brandy kelley

owner/e-ryt 200 yoga instructor and yaecp/

comprehensively certified pilates instructor

Opening a Yoga studio has been a dream of Brandy's ever since she received her 200 hour Yoga certification in 2014 from Sangha Center for Yoga and Wellness. Since then, she has taken several scary, yet, exhilarating, life changing leaps, in order to make her dream a reality-opening Shakti Yoga & Pilates! Shakti represents the creative energy that is within us, our intuitive, motivating force, our personal power, and our ability to move and change. To help her students tap into this, Brandy's classes are based on the energy and needs of the students who show up. Her Yoga classes incorporate astrological influences, Yoga philosophy, and the wisdom of Ayurveda and Traditional Chinese Medicine  (two sciences that teach us that what is going on in nature is also going on inside of us) to help her students feel more balanced as they move through their own changes.  Brandy also completed her Comprehensive Pilates certification through Lates Pilates. in 2020 and believes this practice is a beautiful way to offer movement that is supportive and sustainable for life. Her Pilates classes are ever changing, fun, and a good challenge for the mind and body. Brandy has experienced positive mental, emotional, and physical changes through both of these practices and she's thrilled to offer both disciplines to you.  Brandy hopes that the energy she's put into Shakti will help to set a spark off within you too!

matthew duggan

200 hr certified yoga instructor

Slow and steady. Useful advice for races and your practice. Although he received his 200 hr. training in a Power Yoga program, Matthew takes a more deliberate approach to his practice. Find the pose, settle in, hold it. Nothing too flashy, just tried and tested asanas to help you discover a whole new level of your practice.


kelsey clark

ryt 500 yoga instructor, usui reiki level 1, prenatal yoga 85 hr 

Yoga found me at a YMCA in 2009 and it was love at first breath. My yoga practice has evolved from a solely physical practice to a daily opportunity to hit the pause button, breathe, and return to my soul. It serves as my antidote to the chaos of modern life. 

My class offerings are rooted in gentle yoga, yin, restorative, and Nidra and influenced by related modalities such as Reiki and Chakra energy work.
