Kellie has been practicing yoga since 2008. She fell in love with yoga while looking for a way to regain strength, while battling breast cancer and the debilitating side-effects of chemotherapy, countless surgeries and medical procedures. She began taking gentle yoga classes and before long, became as strong and confident as she was pre-diagnosis. Within a few short months of practicing yoga, she was stronger than she had ever been in her life. Kellie’s mission is to share her healing and empowering experience with you. In 2009, with a little prodding, Kellie began teaching yoga to a small group of friends. Two years later, she and her business partners opened Yoga Core and More. Kellie is passionate about continuing her education as a teacher, constantly learning and practicing new skills to empower each and every student she has the honor to teach. She currently holds two yoga teaching certifications and is working on two more certifications. She is both, a 200 hour Registered Yoga Teacher, certified through Yoga Alliance and a Tier 1 Certified Baptiste Teacher. In addition, she is currently working on her 500 hour Registered Yoga Teacher certification and continues to train with Baron Baptiste and The Baptiste Power Yoga Institute, where she is in the process of becoming a Tier 2 Certified Baptiste Teacher. More recently, Kellie has added personal inquiry and meditation to her practice and teaching.
