It was a happy coincidence that Kelly found yoga, and with continued practice under some inspirational teachers, she started to experience transformation and the desire to explore deeper the self, so yoga became a big part of her life! Kelly believes one’s relationship with yoga to be ever changing and evolving, that one can never stop learning, which means she is constantly educating herself further through study.
In Kelly's classes, she brings together all elements of her experience, offering up to her students her love and knowledge of the yoga traditions. Her classes have a focus on protecting and respecting the body, connecting with the breath, building strength and calming the mind. Kelly likes yoga to be challenging and energetic, but also nurturing, lighthearted and fun, and has a special focus on connecting with students needs, inviting everyone to learn at their own level and pace, but at the same time exciting them to move into places they may never knew possible in their practice!
Kelly completed a 500 hour, level 4 Diploma with the British Wheel of Yoga, and since then has been teaching internationally. Kelly has practiced with Saraswati Jois of the Ashtanga tradition and has completed advanced training with Simon Borg Olivier and Duncan Peak. She has also trained with Samita Rathor who passes down the tradition of TKV Desikachar in subjects such as chanting, learning the sutras, pranayama and meditation.
With a decade of practice and years of teaching behind her, we are more than happy that she chose to join us in spreading the love of yoga.
Here's a sneak peek into the Anand Yoga Village community. Every person here has contributed to the growth and we are incredibly grateful to each and everyone of them.
