Kiley Holliday is a New York City based yoga teacher, wellness counselor, and certified Tea Master. The practice of yoga, in her view, is a means to heal the body and focus the mind in order to maintain a relative state of equanimity. Born in Los Angeles, she spent her early years training as a competitive figure skater before moving east to attend college at New York University. After several years characterized by extreme bouts of sitting in the library, she turned to yoga to regain the strength and flexibility she’d had as a young athlete. In 2007, she left graduate school to become a yoga teacher and hasn’t looked back.
Always accompanied by an inspiring playlist, Kiley’s classes emphasize precise physical alignment while increasing strength and flexibility within the framework of an innovative vinyasa sequence. She strives to honestly assess the strengths and limitations of her students and offers instruction designed to help practitioners maximize their potential both on and off the mat. Kiley is certified E-RYT 500 by Yoga Alliance, and has studied under Dana Flynn, Ana Forrest, and Tiffany Cruikshank, as well as numerous other talented teachers in Los Angeles and NYC. She teaches hot power yoga, acrobatic vinyasa flow, and yoga for athletes both privately and at her home studio, Pure Yoga, in addition to leading retreats and workshops around the world. She has been featured in numerous publications, including Shape, the Fashion Spot, the New York Times, and Lauren Lipton’s Yoga Bodies book. Her writing has appeared in Yoga Journal.
