Kiley Schottenfeld

Teacher | Student

I am a passionate E-RYT 500, YACEP Yoga Teacher and Teacher Trainer from California. After graduating from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo with a Bachelor of Science degree in Animal Science, a pre-veterinary concentration, and an equine science minor, I founded my wellness platform, Kekoa Yoga. A few fun facts: I am a writer, I have been a preschool teacher, I love raising and sales prepping Thoroughbred racehorses, and I am currently pursuing my Master’s Degree in HR.

My passion for practicing and teaching yoga was created from a desire to help myself and to help others find freedom in their pain. My saying goes, “It’s not about living a pain-free life; it’s about living in freedom with your pain.” As a yoga teacher and teacher trainer, my goal is to create a space for the body, mind, heart, and soul to listen and grow. I believe that yoga is practiced on the mat with the intention to be embodied in life. I genuinely believe that yoga nourishes a special kind of strength within our souls, a power that gives us the energy to live in the now, learn from the past, and have faith in the future. Yoga is the gift that keeps on giving, and it is a gift that I want to share with many for years to come.
