Kelsey loves yoga so much it’s infectious. It’s as if she just can’t stop doing it, talking about it, reading about it, writing about it, teaching it, and applying it to everything she does.

Her goal is to make yoga challenging and bring greater awareness to both body and mind. She also tries to keep it light hearted, because life is too short to be serious all the time!
