She was aspiring to spice up her massage business plus didn’t want go back to school for very long and desired to bring something new to the community.
This past July, she enrolled and completed a five week Yoga course in Edmonton, with seven other ladies.
Kayla first went to a yoga class a few years ago, initially for physical practice and quickly fell in love. She realized it’s much more than a physical practice.
“It really draws you in; it is about mental, physical and personal,” she proudly said.
Kayla explained “nothing fires her up anymore so to speak, I am calm all the time and learned to shrug little things that used to bother me off. It gives you a better outlook on life. If I don’t do yoga, I miss it.”
She started offering daily classes in September, every day of the week. Her business changed names from Massage by Kayla, started in 2005, to Mindful Movement Massage and Yoga.
She instructs a group of 25 ladies and men too, anyone over the age of 13 year olds is welcome. Classes are Monday and Wednesday evenings at 6:30 pm and Tuesday and Thursday mornings at 9 am at the community hall.
Kayla would like to welcome two new staff, massage therapist Bridget Campbell and registered reflexologist Carol Koester. The trio all work together cooperatively, sharing shifts and office space.
Bridget is completing finishing her training for a registered massage therapist in March. She is also working with Leanne Armson, Elemental Balance on Tuesday and Wednesdays.
Carol brings six and half year’s reflexology experience and is working mornings and evenings at the salon.
“Everything is going good; everyone is very nice and helpful. Clients are great and are referring cliental,” said Carol.
“Kayla is incredible and Sheila Gilmour, owner of Urban Style Salon. Both are very, very supportive. Thank you for planting a seed, and opening doors to offer more to the community of Fox Creek.”
Yoga is a commonly known generic term for physical, mental, and spiritual disciplines which originated in ancient India. Specifically, yoga is one of the six āstika schools of Hindu philosophy.
Hindu monks brought yoga to the West in the late 19th century. In the 1980s, yoga became popular as a physical system of health exercises across the Western world. Many studies have tried to determine the effectiveness of yoga as a complementary intervention for cancer, schizophrenia, asthma and heart patients. Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yoga
