Kelly A. Hurley
"Yoga is a practice that should be accessible and available to everyone. I strive to provide a yoga opportunity to anyone who believes they can't do yoga or their body doesn't work for yoga. These are the people who make up my yoga tribe - supporting, believing in, and loving each other as a community on and off the mat."
Kelly realized the transformative power of yoga when she began her practice at the suggestion of a doctor in 2009, after the onset of debilitating health challenges including six spinal surgeries, two spinal fusions, subdural hygroma of the lumbar spine, Fibromyalgia, connective tissue and autoimmune disease, and severe and significant hearing loss resulting in her need of hearing aids. As well as permanent neurological side effects as a result of West Nile Encephalitis (WNE). The physical healing, as well as the restoration of spirit, solidified Kelly’s decision to change career paths, become a yoga teacher and focus her studies and teaching on Adaptive and Accessible Yoga.
Teaching from a place of understanding, empathy, and compassion, Kelly is thorough in her instruction: ensuring the safety of her students, cueing proper alignment to the individual, freely and always using props in class, offering modifications and teaching slowly and stopping as necessary to answer questions or take additional time to explain and demonstrate postures. Additionally, Kelly incorporates breathing and meditation methods into her instruction as a means for balancing asana and life on and off the mat.
