New classes for a new year
Kat Kelly M.Ed, RYT-200
16 years ago, Kat began attending weekly yoga classes which quickly became a priority in her weekly schedule. The health benefits for the physical, mental and spiritual body made her a believer in the science based results of yoga practice. Yoga brought her a sense of balance, increased focus and calm. Partial retirement from her 40+ year career as an early childhood speech therapist allowed her to deepen her yoga practice. Through study and participation in a 200 hour yoga teacher training with Tina Stroh, Director/Founder of Just Plain Yoga, Camp Hill, PA, she began the preparations for sharing yoga with others. She then completed a Registered Children’s Yoga Teacher Training (RCYT) with a trauma informed focus through Yoga.Ed. Currently, she is compiling required teaching hours with children to finalize her RCYT designation through Yoga Alliance.
It’s been a blessing for her to privately teach gentle yoga for beginners and now shares the joy of yoga with little ones at day care programs for Peaceful Poses Kids Yoga, Ann Fields, Founder/Director, Camp Hill, PA.
Michele Einig, MS, RYT-200
Looking for a way to de-stress from the responsibilities of raising two small children, Michele registered for a 6-week beginner Kripalu yoga class in the late 1990’s and has been practicing yoga ever since. With extra time on her hands during the pandemic, she was able to enrich her personal practice and develop an even deeper understanding of the physical and mental benefits of yoga. It was her professional life, however, that inspired the desire to become a yoga teacher. As a mentor for at-risk youth, Michele recognized the need for making yoga and mindfulness tools accessible to young people. It became apparent through her interactions with her young clients that yoga could support them by fostering self-awareness and helping them to find a sense of balance and peace amid life’s many challenges.
Michele earned her RYT-200 through study and instruction with Just Plain Yoga Studio, Tina Stroh, Owner/Director. She has additional training in teaching teen yoga with a trauma-informed approach and is currently working toward completion of requirements for her RCYT (Registered Children’s Yoga Teacher) through Yoga Ed. She has offered yoga to students at an alternative school as well as youthful offenders participating in a wilderness challenge program.
Michele believes in the power of yoga to help people of all ages learn how to manage stress, regulate emotions, encourage healing and promote overall wellness.
