Keya Merah Nkonoki
Keya Nkonoki, (E-RYT, RPYT, RCYT) is a joyful and encouraging Pregnancy & Postpartum Yoga Specialist, Certified Birth Doula and Birth Educator, with a passion for nurturing women through their entire birth process for over 14 years.
Keya’s signature prenatal sequences are a mix of yoga styles, restoratives, breathwork, and meditation. Her classes help to build strength, balance, renewal, and depth of awareness in a rapidly changing body. Each class is different, with the common thread of a slow flow, utilizing plenty of props and pauses.
Her yoga training is in Hatha-Vinyasa (Yoga Works 200 hr w/ Annie Carpenter in 2008 and Yoga Works 300 hr w/ Birgitte Kristen in 2016), Kundalini Yoga (KRI 200 hr w/ Krishna Kaur in 2005), Pregnancy Yoga (Golden Bridge 90 hr w/ Gurmukh Kaur in 2004) and Kids Yoga (75 hr Yoga for Youth training in 2003 w/ Krishna Kaur).
Keya lives in Culver City with her husband and two children, whom she credits the wake up call to live with more yogic awareness. You may catch her riding her bike around town with kids in tow!
To give back, she enjoys carving out time to work with pregnant teens in under served populations around Los Angeles.
