I found yoga ten years ago after my husband passed away from cancer. I had two young boys to raise, but I was fortunate to have family that helped me through challenging times. I found yoga to be different than any other exercise regimen I’d ever done. With any psychical activity, you release endorphins therefore you feel better, but with yoga I experienced something more. Yoga helped me clear my mind, be present and start to manifest my life moving forward. Often in class, I refer to my yoga mat as my therapist. I started teaching six years ago and I am here because I want to share what yoga has done for me. In my class, I share my passion and love. Yoga has enhanced my life and here I am NOW to give you that same sense of enhancement.

Her love of yoga is spread through her desire to offer the practice to others. As a mother of two, she keeps grounded and grateful through her practice of yoga.

Kaelan plays upbeat, contemporary music in her classes. She believes that yoga can offer a fun, empowering activity that can help teens deal with stress and the transitions they face.
Transformed by my teachers, life experiences and different styles of yoga that I have practiced over the last 10 years including Bikram, Ashtanga, Hatha, Jivamukti and Iyengar, I bring a sense of empowerment, both physical and internal, to every class. Through intention, humor, pranayama and asana my goal is to have every student leave class feeling refreshed, renewed, worked out and powerful. My style of teaching focuses on clear instruction that underscores the important relationship between alignment, breath, fluid movement and strength. I give students both a vigorous and strong physical practice as well as offer an internal connection. I put an emphasis on thoughtful, intelligent sequencing and pace. My classes are physically and mentally challenging, however I always work to meet the students where they are each day. I deliver each class in English and Sanskrit, with music, demonstrations when needed and hands on adjustments. My goal with every class is to create a space for work, expression, enthusiasm, fun, connection, renewal, contemplation and reflection.
