About Kelly
Kelly began to seriously study yoga in 2007 in Philadelphia when she found that it provided therapeutic relief for long held injuries acquired over the years as an archaeologist. As she moved back to New York in 2009 to complete her Ph.D. in Anthropology at Columbia University, her love for yoga blossomed and she felt the need to share this love with others. She received her 200-hour teacher training in the fall of 2010 and started to also study eastern philosophy with Dr. Douglas Brooks and Eric Stoneberg combining her two loves-learning about other cultures and practicing yoga. Instead of heading directly into teaching yoga full-time, Kelly settled into another new role as mum and began to explore how to incorporate this new role into her practice. Pregnancy, delivery and parenthood led Kelly to explore the changes throughout a woman’s lifecycle and desire to make every step of that lifecycle a healthy positive experience. Her desire to learn more on how yoga and natural foods can enhance these cycles and provide relief for women’s health issues such as endometriosis or infertility led Kelly to complete prenatal and postnatal yoga training in 2012 and take courses in ayurvedic practice. She began to work with private clients in different phases of women’s life from pregnancy to post-natal and into peri-menopause. While she continues to explore all aspects of yoga, her practice and teaching now primarily focuses on women’s wellness and health in all stages of life.kellybritt biophoto
