Tyra is an American and world trained E-RYT Yoga Teacher, Yoga Therapist and Ayurvedic Masseuse from Kansas City. After retiring from rowing at North Park University and injuring herself during the Chicago Marathon in 2014, Tyra found yoga by accident. She became very close with her upstairs neighbor (who happened to be a yoga teacher), who begged Tyra to come to a class. When she finally did, she fell in love.Tyra signed up for teacher training one month after she started doing yoga. The fire of the practice lit her from the inside out and she has never looked back. 

Tyra has been managing and traveling to different yoga studios around the world to mesh East and West ideology. She has taught everyone from beginners to celebrities, empowering all of her students to take a much needed break from the stress of everyday life. Tyra has lead multiple vinyasa teacher trainings, workshops and healing for students from all around the world. She was Assistant Manager for CorePower Yoga, Lead Instructor at Ceylon Sliders in Sri Lanka and currently leads teacher trainings in Melbourne, Australia. She believes that the first thing we should all do before we move, is understand. Tyra is passionate about helping her students understand yoga, movement, and themselves.
