Meet your instructor...
Kiara McBain E-RYT500, YACEP
Ki Yoga is the alchemy of Eastern philosophy and Western science. In a Ki Yoga class you’ll always find philosophy supporting physiology and science supporting tradition. Ki Yoga aims to share perennial yogic truths within the paradigm of our modern science-based Western culture. The Ki Yoga approach stands on the 5 Pillars of Practice; always providing Anatomical Sequencing, Mind-Focused Theming, Rubber Band Method Assists, Teacher-Student Mentorship and great Music.
Kiara believes yoga is for the mind as much as it is for the body. She believes everyone can practice and benefit from Ki Yoga. She has taught classes in yoga studios and gyms, at resorts, in corporate offices, juvenile centers and country clubs. She has taught to at-risk youth, celebrities, varying kinds of athletes, individual’s suffering with physical and psychological illness and to advanced and beginning yogis. She has spent more than 3,200 hours teaching students one-on-one and leading groups in classes, workshops, teacher trainings and retreats.
Kiara began creating and leading yoga teacher trainings in 2016. She now provides online teacher trainings, Ki Yoga 200 & 300 trainings in-person in Santa Cruz, CA and a 3-week immersive Samasthala 200hr training in Bali. Recognized by lululemon athletica as an exceptional yoga instructor, she has been a lululemon ambassador twice since March of 2016.
Believing in the power of alchemy, Kiara compliments her Ki Yoga with Tension & Trauma Releasing Exercises (TRE), Massage Therapy and Heartmath Institute Techniques.
