Kelly has been a student of yoga, in its many forms, for close to 30 years, it has been a deep passion for her and a strong medicine. In 2011 Kelly took the 200HR Teacher Training program at Halifax Yoga with Sherry Zak and Coeli Marsh. She continues to evolve and deepen her yoga practice and in 2015 travelled to India to take Kundalini Teacher Training. Currently Kelly teaches restorative yoga on Sunday mornings, she loves the healing nature of the practice and the state of deep relaxation that students can achieve during a class. When not teaching yoga Kelly can be found out in nature or by the ocean, she loves to travel, and as a student of yoga continues to seek out new experiences and knowledge of the practice.
