Kelly-Ann is a Mermaid Gypsea Yogini and the owner of I Am Mermaid. She is a 200 hour Yoga Alliance registered yoga teacher (RYT) and a World Paddle Association (WPA) certified Stand Up Paddle (SUP) and SUP Yoga instructor. Kelly-Ann was first introduced to SUP in 2010 while working as a sea kayak guide for Pender Island Kayak Adventures. She was instantly hooked on SUP and the rest is ... History! She completed her yoga teacher training at the Yandara Yoga Institute in Baja, Mexico, and is a Paddle Into Fitness Ambassador trained by Roxy Pro-SUP athlete Gillian Gibree. Kelly-Ann teaches Hatha- Vinyasa flow and Yin Yoga classes in addition to her on-the-water SUP yoga classes. When she's not doing yoga and SUP, she swims with the Pender Island Otters Masters Swim Club and has completed such open water distance swimming events as the "Escape from Alcatraz" in San Francisco, the "Auckland Harbour Crossing" in New Zealand, and even crossing from our very own North Pender Island to Saturna Island. She is also a lifetime surf student and truly "lives the search" for her next travel surf destination; She hopes to one day be able to say that she's surfed on every continent of the world! Kelly-Ann's personal yoga practice and spiritual journey lead her to the creation of I am Mermaid. Through her teaching and retreats she aims to inspire and spark that passion within to do what you love. "Let the beauty of what we love be what we do" ~Rumi
