Kelly Winkler

Kelly Winkler

Kelly has worked with children in many different environments over the past 23 years, however, one thing remained constant, her belief that the most important things she could bring a child were self-confidence, strength, and the power to create their own inner peace through self regulation. Therefore, she has become passionate about sharing yoga and mindfulness to help create homes and classrooms filled with emotionally regulated and confident children and adults.
