I really enjoyed the class. It was a great mix of readings, hands-on and getting to know one another and share ideas. It was well worth the time and money.

Taking any kind of teacher training with Kelly is going to be an amazing, rewarding, and highly impactful experience. Not only did Kelly clearly set us up for success with plenty of chances to experience yoga nidra, but she also guided us through important philosophical discussions so that we're prepared for the kinds of questions future students may ask us. I couldn't ask for a kinder, more intuitive teacher. Can't wait for the next opportunity to learn!
I can't begin to tell you how wonderful my yoga workshop was with Kelly and Sam. It was very thought provoking, educational and inspiring. I learned to much about different forms of yoga, health and nutrition and about myself. I look forward to the next yoga workshop in December. Thank you so much! On a scale of marvelous to fantastic, you get a triple stupendous.
I had an amazing experience with this 25 hour meditation training. Kelly was such a fun, informative, and compassionate leader and I genuinely enjoyed the whole experience! I had very little experience with meditation and came out feeling like I had been doing it for years. Definitely recommend to anyone trying to improve his or her life!
Kelly is the best! Always very professional, prepared and kind to everyone. Really enjoyed it!
The workshop was phenomenal! Everything was organized well, and the teaching was, per usual, of the highest quality. There was so much to cover, but it didn't seem overwhelming thanks to strategic breaks and Kelly's intuition of when we needed to change gears. The setting was this gorgeous house, and even the weather blessed us with the soundtrack of rain to help lull us into a more meditative state. Overall, it was a fantastic opportunity to meet amazing new people, bond over an appreciation of meditation, and learn what we needed to not only set up a powerful personal practice, but also prepare us for leading others in a more meditative life.
Kelly was a great instructor and the training was incredible. She provided the class with an amazing manual that she wrote herself. I hope to take a class with her again in the future.

Kelly is the best! The setting was beautiful, food was delicious, and the yoga classes were perfect. The choices of activities or not was wonderful. I chose to spend time by myself napping, reading, and using the hot tub. If she does this retreat next year I will definitely attend!
This was a wonderful experience. Very beautiful location and doing yoga in a yurt was fantastic. I really enjoyed the fellowship with people I didn't know. It was a learning experience that took me out of my comfort zone. The meals were delicious and very healthy. This retreat had a nice balance of free time and organized activities. I really had a great time and learned many things to strengthen my yoga and meditation practice. Kelly is a very skilled and organized leader.

This was the best yoga retreat I've been on to date. First, the location was gorgeous, close to great activities, and the house where we stayed was comfortable, clean, and set up well for our needs. Having a hot tub was a great addition, and the yurt for yoga was GORGEOUS. However, location is only a tiny part of a retreat. What really makes or breaks the experience is the person leading the retreat. Kelly is phenomenal in this regard. She began with excellent communication before the retreat, checking on nutritional needs of the guests, any special requests, and giving valuable information on traveling and activities, as well as packing suggestions. She even helped me connect with other locals leaving from my location in Missouri so we could carpool. Once there, we found everything organized well, including little gifts on our beds to help us settle in and an itinerary that helped us plan our days. While everything was ultimately optional, most of us participated in everything, and still had time to do other activities, like exploring the local area and spending some time at the beach. The yoga sessions were geared for multiple levels of ability, and she was very clear about giving modifications for those who wanted more or less challenge. She also worked with us during private sessions, and bent over backwards (sometimes literally) to make us feel comfortable, encouraged, and loved. If you ever have a chance to go to a retreat, and want a highly supportive, engaging, and restorative experience, I highly recommend anything by Kelly or Yoga for You. It doesn't matter if you're a complete newbie to yoga and meditation, or are an experienced instructor looking for a break--she will provide an experience you will treasure forever.
