Kayleigh came to yoga in 2007 as a way to balance the stress of her classical music career. What began as a curiosity became a serious passion, and a salve for performance-related injuries, competitive stress, and assault. She completed her 200-hour teacher training in 2011, under the tutelage of David Vendetti and Todd Skoglound at South Boston Yoga, and has studied in the vinyasa, yin, forrest, anusura, and iyengar traditions. Her classes fuse a keen attention to alignment and injury prevention, as well as a playful approach to building strength, opening the heart, and building awareness.
As a classical violist, she has an interest and sensitivity in preventing performing arts’ injuries and stresses, and helps other musicians build confidence under pressure, gain strength, and improve their playing. She also provides a safe space for women to feel positive about their bodies, and helps others to feel strong, powerful, and beautiful just as they are.
This past summer, Kayleigh taught at the Spoleto Music Festival in Charleston, worked with teenagers in Tunisia, and visual artists in Wyoming. She recently moved to Reno, NV, and is delighted to join a new community of yogis. She is currently teaching at Pure Yoga Reno and the Studio.

“She works us hard and gave us all we could handle, but also gave us options when some of us could not go there! She is a fun teacher and we hope she sticks around here for a long time!”
