Instructor, Kaylen Jolly
I am certified as a 500 hour Yoga teacher, BASI pilates instructor, and a Psychosomatic Therapist and have a deep understanding of how and why we move our bodies. My yoga classes are accessible to every ‘level’ of being. My offering to students is to connect to their own personal intention and to honor the physical and emotional body that they arrive with. I hope to empower you to meet yourself anew each day; to really allow your ‘Be-ing’ to express authentically. My belief is that through every breath, every transition, every posture, you can choose to align towards what is purposeful in your life and allow your practice to be that of expressing your own personal desires with yourSelf--enriching your experience in your body and in your life.
