When you attend a Kelli Russell yoga class, you will discover that you have superpowers.

Kelli will inspire you to explore, push yourself out of your comfort zone, and believe that you can attempt poses you never thought possible. In her class, you will be empowered- you will be encouraged and supported and cared for.


As a former counselor, Kelli has the intuition and the sensitivity to make everyone, from the beginning practitioner to the most advanced student, feel comfortable and challenged.


Through her YogaBoost business, Kelli inspires companies to offer opportunities for their employees to move and to reduce stress, and provide tools to combat the effects of sitting at a desk during the work day.
