KB's Yoga Philosophy
"Having a deeper understanding of our own mind and body makes us more mindful of how our thoughts influence our actions. Once we start understanding the deeper layers of this connection, we automatically start connecting with the world around us in a different way. We discover more about who we are, on and off the yoga mat. We start to focus more on the present moment- and being fully present in every moment is one of the most powerful tools we can posses as human beings".
Keisha has been teaching yoga since 2007 and enjoys working with students of all levels and abilities. Keisha began her movement career as a dancer in NYC at age 19. After a knee injury, Keisha began to look for solutions to increase mobility and to stabilize her overstressed joints. This search led her to discover yoga as a self-care practice. After practicing yoga on and off for several years, Keisha began to study classical Hatha yoga. As a part of her studies, she traveled to India to study yoga and stayed for 6 months to teach yoga at the Sivananda Ashram in Kerala India. Ever since experiencing the transformative effects of yoga on the mind and body, she has committed her career to teaching others these practices.
Keisha teaches her students to challenge themselves during class while maintaining the mental clarity required and to find the integrity in each pose. While teaching, she focuses on giving her students space to explore each posture and to expand the edges of their yoga practice. Keisha enjoys teaching classes that are grounded in the students' personal awareness, driven by the mind-body connection, and enhanced by soulful modern-day mantras.
In addition to teaching traditional yoga, she has worked with companies and schools throughout New York City to help create yoga and meditation programs. Keisha is currently pursuing her Master's of Science in Social Entrepreneurship and a Graduate Certificate in Marketing at the University of Southern California (Marshall School of Business).
