Comments from 2013 participants
of Iyengar Yoga with K-Lea at Hollyhock

"I began taking yoga classes from K-Lea when she opened 12South Yoga in 1999. I have always thought of her as an inspired teacher and have over the years seen her grow and blossom as one of the most amazingly intuitive teachers I have ever had the fortune to experience.

When, in July 2013, I was able to attend her workshop at Hollyhock Retreat Centre, I was very excited for a week of great classes in such a beautiful, wild place. I was not disappointed. Her style and teaching, as well as her presence, radiated a deep understanding and grace that is nothing less than spiritual. Taking consideration for each student, K-Lea's classes build and flow, pose to pose based on subtle and complex themes which takes you on an inward journey to a place you barely knew existed. I felt so deeply alive at the end of this magical week.”

"The natural beauty and intentional serenity of Hollyhock created an atmosphere of peace and possibility perfect for the practice of yoga. K-Lea artfully articulated the study of yoga with an intuitive understanding of both the subject and her students. Her teaching, firmly rooted in her own self-study, was creative, compassionate, and uniquely interpretive. The Iyengar Yoga Intensive at Hollyhock was not just a wonderful yoga experience; it was a wonderful life experience."
