Kelsy is a Yoga Alliance registered yoga instructor who has undergone over 500 hours of yoga teacher training. She's studied in Seattle, WA and in Rishikesh, India. She has also taken many continuing education courses such as trauma-informed yoga teacher training through Yoga Behind Bars, workshops through Yoga International and more.
Having taught hundreds of classes at gyms, studios, homes, online, in businesses and residential communities, Kelsy is a well-rounded instructor capable of teaching all levels of yoga practitioners.
Kelsy’s passion for yoga continues to grow as she observes the transformations experienced by herself, her students and other regular yoga practitioners. One of the most gratifying experiences she’s had as a yoga instructor has been as a volunteer for the inmates at the prison in Monroe, WA. The amount of physical, mental and spiritual gains the inmates have seen with frequent practice have been astounding. Kelsy continues to volunteer for Yoga Behind Bars, teaching a 2 hour course at the Monroe Correctional Facility 2 to 3 times a month.
In her previous career, Kelsy worked as the director of communications for Hale’s Ales brewery creating internal and public newsletters, managing the website, managing the brewery’s social media and directing a festival team for outside events.
When not teaching yoga, Kelsy stays busy raising her two young daughters, traveling, hiking, skiing, rock climbing and salsa dancing. She is the president of the MOMS Club®️ of Bellevue and enjoys connecting with other moms in her chapter. She also loves to host dinner parties for friends and family.
