Kelly Devi

Kelly Devi was introduced to yoga in high school, but it wasn’t until many years later as a martial arts student that she began an earnest asana practice. A serious health crisis caused by an undiagnosed thyroid imbalance lead her to discover the deeper aspects of the practice and she learned first-hand how transformative and healing yoga can be. After regaining her health, Kelly decided to pursue certification to teach. Kelly is an Integral Yoga certified hatha, prenatal and restorative yoga teacher and trained labor support doula. She also has certification in Thai Yoga Massage. Kelly has three sons and a niece who are the inspiration behind her dedication to prenatal yoga instruction. Her diverse experience with her own pregnancies and births is revealed in her supportive, open-minded approach to prenatal yoga instruction. Kelly’s classes focus on an exploration of body-mind awareness and encourage appreciation and gentleness toward one’s self as a means of deeper connection and growth. In addition to a safe, comprehensive asana portion, Kelly’s classes highlight regular pranayama and meditation practice. These aspects are especially helpful in dealing with the challenges of pregnancy, labor and motherhood. Classes are informative, creative, energizing and encourage a sense of community among the students.
