks so much for be dedicated to help so many women to heal, to love themselves.

Amazing! Kayla was so helpful and welcoming the entire time. Based on the itinerary I wasn’t sure if there were enough planned activities but once we were there, the environment was so relaxed and friendly that there was always some activity to join. I also loved getting to hear Kayla’s work through GLOW. I highly recommend this retreat to anyone wanting fun and relaxation.

My retreat with GLOW in Portugal was incredible! I went into this experience with zero expectations and left feeling fulfilled and so inspired. From the very beginning, Kayla was clear that this was OUR time...She was flexible with the schedule, which made every day comfortable and stress-free. Kayla herself is an amazing teacher/human and made the retreat feel effortless! Her fellow teachers Rivka and Sarah and her photographer Annie added so much great energy and light to the week! (Seriously...Such a great group of females!) So, if you've been thinking about going on one of Kayla's retreats... DO IT. I can honestly say this is one of those life changing, soul lifting experiences that I will forever be grateful for. Can't wait for the next one!
