Hi, my name is Kelly and I am a certified yoga instructor and Reiki Master. I have 15 years experience teaching yoga in private sessions, studios, fitness centers, schools, hospitals, corporations, day care and more. I have 4 years as a Reiki Practitioner. My passion stands out in my dedication to my students, my responsibility and my ability to craft a unique session for my student or group of students. I am a former accountant and understand the stresses of corporate life. My website is www.yogawellnessbykelly.com
I hold the following certifications: YogaFit teacher training; YogaFit prenatal/postpartum; YogaFit seniors; Restorative Yoga by Jillian Pransky; Little Flowers Kids yoga; Atma Buti Sound and Vibrational Healing; Reiki Master; CPR/ARD
Yoga has completely changed my life in so many ways. I was very stressed before I started taking yoga. I went from that place to a place of serenity and peace. What I love most about my work is helping my students find a place of serenity though their yoga practice.
Kelly is an awesome instructor and practitioner. I have been a student of Kelly’s for 2.5 years. Each session is uniquely individual for your needs at that moment. Kelly draws in an array of approaches and practice traditions to bring a centering, calming and healing practice. I highly recommend Kelly!
Kelly’s Reiki sessions are calming and nurturing. They always leave me feeling refreshed and restored. They are always a special treat for me!
I currently take private vinyasa yoga sessions with Kelly and she is wonderful. She mixes up the sessions each week so the sessions are unique. She has an upbeat, kind spirit. I highly recommend her.
Kelly has a very calm but powerful energy. She really seems to hone in on whatever is bothering me and calms it right down. I truly enjoy working with her.
I speak to a new student in detail about their particular needs and wants in a yoga session. I discuss their experience level and past styles of yoga practiced. I will ask questions such as prior injuries, surgeries, particular areas of the body they may be taking care of and questions such as untreated high/low blood pressure. I will ask the student if they have any questions for me.
I hold the following certifications: YogaFit Teacher Training; YogaFit Prenatal/Postpartum, YogaFit Seniors; Restorative Yoga by Jillian Pransky; Little Flowers Kids Yoga; Atma Buti Sound and Vibrational Healing; Reiki Master; CPR/AED
I left my corporate job not knowing what I would do next. A friend suggested I try yoga to de-stress. I gave it a try and loved the practice my first time on the mat. After two years of practicing I decided to become a certified yoga teacher to give back to others the gifts yoga had given me. It took me a year to become certified and since then I have gone on to receive several specialty certifications. It is a wonderful continuing journey.
I have worked with seniors; adults; teens; children; those with injuries, MS, lupus, back pain, special needs, prenatal and more.
Every year I attend The Ahimsa Yoga and Music Festival which takes place Friday, Saturday and Sunday the first week in November. It takes place at Hunter Mountain, New York which is a ski resort and most of the events actually take place in the ski lodge. There are tons of fantastic yoga classes, workshops and music to pick from every day. There is wonderful vegetarian food and great vendors. Most people stay in the hotel right on the mountain which is walking distance to the lodge. It’s my favorite weekend of the year!
I would tell the student to be sure to speak to the instructor and become comfortable. Ask any questions you want and make sure they are answered to your satisfaction. Take a session and make sure you feel comfortable, safe and are having fun.
Am I more of a beginner or more advanced? Do I want to work on a flow, particular poses or both? What injuries or limitations do I have? Am I willing to travel? What is my budget?
