Testimonials

“I truly could not have made it through my pregnancy with my head on straight & my body feeling good without Kelley’s prenatal class. I went to every prenatal class in town & Kelley’s was hands down the best. I went even when I was utterly exhausted & nauseous in the middle of a snow storm! THANK YOU KELLEY!!!” – Clare, Maine

“As yoga teaching gains popularity, it is becoming essential that we seek out quality & experienced instruction from teachers deeply rooted in their own yoga practices. Kelley is one of those teachers worth seeking, teaching from a place of long time personal practice & experience. She is extremely intentional in what she offers in all her sessions & cares about the needs of each student. I value Kelley’s deep connection to the subtle body, mudra, & the spiritual context of yoga & how it relates to the greater picture of our lives.”  -Maria, Maine

“I have been practicing yoga for over 20 years & without reservation can honestly say Kelley is the best all around teacher I have had. In addition to taking a number of her group classes & small-group private sessions over the years, she worked with me one on one through my pregnancy. Her thoughtful, researched, individually tailored approach helped me throughout the 9 months immensely. I felt strong, flexible & ready to meet the experience of birth, in the way I wanted.” – Aidan, Connecticut

I worked with Kelley during my 2nd trimester.  It was my first experience with prenatal yoga & I’m delighted to say it was wonderful. She is a true professional, not only did she go to the effort to make an individualized plan for every session, she took the time to explain the benefits & purpose of many poses. She has excellent training, which shines through in her steady approach & consistent focus.  I give Kelley my highest recommendation for anyone seeking a first class yoga teacher.” -Kate, Montreal

“Kelley leads class with an unwavering sense of purpose & calm which makes every session unbelievably refreshing & soothing.  If yoga is a tool for achieving a stillness & clear understanding in the mind, Kelley is your best possible guide for the journey.  Every second of her class is completely mindful, unhurried, relaxed, yet totally alert.”

“Kelley has the amazing ability to bring a supreme sense of calm & tranquility over the entire yoga studio when she teaches. She seems to always know what her students need & tailors her classes perfectly to the season, weather, temperature & general energy of the time & place.” -Sophia, New York
*
“Of the many yoga teachers I’ve experienced she’s one of the few that knows how to balance rhythm & stillness, while being mindful about the role of meditation in the modern yoga practice. Her classes are stripped down to the essentials: deliberate silence, breath & movement. Through these, she cultivates a refuge for her students to find release from the city’s constant hum. A rare treasure in a crowded landscape!” -Sebastian, New York

“I love taking Kelley’s classes because she always gives my head just as much to do as my body. I have found that particular balance somewhat elusive in classes & I SO appreciate that she brings it every time. She manages to make her dharma talk concise & relatable AND doable. When she’s guiding you through asanas, there’s the same tendency  of well-chosen explanations & exaltations – no overly elaborate metaphors or the same stock phrases. She’s a kind & warm teacher, the type who embodies “being on the path” without telling you constantly how she’s on the path, a way of being that I greatly admire.”

Kelley has guided me through many a difficult season & her class has helped me in various aspects of my life tremendously. I recall noticing after the first class just how much information her subtle adjustments could both convey alignment & transform energy. Kelley has taught me a great deal beyond the asana portion of yoga & I am still learning from her as these lessons continually unfold.” -Christina, New York
*
“Kelley’s devotion to both the spiritual & physical practice of yoga is clear- & such an inspiration. It’s easy to commit to a weekly practice when your teacher is so visibly attentive & involved in yoga, in the class & outside.  I have practiced with Kelley & had her support & guidance through healthy times, injuries & throughout my pregnancy.  Her flexibility & loving observation allowed me to feel safe practicing yoga during vulnerable times.”
