About Us

Green Heart Space represents giving Love

A green heart represents giving love. Honoring the green spaces around us and keeping the green as vibrant as always possible. We are growing as a conscious community, so Santa Anita Hot Yoga Studio is providing the space and services to allow this to happen. From creating childcare/playgroup and homeschool support. Parents and caregivers can easily continue their practice when needed and children can grow their own food and play with others in our community garden!

We will host workshops and lectures to guide us on healthy food alternatives, how to “waste” less, recycle, reuse and renew, self-care, care of our Planet and so much more.

Our community dog Bruiser Bee will support us, and we will include other animal therapy events too!

Kayla Stra

Owner/manager and founder

Born in Australia I was raised in a beautiful part of the world along the coastal town of Aldinga Beach. Horses were everywhere and I love animals, so I became a thoroughbred jockey and obtained my licence to race at age 17.
I left Australia to further my career and be with my US family in 2007. I have not only had great new adventures, but I have grown as a person and found some amazing new friends.
As a jockey and a person I have faced serious challenges such as depression, anxiety and eating disorders. In late 2010 I began to practice Hot Yoga when racing in San Fransisco. Shortly there after I was able to give up medication and even found relief from sciatic nerve pain coming from my L5 disc from years of riding.
I feel as if Hot Yoga has helped me to understand my own body and be in control of my thoughts, and I continue to hold the practice as an important part of the balance I find in my life.
As a natural progression in my Yoga practice and as a love to learn, I completed a certification to teach in 2014 and Reiki 1 & 2 in 2017. I sold my house in Australia to open Santa Anita Hot Yoga Studio. Now I can share what I learn with everyone who is ready to see, feel and connect with the magic and beauty within and around us; it is truly rewarding. I am grateful for all that is.

Enjoy. Love.
Be happy, be healthy
and be compassionate.
