Kelly moved to Hawaii in 2001 with her husband and 2 kids from St. Louis, MO where she was born and raised. Having access to a military gym and free classes she tried new things such as Zumba and yoga! Yoga was an instant fit! After 3 years the commitment was over and she had to find a new place to practice yoga! Lucky for her, Yoga Loft was opening its doors and she was in one of the first classes! She felt at home there with such wonderful teachers such as Zeny and Lisa! After 4 years there she decided she wanted to deepen her practice and took a 200hr Vinyasa yoga teacher training with Hawaii School of Yoga at Yoga Loft with Zeny Ogrisseg. It was such an amazing experience and she is so grateful to be teaching at Yoga Loft!! She loves starting and ending the class with stretching the body along with the breath and an energetic vinyasa flow in between! She incorporates gratitude and reading a thought, story or quote into each practice. Yoga has brought so much joy, peace, and grounding into her life and she loves sharing it with others!
