Guest Yoga Teachers Kelly and Ted

Kelly Stiglich


Kelly’s mission is to empower students to find their own way. She believes there is a point in our lives that we just feel like there must be more. Whether it is to be a different kind of parent, spouse, friend, or to find what our life purpose, our brilliance is. It is the restless sound of our soul trying to wake us up! Kelly discovered this gentle whisper on her yoga mat. She came to yoga for purely physical reasons. A leaner, better looking body, but what she got from yoga was so much more than physical. She discovered peace, joy, fear, anger, frustration, love, compassion, tolerance, and complete acceptance.

Kelly has also been a dance fitness instructor for over 25 years with certifications in Aqua Zumba, Zumba Gold as well as Basic 1 & 2 Zumba. She has choreographed routines for local award winning body builders and currently offers coaching for the body, mind, and spirit. Kelly believes that there isn’t a “master diet” that will allow the body to lose weight and become balanced. She can show you that every “body” is different and each craves balance through healthy food, exercise suited for you, and soul balancing.

Kelly is a 500 RYT and Ayurveda Specialist as well as a registered 200 RYT through the Yoga Alliance. She studied under Jackie Chiodo learning the classical path of Raja Yoga, which is based on the 8 limbs of Patanijali’s yoga sutras, Ayurveda, and Yin. Kelly brings a greater understanding of why different styles of yoga are so beneficial for everyone’s unique body. She teaches the 200 hour Teacher Training as well as the Ascension Alignment Based Yoga Teacher Certification . Kelly leads classes, workshops, retreats, and teacher trainings at her studio, statewide, as well as internationally in Costa Rica, and Bali.

Ted Stiglich


Ted is a is a gifted Reiki Master and Yoga Teacher. Ted received his 200 hour yoga certification right here at the beautiful Anamaya Resort in 2011. He is certified through Joyful Yoga and Yoga Alliance. Ted studied under Jackie Chiodo learning the classical path of Raja yoga, which is based on the 8 limbs of Patanijali’s yoga sutras, Ayurveda, and Yin. His influences have been Jackie Chiodo, Paul Grilley, Bikram Choudary, Kate Evans, and his wife Kelly Stiglich.

As a former body builder, Ted has really learned to tune into the messages his body is giving him. Practicing yoga has taught him compassion for his body and brought great healing. Ted finds great inner balance when practicing Vinyasa, Hot Yoga, and slow burn. He understands that each “body” is unique and the cooling practices such as Yin, gentle, restorative are vital for healing and creating flexibility.

Workshops Available

Meditation Workshop:  TBA

Ascension Aerial Exploration Yoga Workshop:  This aerial yoga class is appropriate for beginners and advancing students alike, with a gentle approach. There will be variations of each flow offered to challenge you when it feels right, and to allow you to practice mindfully when you have found your edge. Some will learn to fly, invert and flow (if you are brand new to the swing come 15 minutes early!) and some will deepen their existing practice with creative sequencing and alignment principals. This practice will make you stronger in the swing and bring a new dimension to your yoga mat practice. This is a great class to lengthen the spine, build core and upper body strength, and to melt stress and tension from the body. Cost $25

Chakra Workshop:  Chakra is a Sanskrit word meaning “wheel” that is used to describe the spinning energy centers within the body that carry the life force (chi) and affect the wellness of an individual. We know at some level, we are more than just our body. We have emotions and feelings. Chakras are the house of our emotions and feelings broken up into separate disc/wheels of energy. When these energy centers are out of balance it will show up in the body. In this 2 hour workshop you’ll learn in great detail about each Chakra and the effects on the body. The best way to learn is feel it in your body! We will provide a Chakra quiz from the book, Wheels of Life, by Anodea Judith, that will help bring clarity to balances and weaknesses. Cost is $40

Introduction to Ayurveda Dosha Yoga Class:  Ayurveda recognizes three doshas, or humors—vata, pitta, and kapha—that make up our bodily constitutions in different combinations. We each have a unique makeup of these doshas in different quantities. We all process these 3 forces. Come explore these forces and discover why “you do what you do”. In this 2 hour workshop learn to understand your partner, lover, friends, and children. Cost $40

**** You can also get a personalized Ayurveda Consultation that consists of detailed individualized evaluation of the student, and a 90 minute consultation between you and Kelly Stiglich, 500 E-RYT,  Ayurveda Specialist to explore your unique constitution, Prakruti, and evaluate the signs and causes of potential or actual imbalances, Vikruti. Kelly uses direct questions along with your detailed personal history, information to help you understand who you are and create more balance to align your body, mind and spirit.  You will come away with practical, affordable and accessible recommendations to implement physical, emotional, psychological, and spiritual well-being trough Yoga practices and five sense therapies.  Cost $85
