"After following the Yogi lifestyle of pranayama, asana practice, meditation, and healthy eating it has changed my life in every way possible! Finding your true self is the most liberating and free feeling I believe everyone needs a little more of."
"Come join us in nature, and let your Yoga journey begin! Life is what you make it..."
"I took my first yoga class with Bohemian Bliss at the age of 56, and it has made me feel so much better. The stretching and movements help my back and neck pain, help me sleep better, and improve my stress levels. Kandra modifies my class according to what areas I need to work on and how I am feeling that week. Yoga in the park was a lot of fun and I'm looking forward to attending again this spring. Kandra really understands the mind and body connection and she has helped me improve my health." - Vicky, July 2018
"I had such a great experience with Bohemian Bliss Yoga at Lavender Blu! Kandra is such an amazing yoga instructor and I really enjoyed her positive vibe. Thanks so much Kandra! Also I just love this location...such beauty!"

"I love being one with nature!! Definitely a great experience , doing yoga in the woods is better then being inside a studio!! The smoothie and the energy balls are delicious!! I hope it continues in the fall/ autumn!! I will definitely join next summer!! - Angie, August 2018
"I attended my first outdoor by the water yoga session for this year. I loved being outside, hearing the water and still practicing social distancing. Bohemian Bliss limited the number of participants so we didn't have to worry about being too close. The instructor was great. Can't wait to do another class." - Jackie, July 2020
"Bohemian Bliss Yoga is a fantastic fitness offering. I began taking classes outdoors in Summer 2020. The consistent high quality programming kept me wanting more! The staff are super friendly to new participants and they encourage you to improve no matter your skill level. I stuck with the classes for 12 consecutive weeks! My flexibility and wellbeing increased significantly and I can certainly say that I gained a new love for Yoga. There are still so many other programs and events to explore! Bohemian Bliss Yoga is not just a fitness and wellness offering it is a positive community to be apart of that is relevant and consistently keeps you engaged." - Cassie, January 2021
“Kay is a true inspiration. She is the type of instructor/mentor who inspires you to find your motivation and embrace every challenge. She has a contagious energy of optimism about her which makes every session enjoyable. I have had the opportunity to work with Kay both as a fitness client and as a promotional supplier to her yoga business. I grow more inspired from every interaction with her and I always look forward to our next session or project.” - Dawn, March 2019
"I loved my experience participating in Yoga in the Woods! It’s a great way to spend time outdoors when the weather is warm, and get involved in the yoga community. I leave every session feeling invigorated and ready to tackle my day!" - Katharine, March 2019
Finding Bohemian Bliss has been a true blessing this summer. Outdoor yoga in absolutely spectacular locations (beach & flower/lavender farms) has renewed my mind, body and soul after a long 16 months of isolation. The yogis are well trained and knowledgeable in different aspects of yoga - more than just the physical part (asanas). I look forward to more classes through the fall and possibly taking part in the weekend retreat. These classes nourish me far more than the ones at my regular gym (which are really good too). Thank you very much Bohemian Bliss!!! I'm so grateful.

Yogi K ran a private outdoor bachelorette yoga session and I can’t say enough good things about the experience. She was extremely friendly, mindful of those who haven’t done yoga before, and really read the energy of the group. The whole party enjoyed the experience and we would recommend to anyone looking for a unique, welcoming, and blissful outdoor yoga experience. - Avery, August 2021
