By taking the Hi Yoga Teacher Training, I have come to better appreciate the benefit of taking a heart-centric approach to my own yoga practice, to teaching kids and even adult yoga. I better appreciate the need for yoga to be grounded in day-to-day life.–Dane F.
When teaching my first Kids Yoga class, I saw that their knowledge of yoga was simply on exercise and funny animal poses. From our Hi Yoga Training, I knew how to explain the fundamentals: breathing, pause and caring for the heart. I had no idea how much joy teaching kids would bring my own heart.–Veronica V.
The Karuna Yoga Teacher Training was a wonderful, life-changing experience. Kelly's training taught me so much about myself. My yoga and meditation practice changed in such a positive way.–Lauren F.
Hi Yoga is the single most inspiring educational experience in my life. Kelly shares her gifts and passion for teaching yoga to kids with wisdom, reverence, and compassion. The Hi Yoga program is designed around definitive science, creating brighter and more engaged children. She fosters creativity, open hearts, respect for self and others in each young yogi she encounters. I have been teaching yoga for 5 years and working with kids for 15 years. Kelly's training reignited my passion for both and gave me the tools to encourage kids of all ages to explore the fun & honor in practicing yoga. I am privileged to share Kelly's extraordinary vision in positively changing the world, one beautiful child at a time.–Petri B.

Her training style maintains the highest integrity for the science and art of yoga as she provides relevant information, attention to accuracy, and inspirational insights.
