Kiki Haga
200hr Certified | Mat Pilates & Reformer Pilates certified

Kiki received her 200 hr yoga certification in 2011 and shortly after began a private 6-month apprenticeship training for mat & reformer Pilates. She currently teaches publicly and privately in Newport Beach full time and specializes in abdominal/core development, myofascial stretching and proper exercise alignment.

Favorite Yoga Move: 

Downward facing dog. You get so much for one pose: spine elongation, shoulder/chest opening, hamstring length, cervical/neck traction, feet and ankle mobility, and you still use your core for this pose. It’s a pose where you strengthen and stretch at the same time.

How Has Yoga Benefited You The Most: 

Yoga has taught me to slow down and focus on my alignment and breath.

Reason Started Doing Yoga: 

A dear friend invited me to my first yoga class.

5 Words That Describe Your Teaching Style: 

Methodical, Eloquent, Sincere, Refreshing, Innovative

Classes I Teach

My level one vinyasa flow is taught with both sincerity and sternness: allowing students to feel cared for but still sore the next day.

My intro to level two vinyasa flow is taught with the idea of "graceful endurance". That as we flow, we push to be poised in any posture or position.
