Kelly has been teaching yoga and meditation for 14 years. While she has experience with people of all ages and stages, Kelly has a particular adoration for early childhood and specializes in yoga for toddlers and preschoolers.
Prior to teaching, Kelly raced to the top of the corporate ladder. She left her successful advertising career when she realized how helpful yoga and meditation were in navigating life challenges like trauma and grief.
Teaching highlights have included instructing at Deepak Chopra's Center, Bend & Bloom, UWS Yoga, Karma Kids Yoga, Brooklyn Public Library, in countless schools and daycares around NYC, and for many wonderful private clients.
Highly regarded as a kids yoga expert, Kelly spent 5 years traveling the world, training and certifying children's yoga teachers. She also spent time training classroom educators how to incorporate yoga into their school day.
Kelly resides in Brooklyn where she teaches private and group sessions. Students describe her as patient, nurturing, and playful.
She also offers energy healing sessions and tarot/oracle card readings.
We hired Kelly to come and do a session of yoga for our son’s third birthday party and were blown away. She brought 12 3-year-olds into a big circle and got each one of them to engage (even being outside, which brings many, many distractions). Our son had a wonderful time and other parents couldn’t believe their kids participated and enjoyed it, too. We’d recommend Kelly to anyone.
Ms. Kelly has been teaching yoga to little ones at our daycare/preschool for 3 years. Her classes are developmentally appropriate and engaging. She is teaching with love and connection to kids. Kelly is very creative and fun. She knows how to keep a group of children entertained with yoga poses and games. Little ones are beside themselves with joy when she enters the room. Kelly is an amazing teacher and I would highly recommend her to anyone!
