Kelly received certifications in hatha and prenatal yoga in 2005 at Integral Yoga Institute. Since then, she has gained additional certifications in postnatal, restorative and yin yoga. Kelly has actively taught prenatal yoga since 2005, and like many prenatal teachers, she has a passion for birth. So, in 2007 Kelly became a birth doula. She has since had the great honor to support over 60 births and has guided hundreds of couples in preparation for birth. Kelly is a certified childbirth educator and lactation counselor, and she has trained and mentored prenatal yoga teachers and doulas since 2010. Her current teaching practice encompasses women’s yoga throughout the life cycle.
Kelly found her way to yoga after years working as a social services program manager and training department administrator. She grew up in Colorado. Kelly has three sons and is also a mom to a gregarious blue parrot named Radha.
Kelly is ever grateful to her teachers: Swami Ramananda, Kali Morse and Nadiya Nottingham.
