    KK is quirky, goofy & tons of fun – but is also a serious, dedicated teacher for serious, dedicated students. She inspires fierce devotion in her students' practices and lives, and weaves in a wealth of knowledge of other modalities – astrology, pagan traditions, herbs – to her classes. Plus she plays the best music EVER.

  20. Knewreality says:

    It’s exciting to see this dedicated practitioner and teacher on the YJ cover. Looking forward to when she contributes some of her eloquent writings on Elephantjournal.

    Gorgeous cover!!!! It even manages to capture a smidgen of KK's incredible light! I am so grateful for KK's inspirational way of teaching. She is so balanced in that she is very real, true to herself and to her students, serious about the practice and incredibly playful and funny. I am constantly reminded of why I practice yoga as I learn more and more from her! So happy that elephant journal is sharing the love!

  32. KKshakti says:

    Leila, thank you for your sweet and awesome comment!

  33. KKshakti says:

    Its an extraordinary blessing to have such a talented, creative, funny, dedicated, and committed group of students! Some of you I see every day, or several times a week, and some of you live outside of the Bay Area, but there's a reason I call you the Kosmic Kula! You keep the conversation going! Your bright minds and open hearts and strong adhikara make it possible for me to teach from a place of integrity and authenticity. And witnessing and participating in your continued deepening, refinement, and transformation is an incredible delight. You rock, Kosmic Kula! XO

  34. feistydove says:

    It is hard to put into words why you are such a great teacher…the places you lead people to in their bodies and hearts is extraordinary and hard to define in mere English. Just go and experience, I say!!!

  35. candicegarrett says:

    opened my new YJ with pleasure. I don't know her in person but it was SO nice to see someone covered that I *could* know in person. She is beautiful, grace-FULL and lovely. Love, love, love it.

  36. We love you KK – keep being your awesome self. 🙂

    took a class from KK at yoga tree in SF last week. then, at the airport, saw the YJ cover and was like "hey, that was my teacher this morning!" it was neat to support her style and refreshing individuality.
