Hi beautiful people, my name is Kelly!  I arrived to Costa Rica 20 years ago as a backpacker longing to see the world, take a break from the fast paced life I knew and begin a journey of self discovery.  I was aware as soon as I stepped foot in Costa Rica it would be a place I forever held close to my heart.  What I didn't know was the way my life would unfold over the next few years.  To make a long story short, I fell in love with more than just the country, trusted my intuition and have been blessed to live here ever since.  You will find me in gorgeous Playa Carrillo deep in study, on my sacred mat, facilitating yoga teacher trainings & retreats, relaxing with my toes in the sand, the sun upon my face and watching my children run wild and free along the beach.  I am dedicated to personal development and my continued education as an E-RTY 500 yoga educator and mentor.   My husband, John and I are the Founders of Chillasana Yoga Surf and Chillasana Yoga Studio.  We started our small family business in 2010 with the intention to help others with their mental, emotional, energetic, physical and spiritual health while connecting with the elements of Costa Rica.  I am grateful and excited to share with you all that I have integrated into my practice and teaching over the last 20 years.  My purpose as a yoga teacher is to empower you through the practice of yoga, awareness and personal development to create positive changes that allow you to show up more effectively in all areas of your life.  I challenge you to face your blocks and limiting beliefs to create more freedom and flow.  My public classes are intuitively guided and created around those who arrive each day, their specific needs and requests as well as the energy of the group.  Your time on your mat is your experience - I am there to hold space for you to arrive into each breath and each moment exactly as you are.  A space for you to get curious about who you are and how you’re showing up in your life and in your relationships.  I look forward to spending time with you on and off the mat!

Vinyasa

Experience the power of Vinyasa Yoga with our experienced teacher. Our Vinyasa classes focus on connecting your breath and movement to create a free-flowing practice that becomes a moving meditation. You’ll flow from one asana to the next, increasing your breath awareness and improving your mind-body connection. Each class is adapted to the energy in the room and the individuals present, so you can get the most out of your practice.  

Slow Flow Vinyasa

Slow Flow Vinyasa – a gentle yet invigorating journey through mindful movement. This class offers a slower-paced Vinyasa experience, inviting you to embrace challenges while also savoring moments of stillness and connection. Prepare to delve deeper into each posture with extended holds, allowing you to explore and refine your alignment. Embracing deliberate and slower transitions between poses, this class cultivates a heightened sense of mindfulness and awareness throughout your practice. With a focus on strength-building and a thorough exploration of foundational asanas, you'll have ample time to understand the nuances of each posture.  Expect discussions on alignment, functionality, and target areas to deepen your practice. What makes each session unique is its adaptability to the participants present that day. We tailor the class around your preferences, requests, and the collective energy in the room, ensuring a personalized and enriching experience every time you join us. Step into Slow Flow Vinyasa to discover the harmonious blend of challenge, mindfulness, and personalized guidance, allowing you to cultivate strength, alignment, and a deeper connection to your practice.

Gentle Yoga

Our Gentle Yoga class is the perfect way to slow down and ground yourself. This Hatha practice is designed for anyone - with very few standing postures, slow movements, gentle stretches, and light meditation throughout the practice. Whether you're a newer yoga student or a seasoned practitioner, this class is an amazing opportunity to focus on all layers of your experience; body, mind, energy, emotions and soul.  Join us for a transformative and relaxing experience.

Multi Barre

Our barre class is an invigorating full-body workout that is both challenging and rewarding. Our classes are designed to work your arms, legs, abdominals, and glutes, building strength and endurance.   There are no dance-like movements, no requirement for flexibility, no cardio, and no previous experience is necessary.  We use small micro movements, light hand-held weights,  resistance bands and balls to help you target specific muscle groups.  This class produces immediate results, regardless of your level of fitness or experience.   Join us for a full body workout - sweat, shake and burn!!!

“When carving stone, the sculptor removes everything that is not the statue.  The art of revealing beauty lies in removing what conceals it.  So, too, Patanjali [in the Yoga Sutras] tells us that wholeness exists within us.  Our work is to chisel away at everything that is not essence, not Self.”
