Kiana first found yoga in her early teen years as a way to compliment her athletic pursuits. Through the physical aspects that yoga offered her: flexibility, strength, and challenge, she soon fell in love with the practice. Self curiosity opened her eyes and soul to deeper parts of Yoga, learning emotional and energetic peace and stability. Not only has this practice taught her how to slow down, recenter, and be present in the moment, it also shown her inner strength. Kiana began teaching Yoga in 2017 after graduating from her 200 hour yoga teacher training with her teachers Shanon Buffington and Charly Faulkner. Dedicated to expand her knowledge and share it with others, she is currently enrolled in Practice Yoga Austin's 300 hour advanced yoga teacher training working to achieve her 500 hour certification. Her lighthearted energy and love for Yoga makes each one of her classes a fulfilling experience that focuses on self reflection, mindful movement, self love, proper alignment, props, and breath-body-mind connection!
Kori first discovered Bikram and Baptiste power yoga in 2001, and then moved into other practices including vinyasa flow, yin and restorative. In 2012, after navigating the challenge of her husbands multiple deployments overseas, she decide to get her 200ERYT certification with Gioconda Parker as a means to deepen her personal practice and relieve stress. In 2013 she went on to get her certification as a “Relax and Renew” trainer with Judith Hansen Lasater, and became a “Warriors at Ease” teacher, using yoga as a tool for military-related trauma. She has been teaching for seven years and has continued to volunteer as a yoga instructor with military organizations including The American Widow Project and the Austin Veterans Center. She has a passion for helping people build a foundation for a steady practice and creating space for students to find their ease. When Kori is not teaching yoga, she enjoys spending time with her family, designing and making jewelry, and recently began pursuing an Occupational Therapy Assistant degree.
