Who We Are
We are Driven to Break the Vicious Cycle of Stress
Kelly holds a BA in Communications and started her career in writing and public relations more than 15 years ago. In 2003, she completed a 200+ hour yoga teacher training and left hospital PR work to become a freelance writer and yoga instructor. In 2008, she started a family and returned to her love of ballet. To deepen her practice in the ancient traditions of yoga, Kelly adopted a daily meditation practice and studies ancient yogic texts at the Arsha Vidya Gurukulum in the Pocono Mountains. Kelly is thrilled to join Bija Initiative and bring ancient practices to cubicles everywhere.
