Yoga teacher, health and nutrition counselor
Kyra Anastasia discovered the power of yoga in the aftermath of a ski accident as a teenager. After healing her body through the practice, she felt a calling to share the gift of yoga with others. Over the course of more than two decades, her yoga studies have taken her across the United States, to Central America and India, and back again. Her philosophy: embrace all that life has to offer.
Kyra’s dedication to healing has inspired her to become a personal holistic health and nutrition counselor. She works with clients one-on-one to help them achieve their health and nutrition goals, and to manage issues that can be improved with simple diet and life changes. Kyra’s clients love her attention to the details of their lives and her ability to respond to their individual challenges.
Kyra’s twin passions for yoga and adventure have culminated in exotic yoga retreats. She has led students to West Virginia, Jamaica, Bhutan, Turks and Caicos, Belize, Costa Rica, Puerto Rico, and Hawaii. Most recently, she co-led the first Kripalu yoga retreat to India.
Her ability to forge connections with large groups has prompted invitations to lead numerous events. Kyra has been a guest teacher at the Iowa City Yoga Festival, and for several years she has assisted at Esalen Institute’s annual yoga festival.
