About Kelley

Kelley, her daughter, and their two dogs, Live in New Orleans, Louisiana. Serving others is a passion of Kelley’s, that started over twenty years ago in her native city near Chicago, Illinois. It was there, Kelley was an Activity Director for seniors with dementia and brain disease. Her days were spent providing quality and therapeutic programs consisting of art, history, music, and of course, Yoga. An opportunity brought her to New Orleans sixteen years ago. Kelley’s love for animals and knowledge of behavior and business has allowed her to successfully co- run a doggy daycare for the past thirteen years.

Kelley has practiced Yoga for over twenty years. Having her daughter made her realize how a regular yoga practice can be “OMazingly” beneficial and help promote not just strength and coordination, but provides a sense of calmness and relaxation with children.
It was then, Kelley discovered Kidding Around Yoga. Because of their extremely well developed approach to teaching children the science of Yoga, Kelley decided to complete her yoga certification with Kidding Around Yoga.  Kelley also attended Transform Nola, A yoga training school where she received her 200hr RYT certification to teach adults.

In New Orleans and all over the world, through creativity, love, and knowledge, Kelley hopes to share yoga and peacefulness for ALL children everywhere.

Girl Scouts

Hello local Scouts and neighborhood leaders!

I would love the opportunity to introduce the Science of Yoga to your troop/den and help them earn a Yoga Fun Patch.

While teaching the Science of Yoga, KAY provides a curriculum that is specifically designed to help children be active, learn to relax, improve focus, and have FUN in a non-competitive environment. I will offer a class customized for your troop level, which can include a special scout story, meditation techniques, games, activities, and much more!

I teach all troop/den levels and can even do private sessions as well.

I look forward to hearing from your organization to schedule a class soon.
