As a young teenager K-Lea grew up around Yoga. Her mother, June LaSalvia, was a certified instructor and her first teacher. K-Lea narrowed her focus solely to Iyengar Yoga during pregnancy with her daughter, Chelsea, and began training for Iyengar certification and teaching full-time in 1990. K-Lea attained her first Iyengar certification in 1999. She was the founder/owner of two Yoga studios in Nashville, TN. She is currently Iyengar Certified at the Intermediate Junior 2 Level and has made several trips to Pune, India to study with the Iyengars. Her personal background in gymnastics and certification in body-oriented transpersonal psychotherapy, meditation and breath-work have enriched her teaching immensely. K-Lea has taught special events for Yoga Journal and appears in the Gaiam Living Arts Video "Conditioning for Life”. She has led several workshops in the United States and Canada. K-Lea continues her professional development with many inspiring teachers and attends Iyengar conventions.
