I had many magical experiences during my two week stay in Samara, not the least of which, being the classes I took with Kelly. I own two Yoga studios in Massachusetts ( Vinyasa Yoga,) and have been teaching for over two decades--suffice to say I'm appreciative of every class I can take with a teacher, but also discerning. When I did the research on Yoga classes in Samara, Kelly's name popped up and the location where she then taught was a 5 minute walk from our house. What a beautiful gift to me, as Kelly's classes were truly magical and memorable, even now over a year later.
Her Yoga classes are thoughtful, heart centered, intelligently sequenced and as challenging as you want them to be. She offers modifications and truly allows space for all levels, including leveling up. Her barre classes are torture, lol...but I mean that in the best way. I teach a similar modality as well and appreciated her encouragement through the workout. So hard, but SO FUN and a lovely compliment to the Yoga practice.
I am looking forward to going back to Samara for a variety of reasons...I mean, it's as close to paradise as I've found. When I do land there again? I know what one of my first stops will be--Kelly's class, at her new studio that looks beautiful!!! I can't wait to see it. I cannot recommend her classes enough.
