AIR Bar™ Transformation Stories:




April approached me for training after a trip to Tulum, MX where the photo on the right was taken. She is a talented massage therapist who gives 110% to every client she touches and has been one of the only therapists able to relieve the sore muscles in my neck and back using a technique called cupping. April takes care of everyone else and it wasn't until she saw the reflection of herself on the right that she knew something had to change. She was ready to feel her fire again + take back her body and her life. The photo on the right was taken in Pie de la Cuesta, MX at our BaXar retreat this past January, just 9 months after she made a commitment to her transformation. This Woman is one of the toughest yet most caring I've ever met. She speaks to animals and has a passion for cleaning up the planet. And it wasn't until she dropped into her heart and opened herself to the magick already inside that she softened into the process, let down her guard and created some unbelievable results. So damn proud of you April. 



Meet Patty, who co owns and operates the concepts at BaXar in Pie de la Cuesta, MX and MangleX in Tulum, MX. This Woman is a warrior, a mother of two and a queen. A loving wife and a devoted teammate, friend and someone I consider a soul sister. I have had the honor of being invited into her life and her family and boy do I stir up some energy! Patty is always patient, kind and unconditionally loving in a way I have rarely encountered in this life. Just before the end of Patty's 20 Day Transformation I started to notice a subtle shift in energy. Patty is changing. More energy, lots of confidence and beautiful posture + grace with just a touch of fire. I love this Woman and am so excited that we get to work together this year hosting transformation events in Mexico. The Universe knows what it's doing.



This is Charlotte. She is a creative genius, photographer, videographer and a master at navigating the idiosyncrasies of the 21st century digital age. When she arrived at BaXar January 9, 2019 she was low on energy from her fast paced life in LA and was searching for direction, purpose and stability in her life. This powerful, magical Woman went deep for 20 days and showed UP for herself and this journey of transformation. I'm so proud of her for eating intuitively, sweating profusely and navigating her video production skills with her participation in the Transformation Event. Girl, you are a superstar and we love you. Well done and congratulations. Thanks for giving us a voice and seeing who we really are deep inside.



There really isn't a word strong enough for how I feel about this amazing Woman. When we first met she was feeling depressed, uninspired and frustrated with life in general. I noticed when she walked down the stairs she would turn sideways and grab the handrail for security. She complained of low back pain from years of caring for a special needs child and then adult whom she was required to carry everywhere. This Woman has the heart of an angel and the courage of a lioness. In two months she regained her deep core connection. She found happiness + peace with herself and her body and mastered control of her hips and pelvic muscles. She also built a lot of inner strength through breathwork and meditation and gained the balance and stability to gracefully and with a fun, easy confidence navigate the stairs without the rail. Here's to you Magdelena, well done. 


Lenny is a whip smart warrior of a Woman who is a whiz with numbers. Lenny runs operations at BaXar and looks after the staff and the financials. This wild, independent, intelligent triple threat is also funny, super sarcastic and a little bit mischievous with a hint of magick in her eyes. Which is naturally why I love her so much. Lenny started the 20 Day Transformation with a serious disconnection to her lower (transverse) abs and pelvic floor muscles. She was strong and fit and missing out on one of her greatest super powers. I call this area of the body "the second line of defense" against dysfunctional movement that can cause injury. A solid connection with this part of her body + daily energy and breathwork have changed Lenny's movement karma forever. Now Lenny's body is catching up with her brilliant mind in strength and speed. So proud of you girl. 


 ...Some more of my favorite clients + humans


"AIR Bar™ gave me the power and knowledge to change my body and my mind forever. I was told after several surgeries that I could never lift more than 15lbs. and "high impact" exercises were off the table for life. Since AIR Bar uses Active Internal Resistance I was confident that I wouldn't hurt myself. This was the first "training" I was able to do. The program gave me strength in my core, arms and legs that I have never had. I could actually see the definition in my arms and legs after only a month. Kiya encouraged me to push the limits I had in my mind for what my body was capable of doing. With every session, I improved and gained even more confidence. Today I am a completely different person. I can run, jump and even lift weights. None of this would have ever been possible for me without Kiya. She taught me how to use my 3 lines of defense to exercise properly and safely. I will use these techniques for the rest of my life and continue to gain muscle mass, coordination and strength. More than anything though, Kiya taught me to believe in myself and not limit what my body is able to do. "


"I wanted to say how much I love AIR Bar, as hard as it is to get through sometimes! I seriously cry on the drive home almost every time because your class is very spiritual to me and is very therapeutic. I always feel a little more cleansed each time! And physically stronger too. So thank you is all I can say! "


"I have never met a personal trainer like Kiya - and I've met a lot through my job as a fitness journalist. Our paths crossed on a beach in Mexico, and I was immediately impressed with her. Her unique combination of in depth knowledge, transformational energy, divine spark and dedicated interest in the people she helps is unmatched. I cannot recommend her enough. She is a star!"
