Kiran Kennedy

Hometown: Honolulu, Hawaii

Philosophy: It is imperative that all who teach have insight and compassion.

Classes at Pure: Mysore style ashtanga yoga

Experience: I began apprenticing with Tim Miller at the Ashtanga Yoga Center in 2002 after completing several of his teacher trainings. I have been teaching with Tim since 2003 and have assisted him in primary, second and third series teacher trainings over the years. I have attended the last few Confluences of senior ashtanga yoga teachers and assisted Tim during his presentations.

Mentors: I have been very fortunate to study directly with Tim Miller for almost 18 years, Tim was the first teacher certified by Pattabhi Jois to teach ashtanga yoga. I have also done some work with Cathy Louise Broida in Hawaii who has immense knowledge of the practice and very gifted hands on adjustment style.

Before yoga: I was born and raised in Hawaii and attending college there and obtained my registered nursing license. I worked in women's health for most of my career as a nurse. I then raised 3 children who are in the 20's now and all recent college graduates. I recently worked for the Sonima Foundation teaching yoga in the elementary schools for several years before returning back to teach at the AYC.



Kiran Kennedy instructs the following:
  • Mysore (Open)
  • "Mysore" refers to the way Ashtanga Yoga is traditionally taught in its home city of Mysore, India. This program is one of Pure’s unique and specialized offerings.

    In “Mysore” each student is taught individually; given a one-on-one lesson within a group class. This individual approach means Mysore classes are a perfect fit for new and longtime practitioners. Each and every student is guided and supported in an ongoing program that offers an incredible array of strength, flexibility, and flow resulting in a practice that detoxifies, balances, and strengthens both body and mind.

    In Mysore class, each student is encouraged to memorize the breathing/movement sequence and develop an independent yet insightfully supported practice.
