MEET KAYLA

Kayla Hersperger is a Pittsburgh-based yoga teacher, meditation instructor, and essential oils educator. She inspires her students to integrate the wisdom of yoga into daily life through breath, meditation, oils, and spiritual guidance.


In her vinyasa classes, you will find creative sequencing inspired by fire and music, always linked with an intention and supported with essential oil. Kayla's classes are challenging and fun, providing a safe space for students to try new things and explore the boundaries of their practice. She offers options for beginners but, unless a class is specifically described as "all levels," some vinyasa experience is highly recommended.

Her day job is at Slippery Rock University where she works in marketing and recruitment. You can usually find her walking her dog, Cici, around the Northside of Pittsburgh.
