Kelly Wampler, 500 E-RYT, YACEP®
Like many before, Kelly sought out yoga for the exercise and to increase flexibility, but as she began to practice in 2008 she realized that yoga went much deeper than she originally thought. She has been so incredibly blessed with wonderful teachers along this path that have instilled all of the aspects of yoga in their classes, teaching her that yoga is not just a physical practice but so much more. Making the decision to become a full time yoga teacher in 2017, was a scary one on many levels, but she felt the call and decided to follow it. This eventually led to the discovery of the passion of mentoring and teaching teachers and what better place to do so than where her journey actually began, alongside her beloved teachers at Yandara. Kelly feels yoga is a life-long practice and she is so grateful to be on this path of teaching, learning and sharing yoga with the world. Her goal is to teach authentically and from the heart, hoping that as you practice you will not only learn from her, but more importantly you will learn things about yourself!
Kelly has a passion for sequencing and instilling functional movement in her asana classes along with the aspects of Bhakti yoga as well.
