Hey, I’m Kiya!
I am an exercise scientist and mystic with 20 years in outdoor adventure fitness globally.
I am also the founder of AIR BAR FIT, a modern movement technology for women combining martial arts, primal dance and breathwork. Air stands for “active, internal, resistance” training.
More on my wellness journey
I grew up on a remote island in Alaska and emerged from the powerful, healing energy of nature.
When I realized most Americans were paying vast sums of money to exercise in crowded gyms under neon lights I knew a new business needed to be born.
I believe that “fitness freedom” is a basic human right and is available to anyone with a sense of wonder and curiosity.
My clients are now able to thrive for a fraction of the cost through natural elements and the 7 sacred rituals I use within my training for epic transformation.
Wellness Q&A with Kiya
What does a healthy life-work balance look like to you?
I teach my clients the ultimate power of a morning routine including Breathwork.
Breathing is our #1 core human need for survival on Planet Earth and creates an energetic blueprint for your day that is magnetic to your true, deep-core desires.
This is the difference between chasing your dreams and magnetizing your life.
How do you make sure you are regularly prioritising your mental and physical well-being?
I make sure I prioritize myself first. Then my family, and then my work. In that order, all the time.
All the other stuff comes last.
It’s a game-changer.
How do you show yourself self-love and self-care? Are there any particular activities you indulge in and what inner work do you do?
Discipline becomes devotion over time.
I practice these 7 sacred rituals for epic transformation daily: energy work, mindfulness, movement, nourishment, nature, adventure and music.
What is your go-to productivity hack?
Cutting way back on drinking alcohol has been life-changing.
The more time I spend sober, the better my sleep and my productivity.
Sobriety is a superpower.
What self-help or personal development book would you recommend and why?
Carolyn Myss: Anatomy of the Spirit.
This book explains that everything is energy and explores how it is the missing link to longevity and multidimensional well-being beyond just the physical body.

What would you say to your 21-year-old self?
Stop drinking so much alcohol and you’ll be a millionaire by the time you’re 30!
And lastly, what’s the best advice you’ve ever received?
Know yourself above all else, and trust yourself above all else.
