Kelly's formal study of Yoga began in 1989, and she began studying with Kofi Busia, Senior Iyengar instructor, in 1995. She has a background in meditation, primarily guided by the Zen approach of Cheri Huber. Kelly began teaching yoga after her first teacher training at Mount Madonna Center in 1997. She has since continued her intensive training, primarily with Kofi, Sianna Sherman and John Friend. Kelly has been deeply influenced by the teachings of Anusara.
In addition to teaching throughout the Bay Area, Kelly has led dozens of retreats, both locally and internationally. Kelly has also taught yoga philosophy, advanced asana and yoga therapeutics modules, for Anusara Trainings and for the Mount Madonna Teacher Training Program.
Kelly is a Marriage Family Therapist Intern. The study of Shaivism, Buddhism, and Classical Yoga Philosophy has shaped Kelly's therapy practice. Despite all this rather intense study, Kelly remains mostly amused by the life experience.
