Her yoga training is in Hatha-Vinyasa (Yoga Works 200 hr w/ Annie Carpenter in 2008 and Yoga Works 300 hr w/ Birgitte Kristen in 2016), Kundalini Yoga (Kundalini Research Institute 200 hr w/ Krishna Kaur in 2005) Keya is also certified to teach Pregnancy Yoga (Golden Bridge 90 hr w/ Gurmukh Kaur in 2004) and Kids Yoga (75 hr Yoga for Youth training in 2003 w/ Krishna Kaur).  Her biggest joy is carving out time to work with pregnant teens in under served populations around Los Angeles through an organization called Yoga for Youth.  
 
Keya has been consistently working with pregnant families for the past 13 years, and lives in Culver City with her husband and two children, whom she credits the wake up call to live with more yogic awareness. You may catch her riding her bike around town with kids in tow! Her favorite book for expecting moms is “Birthing From Within” by Pam England.
