East meets West: An Integrative Approach
Not long after I began my career as a doctor of physical therapy, I became acutely aware of the shortcomings of Western Biomedicine.
Working on the hospital floors too often I felt I was doing my clients a disservice. I was simply aiding in the treatment of their symptoms and sending them home…as quickly as possible. Despite my best efforts I rarely felt I was truly facilitating any fundamental and lasting changes to their health.
I felt like something was missing. As a result, I became increasingly interested in the spiritual and physical practices of yoga, eventually becoming certified as a yoga instructor.
From there, I started up a business called Yoga Trails integrating yoga, hiking, and nature. By integrating my physical therapy knowledge of alignment and thorough understanding of anatomy I was able to lead students through yoga poses while still keeping them safe and injury free.
But, something was still missing. That’s when I discovered Ayurveda. Among other benefits, this ancient healing medicine helped me recover completely from digestive issues I had had since traveling in South America.
After pursuing Ayurveda for my own healing I took it a step further. I enrolled myself into an immersive study of Ayurvedic nutrition, massage, herbs, and lifestyle. And, in 2011, under the skilled guidance of Dr. Sundar Raman I completed my Ayurvedic training in Tamal Nadu, India.
An integrative practice is born
Now, I care for clients privately using an integrative blend of physical therapy, yoga, nutrition, and lifestyle coaching with the principles of Ayurveda at the core.
The integrative approach I use is not just about resolving symptoms; it’s actually about delving in and discovering the root cause of the issue. It’s about making lasting changes. It’s about aging gracefully. It’s about quality of life. And, it’s about optimizing the natural healing mechanisms of the body so you can live this life fully. It’s not about treating symptoms with pills and quick fixes.
It is meaningful to me that the clients I serve are getting the best of what I have to offer and not just what some system (health insurance, big pharma, corporate health care systems, and even the FDA) says we need.
Each client I see is unique and I make every effort to understand a client’s constitution (mind- body type also known as a dosha) and to tailor my treatments to best support their overall health while we address the current issue(s)
My work integrates the robust, detail-oriented, and evidence-based biomedical model with the subtle, often intuitive, and prevention-based teachings of Ayurveda.
I love what I do and I’m fortunate to be good at it, but don’t just take my word for it — what’s being said.
I integrate the healing work of Ayurveda and other Eastern Medicine practices with the science and rigor of my doctorate degree in physical therapy.
I specialize in holistic health upgrades. I help people uplevel their nutrition, physical fitness, and lifestyle in a way that is practical, yet profound.
Clients engage with me with the desire to feel healthy, whole, and balanced.
Together, we slice through the layers of limiting beliefs, extricate shame, and dispel fears.
The backbone of my practice is the skilled upgrade of moment to moment decisions that collectively reshape, restructure, and redefine your health.
Our choices define and create us. Cumulative choices in one direction have the capacity to crack wide open your vibrant potential.

Dr. Kyle brings a warmness and kindness that accompanies someone doing something from a place of love and self-fulfillment. She has a strong enthusiasm for her work, but tempers that with a calmness of mind and demeanor. I came to her with a neck problem and she offered me exercises and diet advice. I’m feeling better already.

I loved the 4DHD! What I really liked was getting some detox/reset benefits without having to “starve” myself. I was never hungry and never craved other food. I felt a big boost in energy and clarity during and after the 4-Day Home Detox. It was super easy to integrate into my life and the Kitchari dish was delicious.
Chris Badgett | The 4 Day Home Detox Client
Kyle has an incredibly calming nature about her, and the minute I walked in to our sessions, I relaxed. Her soothing voice and gentle instructions made learning yoga challenging yet still comfortable. Kyle has been practicing for years, and that is apparent from her wealth of knowledge and ability to easily adapt classes. I would recommend her classes to anyone lucky enough to have the opportunity!
Kate Schmid | One-to-One Yoga Client
Kyle helped me feel open to looking at things in a different way. She has a warm way about her – you can tell she really cares. With her guidance I began to look at my relationship to food very differently.
Amanda Blevins | Ayurvedic Coaching Client
The consultation gave me a great deal of startling insight into my own lifestyle, how I contribute to my own imbalances and, more importantly, how to correct for them. After an hour and a half of talking with Kyle, I feel as though I am not just following another set of ‘get-skinny rules’ but am on the real road to real healing and true health.

This is my fourth day of the cleanse and I feel great and not hungry at all. This is such a miracle! I love the yummy soup and tea and have not had any cravings! I feel light and clean and lost almost 3 lbs in 3 days.
