Always on the hunt for some deep connection with the invisible forces of magic and spirit, Kelly studied Eastern philosophy and Japanese in DC, hiked the Appalachian Trail, 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 10 years later, and she now teaches workshops, festivals and teacher trainings all over the globe.
KELLY'S classes are smart, poetic and always a little unexpected. 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 with lots of variations for all levels. Her aim is always to make each person feel welcomed and at ease, whether in person or online. She is honored to study with and be influenced by many great teachers including Sondra Loring, Cyndi Lee and Douglas Brooks.
She believes wholeheartedly that yoga is not separate from culture or politics or anything else, and she strives to create an environment that is inclusive, helpful and relevant. It is of utmost importance to her that she stay current with regards to movement science, neuroscience, social justice & political movements.
All classes, trainings and workshops are half price for BIPOC, and if funds are an issue for ANYONE please ask for a break :-)
