Goodbye Kyla!

A live performance by Jessy Layne Tuddenham
Made in collaboration with Kyla Avery Kegler

Part practice, part performance, ‘Goodbye Kyla’ is a yoga experience that mixes sun salutations with stand-up comedy and light choreography. Led by Jessy and Kyla, accompanied by Roland Satterwhite, hacked by special guests, and performed by YOU, this show is built to warm the heart and shine your inner cynic! Bring your smart phone, put it on airplane mode, and expect the expected. No prior yoga experience or knowledge of Kyla necessary to join.
