Kelly Fisher, C-IAYT, E-RYT 500, YACEP, believes in the physical and spiritual healing power of yoga, and aims to empower her students to live fully and freely by achieving balance through her challenging yet calming instruction. Her style is rooted in many years of meditation practice and her multidisciplinary study of hatha yoga, tantric philosophy and ayurveda. She was one of the first in the country to earn a Yoga Therapist certification from the International Association of Yoga Therapists and she emphasizes proper alignment so that her students can efficiently release tension while also building energy and strength. In 2017 she earned her certifications as a Yoga for Healthy Aging teacher from Baxter Bell and as an Ayurvedic Yoga Specialist from the Himalayan Institute. Through practice of yoga asana and breath work, her students are gently guided to deeper places within their own hearts, bodies, and minds so that underlying knowledge and strength can manifest in their daily lives.
