MBG: How/why did you first come to yoga?
AMK: I initially came to yoga for cross training, I used to leave savasana early to go on a 5 mile run. It was the physicality that I came for. It took a year and half before I could open my ears to hear the messages about the mind, body and spirit.
How would you describe your style of teaching?
Empowering students is my inspiration for teaching; guiding students into their body so they can make the choices that are healing for themselves. The classes I teach are athletic, strong and always have the breath as the most important element, then linking with movement and powerful music to tap into the prana of life. I use all these elements to uncover the most important lesson of yoga, unconditional love.
Who has inspired your teaching?
Jonny Kest is my main inspiration; he is my teacher, my source of love. Another source is teaching teacher training, watching people grow and open their heart is humbling. I am always questioning, “who is the teacher and who is the student?”
