KELLY'S classes are musical, poetic, and deeply spiritual. She is known for her storytelling and her ability to make the philosophy of yoga relatable, to bring big subjects into an every day perspective. Expect a challenging and creative flow, plenty of great music, a dose of philosophy, a bit of chanting, and definitely some laughter! She is honored to study with and be influenced by many great teachers including Dana Flynn, Raghunath Cappo, Joshua Greene, Cyndi Lee and Douglas Brooks. She is also endlessly exhilarated by poetry, clouds, the Bhagavad Gita and climbing mountains.
Always on the hunt for some deep connection with the invisible forces of magic and spirit, Kelly studied Eastern philosophy and politics in DC, hiked the Appalachian Train, traveled the world, and worked as a stylist in the NYC fashion and music business. When she found yoga she saw it as the confluence of everything she valued and longed for – creation and form, connection to the magical unknown, the fusing of the sacred and the everyday. She opened a studio in Goshen NY in 2006 and sold it a couple of years ago, and now teaches workshops, festivals and teacher trainings all over the globe.
It is often said that our yoga practice doesn’t really begin until life gets hard, and kelly has experienced that first hand. Her goal is to help people see that our greatest struggles can actually be our greatest strengths. She combines the power of movement, music, and myth to help others move through life transitions with grace and ease.
