Koru Mindfulness Teacher

Kayla Gill Certified

lexington, KY University of Kentucky kggi222@uky.edu

Kayla's passion for Koru meditation was initiated through the need for meditation outlets for underrepresented and marginalized populations. As a program advisor, her interaction with students highlighted mental health and stressors that students were facing. When Koru was introduced by the UK's Campus Wellness and Rec she jumped at the opportunity to learn about the practice and how this could improve the lives of her target population.

In July 2020 Kayla officially became a Koru certified teacher! While her focus has been college students, she has experience teaching at community events, high school students, and adult learners.  She strives to introduce Koru to diverse populations and create strategies to implement meditation into the lives of many. Kayla is currently a First-Generation and Off-Campus First-Year Program Advisor in the Student Transitions and Family Programs.
