Kelly Novak embraces yoga with enthusiasm and love. In February 2008, she found herself in a yoga class as a last resort for stress relief, unsure of what to expect. That morning, and in the months to come, she found more than she ever expected – a development of mental and physical strengths and uplifting spiritual awareness. As a non-athlete, she felt relieved to find a way to step into her body in a fun, accepting environment. Kelly cultivated her nonphysical yoga practice as a way to deepen her mind and heart - and to laugh and be light! As her yoga practice continued – on and off the mat - she found courage and confidence and never looked back. Her vinyasa classes focus on a well-rounded physical practice with the incorporation of thoughtful concepts ranging from the contemplative to the humorous. She loves to laugh and brings that energy into her classes. She believes that how we navigate our yoga practice parallels our lives – finding strength, flexibility and balance. Kelly completed yoga teacher training at Inner Bliss Yoga Studio in Rocky River, Ohio, under the instruction of Mitchel Bleier and Tammy Lyons, and has been fortunate enough to learn directly from many talented practitioners. Her favorite teachers are her students, who truly teach her everything.
