Kellie has been practicing yoga since 2008. She fell in love with the discipline while looking for a way to find strength during her battle with breast cancer and the side-effects of chemotherapy, surgeries and other procedures. She began taking gentle yoga classes and before long, became as physically strong and mentally confident as she was before. Within a few short months of practicing yoga, she was stronger than she had ever been, which led her to seek out more challenging classes. During her quest for a greater challenge, she discovered hot and power yoga and has been practicing and training in this discipline since. In 2009, with a lot of encouragement from friends, Kellie began teaching yoga to a small group of friends. She credits the discipline with bringing her mind and body back to life and she is passionate about sharing these benefits with her students. In 2011, she opened her first yoga studio and today she owns and operates 2 yoga studios in Illinois, Go Yoga! Express and Go Yoga! Express Belleville. Kellie teaches yoga classes, leads workshops, yoga teacher training programs and continuing education classes.
