Born and raised in the heart of New York City, USA she started her practice 7 years ago. There was something about yoga that kept bringing her back on her mat. It was a place where she always found peace and tranquility regardless of what was happening in her life. For a few years, she continued practicing with master teachers while working in the corporate world.
After studying in yoga schools in the West, Kay left her career to begin her journey in the East to deepen her understanding in yoga and meditation. At the same time, she had a mission to serve, love, and give back to the people and communities in Asia. She spent all her time volunteering in ashrams, temples, monasteries, orphanages, and animal camps in Thailand, India, Vietnam, China and other countries. Wherever she traveled to, she taught yoga to those whom she met along the way.
A big part of Kay's teachings comes from the year she spent volunteering full time in yoga ashrams under a Gurukula system. For a whole year, she followed a strict and disciplined yogic lifestyle in the ashrams where she selflessly taught yoga and assisted for teacher trainings. Not only did that deepen her knowledge in traditional hatha yoga, but it also helped her develop unconditional love, patience, and compassion for her students.
Kay has completed trainings from various schools including Sivananda International Vedanta Center ( TTC & Adv. TTC ) , Dharma, Kripalu, Andiappan, Anti-Gravity and Universal Yoga.
These courses strengthened her knowledge in teaching a wide array of yoga styles to practitioners of all levels. To complement her teachings in Yoga, Kay studied Thai Yoga Massage and has completed over 300+ hours of training with Lotus Palm in Canada and Thai Massage School of Chiang Mai in Thailand. Aside from Yoga, she has also taken intensive courses in Pranayama, Meditation, Reiki, and Ayurveda. Kay brings a holistic approach in her teachings by using healing, therapeutic, and breathing techniques to suit the needs of her students.
"Health is wealth. Peace of mind is happiness. Yoga shows the way." This beautiful quote by Swami Vishnudevananda deeply resonates with Kay. Through her worldly experiences, she sees how Yoga can benefit everyone by improving the physical, mental, and spiritual well being of each individual.
With much love and joy, she safely instructs her students to flow mindfully through her inspirational classes, bringing their body mind and soul in balance. Kay is forever grateful for all the teachers who have planted seeds of wisdom in her and for all the angels who have guided her to where she is today. She truly believes that her life's work and greatest passion is to share the gift of Yoga to all. See more photos and other events by this presenter
