What’s in Your Yoga Bag? with Kia Miller

[ 20 ] April 23, 2012 |

Luminous. This is Kia Miller in a singular word. Everyone who meets her sees and feels it. She brings this vibrant energy to everything she does, which includes teaching Kundalini and Vinyasa Flow at YogaWorks in LA and yoga events worldwide.

Although we’ve been friends for what seems like a lifetime, I’ve never had any good excuse to (delicately) paw through her yoga bag…that is, until now! Recently, we plunked ourselves down in a favorite sunny park in Venice, where I reverently opened Kia’s treasure trove of a satchel, uncovering a few of the secrets to her luminosity. Unveil!

The beautifully embroidered bag was a gift from her husband, yoga teacher and Tadasana Festival co-founder Tommy Rosen. Kia is a lip balm fanatic (she’s human, after all), carrying no less than four different flavors. The little personal touches that caught my eye were the lovingly worn mala, a dogeared kundalini book, and Ganesh, who safeguards her iPhone and twinkly class playlists. Also — chocolate! As we sat, she nommed on a Keen-Wah Chocolate Chia Bar and looked a bit sheepish about all the lip gloss tubes. I reassured her not to worry — they are well-balanced by the yoga book and hybrid keys. :)

    That is my favorite chocolate!! Alter Eco Keen wah! Love to look inside the BAG. Doesn’t she have any scribbles or old receipts??

    • lo says:

      girl, you always have the inside nom scoop! i will have to give it a whirl.

      excellent question re: scribbles/receipts. kia is pretty masterful at keeping things simple and organized. she did give me a wad of gum to hold, though. j/k!
