Keli's lifelong love of yoga began at age 7 when she did her first Sun Salutations at the Vivekananda Vedanta Vihar, an ashram in the foothills of the Catskills. As a teacher, she is known for her playful, joy filled classes, and fluid sequencing. Her classes are down to earth, yet filled with delightful sacred stories and uplifting music and songs. Keli has been teaching for more than a decade, and has lead and assisted Bhakti based yoga retreats in the US, India and Costa Rica. She believes yoga is a practice of embodied spiritual awakening that should be accessible to all & teaches regularly in the the Hudson Valley and Capital District, where she lives with her husband and three children.
“I honestly can’t say enough good things about this space, the land, the facilities, the staff, the stewards, their events. I will never forget this place and hope to come back. Forever grateful for such beautiful blessings!”
“It’s such an amazing and spiritual location–I came back feeling rejuvenated and recharged… It was so very special knowing the place belongs to the Dalai Lama! I loved our room. My favorite things were that there was no TV in the room, the beds were so comfortable, and it was so quiet and relaxing there with the windows opened. The grounds were amazing…”
“The breathtaking landscapes and fresh mountain air take all stress away the minute you arrive. The natural surroundings completely captivate you.”
