In addition to a great workout and all-important “me” time, my body just hurts less and works better than it ever has before in my adult life.Kelly’s accessibility in between sessions is also astonishing.Her sessions were therapeutic and almost indescribable; each one was tailored to how I was feeling that day and what my goals were.
“I have wanted to try yoga for years, but for just as long, have had reservations about group classes.
At first, I was simply embarrassed about trying something new in front of so many people.
I feel wonderful now, and I’m able to enjoy my sons as they are growing up, whether it involves running, jumping, climbing, swimming & walking long distances. After years of back problems that forced me into physical therapy and using medication to take off the edge, I wanted a remedy that wasn’t dependent on prescriptions or medical appointments.
I thought yoga would be a natural way to heal and develop a manageable approach to lifelong exercise, but I couldn’t get the direct and consistent instruction I felt I needed in classes to progress.
As a result, I stopped going to the gym, stopped exercising outside, and felt that I was relegated to an exercise regime revolving around the treadmill in my basement — not my idea of fun.
Kelly has had such a meaningful personal impact, that I’ve even signed up for Higher Ground’s custom yoga retreat offering — asking Kelly to offer classes on a vacation I’m taking with my girlfriends to the Mayan Riviera — so that she can share her sense of serenity, personalized classes and signature ‘moves a woman can use’ with my friends.
Then, the reasons for my discomfort became much more acute.
Several years ago, I developed a health condition that affects the way I look and makes it very difficult for me to exercise in front of other people.
Practicing in my home also allowed me to achieve a deep level of complete comfort and vulnerability that I have found unachievable in a group environment.
With Kelly’s instruction and guidance, my yoga reached a level I thought I would only ever dream about.” Julie, 32 Mom & Exercise Physiologist Sarone, Italy Not only does she makes yoga physically accessible by holding sessions at one’s home or office (I’ve done both), but she also makes it conceptually accessible — I finally feel as though I understand what my body is supposed to be doing! Kelly made sure to address both my pregnancy and lower back issues, and her expertise was evident from the beginning.
The post-pregnancy back-to-shape yoga sessions have been equally valuable, for both body and mind.
