Vinyasa & Gentle Yoga
Hannah began practicing yoga in 2015 to help with anxiety. She found immense relief in linking movement with breath and with the simple yet profound feeling of her feet planted firmly on the earth. Since then, yoga has been her saving grace. She says that “it impossible to use language to describe the ways in which this beautiful practice continuously heals her spirit on and off of her mat, it is an experience that can only be felt.” Hannah hopes to be a space-holder for those who wish to go deeper and choose to use this practice as a way to facilitate internal transformation within their own hearts.
Yoga is science, Yoga is art, Yoga is LIFE as it’s happening! In the subtle space between effort and observation lies the connection of mind, body, and breath. This is the place where I have found my truest self – light, strong, flowing, free. As an instructor, I hope to guide students to this same space within themselves. Together we will shed layers, unbind ties, and strengthen our physical, mental, and emotional bonds. Knowledge is power, but wisdom is Divine. Let’s tap into it. We will cultivate, integrate and explore our inner and outer worlds to gain clarity, understanding, and peace of mind.

Kelly is a Colorado native who found her love for yoga over 25 years ago. Initially she pursued her 200 hour yoga teacher training solely for her own personal growth and development. She quickly realized how much she enjoyed teaching others and how it allowed her to give back all of the tools and resources that yoga has personally given her over the past 25 years. Yoga has been instrumental in her life in helping manage stress, and has also been a key component in helping her heal physically, emotionally and spiritually time and time again.
Kelly’s style of teaching is devotional, inclusive of pranayama, mantras and mudras. Her creatively sequenced classes are energetic and uplifting, creating synergy and oneness.
When not teaching or honoring her own yoga practice, you will find Kelly coaching her clients at her Financial Planning and Wealth Management firm. She also enjoys everything outdoors and is often skiing, biking, or traveling the world.
