Kelly Moore is a writer and yoga teacher in Washington, D.C. and New York. She completed her teacher training with Erich Schiffmann.
Kelly came to yoga as a result of a hip flexor injury she suffered almost 10 years ago while jogging in Bosnia, where she was working for the United Nations. She worked for several more years in government, including for the U.S. State Department and the 9-11 Commission. After years of yoga practice and study she decided to give up her job in national security and devote herself full-time to natural health and yoga.
Her goal is to teach students to do their own yoga with a sense of joy so that it actually feels good doing it. Kelly’s classes are known for creative flows, cool and eclectic music and playful humor. She encourages her students to be attentive to their inner guidance so they are able to feel their way into a pose, tweaking and fiddling with it until they arrive at the point of perfect flow, and to practice with a sense of acceptance of their limits, an open heart and to be totally immersed in the moment as it unfolds. Her students also benefit from her knowledge of health, healing and anatomy gained as a natural health practitioner.
Kelly has been published by the New York Times, U.S. News & World Report, the Huffington Post and the Christian Science Monitor. She is the author of Secrets of an Accidental Yogi: Yoga Wisdom for Better Health, Less Stress & Great Sex.
I meet lots of yoga students who want to practice more often but just can't find the time. When I ask if they practice at home the answer is almost always, "No." Starting a home practice isn't really as daunting as you might think.
