Kayla Minato

Kayla studied at the Pacific College of Health and Science in San Diego, CA and completed her AAS and HHP in 2011. She is a certified Reiki practitioner levels 1 and 2. Kayla’s bodywork style is an intuitive mixture of sports therapy, neuromuscular, energy work, and emotional release techniques. Her goal and passion is breaking down fascia to release tension in the physical body to improve flexibility and circulation throughout all the systems. Kayla supports awakening the nervous system and allowing for release of emotional memory that gets stagnate and blocked. She assists in cleansing and clearing the energetic bodies to awaken positive thought patterns and reconnect body and mind awareness, creating physical, emotional, and energetic harmony and balance!

The last decade has seen amazing growth in Kayla’s practice and life. She has a 9-year old daughter, which awakened an interest in pre- and postnatal care, structural realignment and the importance of teaching/practicing emotional and body awareness. Relating and building relationships with one another is what enhances our human experience and allows for collaboration in all areas of life. Opening our hearts into communication with our inner worlds awakens us to shine authenticity in our gifts. When we are able to freely give and receive with our community we empower ourselves to thrive!

  • Moms for Moms: A Conversation on Maternal Wellness

    60 min | Fairies’ Hollow

    As society pivots to restore the matriarchy, it is critical that we support the uplifting and empowerment of mothers and the nourishment they provide to the community. Join us in a facilitated conversation on motherhood and wellness throughout all the stages, ages, and moments of life. It is our hope that we can hold the container for knowledge through lived experiences to be shared, witnessed, celebrated and unpacked together in community. We intend to nurture a dialog on the ways and means for assisting mothers through this restorative practice, with an opportunity for sharing resources and connections for community empowerment. We invite mothers, grandmothers, mothers-to-be, caregives, and anyone interested in the conversation around how to support, enrich, and uplift the matriarchal journey.
