Kelly found yoga in 2008 through her masters degree in Exeter, UK. Kelly's MFA focussed on cultivating the mind-body connection through studying the Southeast Asian practices of yoga, t'ai chi and kalaripayattu. Subsequently, Kelly earned her PhD in 2015, which further looked at psychophysical practices in an interdisciplinary study between sport-science and performance practice. Kelly completed her 350hr Hatha Vinyasa teacher training in 2019 through the Wisdom Yoga Institute, here in Perth. Kelly's research informs her yoga teaching and her classes incorporate a strong mix between psychophysical connection, strength, and fluidity.
