Kira’s passion for teaching has evolved from her deep relationship with learning. Kira finds herself in the roles of both student and teacher as she seeks to share her love of yoga with others in her community. Kira teaches from her experience with nature and her embodiment of the transformative practice of yoga. She offers organic and creative practices woven with themes present in nature.
Kira began her life-long relationship with yoga in 2013 as a form of mental and physical recovery after sustaining a serious ski injury. Cultivation of a strong home practice and the search for a yoga community for several years, led her to find her home at Mountain Soul Yoga in 2016. After practicing with founder and owner of Mountain Soul Yoga, Julia Clarke, for over a year, she decided to take the next step in her yogic journey by completing the Colorado School of Yoga 200-hour Teacher Training with Juila Clarke and Gina Caputo in November 2017.
In addition to her committed yoga practice, Kira is also a full-time Grade 4 teacher at June Creek Elementary, and will be offering yoga as an after school enrichment opportunity for her students. Kira is also a student of the Spanish language program at Colorado Mountain College where she is pursuing her dream of becoming a bi-literate teacher for Eagle County Schools. Kira finds great personal fulfillment in the impact that her work has on her students, their families, our community, and society at large. Kira strives to inspire a deep love for learning in students of all ages and backgrounds, as she believes the act of learning does not discriminate, does not belittle, and has no bounds.
Kira prioritizes her family, her yoga practice, and her exploration of nature. She lives with her husband, Justin, and their dog, in close proximity to her parents and siblings.
She enjoys hiking, stand up paddle boarding, camping, rock climbing, skiing, cooking, drinking wine, reading, watching Netflix, listening to music, and is learning to play chess.
