Q+A with Kay
Where are you based out of? town + studio?
Harmony Hot Yoga, Pilates & Aerial Center – Milledgeville, GA
When + where did you first stumble into hot yoga?
In 2010, a friend gave me a 10 day challenge pass for Bikram Yoga, Redmond, WA.
Do you remember your first class? Did someone bring you or did you venture out on your own?
I reluctantly went to my first Bikram Yoga class with a friend who had given me a 10 day pass. I left the studio thinking it was the worst thing I had ever done and that I would never go back. However, something deep inside, either the challenge or how it made me feel, made me go back for 10 days in a row.
What made you go to teacher training?
I knew after I completed my 10 day challenge that I had stumbled across something really special and that I wanted to share this amazing practice with the world. I especially wanted to take it to my home in GA some day! I started practicing regularly, moved back to GA and went to teacher training as soon as my daughter started college in the Fall of 2013. After teacher training, I traveled and taught for about 2 years and then opened my own studio.
What’s your favorite thing about teaching?
I love watching students have personal breakthroughs and seeing them transform.
What’s the funniest thing that’s ever happened to you while you were teaching?
I started sneezing towards the end of teaching a class. I could hardly get the dialogue out. Everyone had a good laugh!!
Do you have other (non-hot yoga) passions?
I love taking care of my family!
If money wasn’t an issue, what would you spend the next year of your life doing?
I would travel, teach and practice all over the world!
