Kiara McBain

0725 smallTeaching yoga since 2011, Kiara has taught classes in the yoga studio and gyms, at
resorts, in corporate offices, juvenile centers and country clubs. She has taught to at-risk
youth, celebrities, varying kinds of athletes, individual’s suffering with physical and
psychological illness and to advanced and beginning yogis. Recognized by lululemon
athletica as an exceptional yoga instructor, she has been a lulu ambassador since
March of 2016. Kiara’s personal practice spans nearly twenty years and in that time she
has learned from innumerable teachers. However, it was in her years working for Yoga
Journal magazine that she holds most dearly; her time on the Yoga Journal Events team
afforded her the ability to practice and learn from all the world-renowned yoga
Over the years, Kiara has studied various modalities that have helped hone the unique
form of yoga she teaches: Ki Yoga.  The name was born from the Japanese concept of
life-force energy and her own personal nickname, Ki. Working with the Ki in her classes,
she has created a method that supercharges the practice by combining subtle energy
techniques to the yoga postures we know and love. Kiara’s classes vary in intensity, but
always emphasize alignment through a keen understanding of functional anatomy. The
alignment she seeks to find in her student’s bodies she also seeks to find in their subtle
energy body too, bringing the greatest sense of wellbeing and balance to her students.
In addition to working with private clients and group classes, Kiara is also co-founder
and Lead Instructor of Satyam Yoga Teacher Training. A 200-hour training program
aimed at bringing unique, informed new teachers into the world.
