My goal in life is to share what has been so freely given to me ~ Finding my inner smile, believing in my greatest self……extraordinary!  My wealth is my health, my spirit is my light, and my mind is a beginners…….I imagine I’ll always be a student. Since I was gifted yoga in 2008 it’s been a trip, transmuting and transforming me into living a life that resembles nothing less than a fairytale.  Yoga took my breath away and my dharma was being revealed…..Under all the layers of conditioning I found my true calling and want to share it with as many people as I can ~ It began with “More Sustained Joy” and there is an abundance to flow around!  I’m always learning, I’m currently enrolled in “Yoga Therapist Training Program” at the Center for Therapeutic Training in Orange County, California.   I completed my 500-hr certification through “Be the Change” Center for Therapeutic Training in 2017, Trauma-Informed Yoga Teacher Training in 2017, Yin Yoga Training in 2014, 200-hr Yoga Teaching Certification in Power Vinyasa in 2011, and studied Business Administration at USM Portland, Maine. Through the integration of movement, breath and meditative awareness we wake up to the interdependency of all things, I hope to be with you on this magical pilgrimage.  

Kellyann teaches Pranaflow on Sundays at 8:15 AM!

This style of yoga experience begins with Yin, still & passive ~ Then midway an energizing dynamic prana flow creating euphoria ~ We end again in Yin…..
Prana is energy animating your body, mind, and spirit giving you life, it can be increased through breath, life experiences, and food.Traditional yoga practice in North America is typically Yang Yoga (active). It usually targets the muscles with active stretching and breathing exercises. Yin yoga is the counterbalance to the practice of yang yoga and is sometimes referred to as yoga for the joints. What does that mean? This yoga form begins with relaxing muscles and targets the ligaments, tendons, and joints. Yin postures involve longer periods of holding, this stretches and strengthens connective tissue that aremuch deeper than superficial or muscular tissue. Yang is considered more dynamic because it stretches and strengthens muscular tissues with an emphasis on internal heating. Yin focuses on the connections in the pelvis, hips, & lower spine. Most yang postures involve standing while most yin postures involve sitting or laying down. Many yoga masters feel the combination of Yin and Yang poses balance each other out and give the body the full experience it truly needs. It is even suggested that practicing only the yang side of yoga is only half of the asana (postures) practice.  
The real challenge isn’t deciding which one is best to do. It’s how to achieve both to create a balance for the mind, body, and spirit. Yoga masters seeking liberation, or moksha, do not practice only one side. Come with me and fall into the rhythmic stillness of “PranaflowYin”
