Kelli was introduced to yoga during her college years and began an in-home practice to support her interest and involvement in various forms of exercise. Practicing sporadically for many years, Kelli rediscovered a regular practice in 2005 while awaiting the birth of her first daughter. At that time, Kelli lived in Louisville, Kentucky and was able to practice both in her home and in a yoga studio. She has been faithful to the practice of yoga ever since. After moving back to the mountains of eastern Kentucky, Kelli completed her prenatal vinyasa yoga certification in 2010 through the Asheville Yoga Center in North Carolina. She dedicated time to practicing in her community and supported the efforts of friends who began one of the first yoga studios in southeastern Kentucky, North Fork Yoga, substitute teaching there on occasion. In 2015, Kelli will complete her second certification which is a dual certificate in Kundalini and Hatha yoga styles through the Yoga Teacher Training Program by Anmol Mehta.
