Kelly’s Prenatal Teacher Training was an amazing experience in which a community of women came together to develop a deeper knowledge of the birthing process and how yoga has the ability to support a healthy pregnancy and labor.  Through Kelly’s guidance, I now have the tools to help provide women with a way to connect with their baby, their ever changing body, and with each other.  The course forever changed my life, and has opened a new way of thinking for me. ~Jacqui Stix, 2014 Graduate
I didn’t realize how much prenatal yoga goes beyond learning movement for pregnancy. Kelly is a wealth of information regarding the asana, anatomy, and spiritual/ goddess-empowerment. I was totally inspired by Kelly and her work and feel very excited to be able to share what I’ve learned. ~Helen Davis, 2016 Graduate
Instructor Bio:

kellyKelly Devi, RPYT, CCCE, CLC, is an Integral Yoga teacher with certifications in general hatha, prenatal, postnatal and restorative yoga.  She is also a doula, childbirth educator, lactation counselor, and mom.  It is Kelly’s strong desire to help women connect with the sacredness of pregnancy and labor by developing trust in the body’s ability to give birth.  Kelly’s classes include a strong focus on pelvic floor awareness, its connection to the breath and ways to find space, stability and comfort during pregnancy.  Students also gain a deeper understanding of the physical, emotional, and spiritual changes of pregnancy, as well as the importance of honoring the body’s needs during each trimester.  Kelly’s ultimate goal however is to encourage pregnant women to fully embrace their innate power and awesome ability to grow, nurture and birth babies from that deep maternal place of “knowing”.  Kelly has worked with hundreds of pregnant women and their partners in the past decade.  As she continues to witness the profound nature of birth first-hand, her dedication to this work has only grown and deepened.
