―Tyrion Lannister[src]

Kayla is a talented contortionist.

Kayla is a prostitute and a highly skilled contortionist. According to Tyrion, she is one of only four women in the known world who can bend her body to the extent that she can properly perform a sexual position known as the "Meereenese Knot".

Season 3

Along with Marei and Genna, she is one of the three prostitutes in Littlefinger's brothel who are hired by Tyrion to service Pod as a reward for saving his life in the Battle of the Blackwater.[1] Kayla and her colleagues are apparently so satisfied with Podrick that they decline payment, much to the astonishment of Tyrion, Bronn, Ros, and even Varys.[2]

Season 4

Kayla is present as an entertainer at the Joffrey's wedding. Her performance is admired by Oberyn Martell and Ellaria Sand.[3]

In the books

In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, there is no character named Kayla. The "Meereenese Knot" is an inside joke to the books fandom about a major plot issue George R.R. Martin had to deal with when writing A Dance With Dragons.
