Guest Yoga Teachers Kelly and Ted
Kelly Stiglich inspires her students to tap into their intuition on the mat. 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 is a 500 E- RYT, YACEP (Yoga Alliance Continued Education Provider) and Ayurveda Specialist. She studied 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 200/300 hour Teacher Trainings as well as the Ascension Alignment Based Aerial Yoga Teacher Certification Kelly has lead, over 50 workshops, 5 retreats, and 8 teacher trainings, statewide, as well as internationally in Costa Rica, and Bali.
Ted Stiglich fell into his yoga journey by taking a teacher training with his wife, Kelly. He wanted to support her on her path. Ted had no intention of teaching yoga, but that 200 hour teacher training was profound and life changing. He discovered a love for yoga and teaching that took him by surprise. The philosophy along with the physical aspects of yoga, woke him up. Ted is an award winning body-builder and finds the cooling practices of yoga to be the most balancing. Ted teaches Gentle Yoga, Yin, Yoga Nidra, and restorative.

Meditation is a practice of concentrated focus upon a sound, object, visualization, the breath, movement, or attention itself in order to increase awareness of the present moment, reduce stress, promote relaxation and enhance personal and spiritual growth. Cost: $25 for 60 minutes
90 Minute Ascension Aerial Exploration Yoga Class:
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 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
***Please Note: 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.
