WHO ME?

I am Kia.  I am a yoga instructor in the Denver area with a background in Ecology as a recovering academic. I live here with my husband and two kids (a toddler and a newborn) striving for our balance while still enjoying the heck out of life.  I like to be useful so love sharing the mind/body connection I have found in yoga as well as some of the other aspects of life that I consider healthy.  I share simple actions to be green, mindful, proactive with health, involved with community, and anything to increase your laughter and/or hug quotient.  Sometimes I’ll get my panties in a bunch and the left-brain/more analytical side of me will come out especially when I think consumers are led astray.

I yoga for a week at a dude ranch. Cowboy yoga, yeehaw!

Yoga at a Dude Ranch, heck ya! That was a fun retreat to teach at.

I am currently working on my personal trainer certification (I was an athlete in college so have that background to refer to) while I run, bend, hike, cycle, swim, and strength train my body through my life.  I also love to cook real food because it comes easy to me and I have a ubiquotous food allergy in cane sugar.  I am definitely not a “better living through chemistry” type of fitness fanatic. I am holistic health seeker with relying on as few toxic products as possible while being mindful of resources at my disposal.

  1. Hi Kia. Just thought I’d say hello to you. Why? Well, because I was looking to buy a domain for my son and that led me to stumble upon your page. Why? Well, check this out. It may amuse you. I promise this isn’t spam. I don’t eat it and I don’t dish it out either. http://www.youngergenerations.net

  2. Hi Kia!

    It’s Cari from Title Nine Cherry Creek! I was just perusing your blog and I wanted to see how your bra is doing? It was so great to work with you, I hope you are enjoying your summer!

    Thanks!
    Cari
