Let me introduce myself. My name is Kelly and I’m a student of yoga. I teach Hatha Yoga and I am also a Reiki Master. My classes focus on a fun and relaxing style of yoga that cultivates mental and physical balance and flexibility. I teach everyone from children through adults with specialties in pre-natal and teen yoga. I am a Yoga Alliance registered instructor.
When I took my first yoga class, I wasn’t sure what to expect. I knew that yoga was supposed to be good for reducing stress and increasing flexibility, but that is all I really knew about it. After finishing my first class, I became really fascinated with yoga and wanted to learn more. I decided to continue taking classes and to find out as much about yoga as I could. I discovered the eight limbs of yoga, the chakra energy centers, meditation and more. Over time, I felt my body becoming stronger and more flexible. Then one of my instructors suggested that I look into becoming a teacher, I had never thought of it before but the idea interested me so I always kept it in the back of mind. Then when the time seemed right I started studying to become a yoga teacher and I’ve been learning ever since.
I am also the founder of Yoga for Africa, an organization formed to raise money and awareness for the plight in those in Africa. Donations from Yoga for Africa classes go to the World Vision organization.
Yoga has brought a sense of peace and balance to my busy family life and I want to share my secret for happiness with as many people as I can.
