Kelly’s classes are powerful and playful, and enthused with her infectious energy. She empowers students with a deeper understanding of the physical body. To explore the effects of subtle changes, and how these reflect both the physical body and the spirit. A true warrior. A beautiful heart. And a gifted teacher.
Kelly is one of the most experienced and knowledgeable Yoga teachers I have come across in my many years of practice. Her classes are always challenging, but at the same time great fun. As her students, we are often reminded not to take ourselves too seriously, but laugh often, which is so refreshing. While Kelly’s classes are profound and spiritual, she always manages to keep things light hearted.
Kelly ensures that each of her students progresses at their own pace, encouraging true engagement in the practice. She has a keen eye for alignment and she gently guides her students towards correct postures and body alignment. Kelly has the gift of teaching us to embrace who we are fully, with boundless love and compassion, and to treasure our bodies and our minds. Kelly lives the Yoga way, she is truly passionate about what she does and her teachings come straight from the heart. I love being her student and look forward to many more classes, both as a Yoga student and as a teacher trainee.
Kelly is the One&Only teacher. She is like a first love that you ll never forget.
I’ll be always remembering my first Kelly’s class around 5 years ago. The theme was so inspiring to me “…. Yogamat is a magic carpet for you. Fly and travel in your magic world. Explore each little space of your magic environment….”, something like that. And I was surprisingly immersed in my inner heart to discover myself, discover the Shiva and Shakti in the Union- dance.
Spirituality apart, I got the best alignment, the idea of Anusara style, its like yoga for an intelligent people.
Thanks Kelly, huge love.
Kelly is an inspiring, energizing and compassionate teacher. I have taken classes from her over the years and also did her 200-hour teacher training two years ago. It was amazing! Not only were the lessons well-planned and thorough, but she also made it fun to learn to teach. I would definitely recommend her if you are interested in a spiritual, physical and fun experience, for any level of yogi or yogini!
Ho avuto la fortuna di incontrare Kelly sul mio cammino dello yoga, sia frequentando le sue lezioni, sia quale insegnante al teacher training (200h Yoga Alliance) organizzato sotto la sua guida. La sua vasta conoscenza delle tecniche, degli allineamenti e dei principi dell’Anusara, mi conduce ogni volta a sentire e capire il mio corpo, e nel contempo a esplorare il lato più spirituale della pratica dello yoga. Con sicurezza Kelly riesce ad accompagnare i suoi allievi nelle posizioni più avanzate, permettendo di abbandonare con fiducia la loro comfort zone. Le lezioni di Kelly sono sempre nuove, divertenti, stimolanti e per me fonte di grande ispirazione.
I have attended Kelly’s classes under a 7-year period. No class with Kelly is ever the same, she always manages to insert something new and fresh. Because of her extensive experience and wide scope of knowledge of the practice, it doesn’t matter what level you are, she gives you the confidence through her genuine ability and mastery of yoga. But what makes her classes special, is that she always has something meaningful and sincere to share and you leave her classes feeling like elevated.
Kelly’s lessons are always inspirational and unique. You always come out of them a bit transformed, not only in the body but also in your soul. She really teaches you how to bring your practice into your life.
Kelly teaches from her heart. Her classes and trainings are challenging and engaging. By way of example, she inspires students to fully engage in their practice both physically and spiritually, asking us often if we “Feel” what she’s demonstrating or speaking about. She offers her deep knowledge of the body, the practice and teaching with both openness and generosity which makes it a wonderfully loving experience to take part in her teachings.
Le persone ormai fanno yoga nei luoghi piu’ disparati: in spiaggia, sui monti nella neve, nei giardini in centro città, ma avete mai fatto yoga vicino a un vulcano? No?! allora non avete mai fatto yoga con Kelly! Quando inizia la lezione potete sentire l’energia che sale come farebbe il magma, poi sentirete l’esplosione e incomincerete ad avvertire il calore che si diffonde nel corpo, la mente lascerà tutti i suoi pensieri in un luogo lontano… perché Kelly sa portare l’attenzione sul vostro corpo come pochi altri. Quando terrete una posizione a lungo, per carpirne i segreti, ascoltando in voi, ogni singolo muscolo… sentirete la terra tremare sotto i vostri piedi, ma niente paura! Kelly vi sosterrà come farebbe una montagna.
Scoprirete come il vostro corpo reagisce alle cose, come la vostra mente può restare su quello che state facendo senza trascinarvi nei suoi labirinti di pensieri.
Prima ancora di imparare come diventare insegnanti di yoga, Kelly vi farà scoprire mille cose sullo yoga e su voi stessi accompagnadovi per mano in un percorso che inizia oggi ma che durerà per tutta la vostra vita. Se si vuole diventare insegnanti di yoga, perché non imparare ai piedi di un vulcano!
Insegnante fantastica, si percepisce sempre la sua ventennale esperienza. Lezioni sempre molto coinvolgenti, divertenti, mai monotone, adatte a tutti i livelli dai principianti agli avanzati. La migliore insegnante di Lugano!
Thanks to her precise knowledge and experience of body alignment, in every single class Kelly makes me explore the key principles anew or more deeply.
Her classes are a fun, challenging and enriching experience altogether. Since practicing with Kelly, I have safely mastered poses I never would have thought myself capable of before. Kelly inspires me to always take my asana practice a little further.
I am quite sensitive and at the same time demanding person, so when I was considering doing yoga, it took me a while to find a perfect teacher. Some (to my opinion) lacked the intensity of physical aspect, some were too spiritual for that phase of my life, some were too difficult for a beginner. Kelly Griswold provided everything I needed, without even knowing for sure what exactly I did need. Her talent of a sensitive and demanding person to put these traits into the practice, enfolded with love and acceptance and at the same time with a perfect amount of challenge. Kelly’s classes are full of sense on all levels, beauty and strength. I am sure her guidance makes yoga practice beneficial to anyone who is in search for quality, balance, and awareness.
She has a unique gift for teaching and working on energy movements. Mind, heart, and body, come together with spirit and passion. Every lesson under her guidance is a wonderful journey on yourself, the universe and a new solid level up on your skills. There is no one as good as her for yoga as she integrates knowledge of bodies, love and intuition. I’m so blessed to learn with her again and enjoy it thoroughly. Thx Kelly!
