Kelly is a co-owner of Shanti School of Yoga, RYT 500, through Yoga Alliance, and an Ayurveda Specialist. Her 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, spoue, friend, or to find what our life purpose 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 – she wanted 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 that is suited for you, and soul balancing.
Kelly 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.
