Why yoga?
Yoga has been one of the most effective practices to ground, balance, clear, and awaken me to the best version of myself. I come back to my mat over and over to feel lighter, brighter, and more connected. The trainings and intensives light up my soul and empower me in endless ways.

Who or what inspires you?
I am most inspired when I am creating and co-creating with others who are equally passionate about passing along the wisdom and teachings that lead to breakthroughs and awakening.

Three adjectives that describe you and your teaching style:
Flowing, spiritual, and empowering.

Where are you the most fearlessly authentic in your life?
On my yoga mat & in a ThetaHealing® session. These two practices have gifted me with tools to be authentic and fearless and clear the self-limiting bullsh*t. It’s a practice, a daily practice, that I bring into my life as a teacher, mentor, leader, wife, sister, and friend. Living and sharing the teachings requires me to be fearlessly authentic over and over again.

What is something not a lot of people know about you?
I spent 10 years working in the sports industry. I was a professional cheerleader for the San Jose Saber Cats during my junior and senior year of college then went on to work for the Sacramento River Cats in Corporate Sponsorship Sales & Marketing.

Why Yoga?
At this point, I truly can’t imagine my life without it. Yoga came into my life as a form of physical exercise, nothing more than a good sweat with the added benefit of gaining flexibility. Slowly, its teachings and way of life crept its way into my world and changed everything. Yoga has, and continues to, pull me out my lowest times, remind me of my own strength, deeply connect me to my body, and challenge me to grow in all areas of my life. My mat has become my safe space, a place I return to day after day to play, process and grow - physically, mentally and spiritually.


Who or what inspires you?
The women I’m currently surrounded with! I’m constantly in awe of, and inspired by, the connection of the tribe I’m surrounded by. Uplifting and supporting one another in a way I never dreamed of. Living and moving from the HEART.

 

Three adjectives that describe you and your teaching style…
Connected. playful. passionate.

 

Where are you the most fearlessly authentic in your life?
Is it silly if I say that right now it’s on my mat? On my mat I don’t play small. I’m not fearful of being judged. I explore what’s possible, play and experience. I take rest when I need it and I’m not afraid to cry. On my mat I show up exactly how I am in that moment. Yeah, on my mat - and that’s okay, I know it creeps into all other areas of my life.

 

What is something not a lot of people know about you?
I moved A LOT growing up. Every two years or so. I’ve lived all over the US, in Switzerland and in Australia. One day I’ll make it back to Australia!

Kelli Barnett

 
Why yoga?
I love living my life around a system of health. And yoga always has something for every phase of life. Athletic, contemplative, healing, creative. Whatever your interest, or ability, yoga has a branch growing in that direction. One can be introspective and calm or externally manifested. With study and the teachings all can be expressions of a healthy body and mind.
And It's fun to feel your life. It's fun to help other people feel their lives.
 

Who or what inspires you?
All aspects of the natural world when it is free and unfettered. I believe when we love the vivid blue of the sky or the white of snow we are loving ourselves and feeling the sensation of gratitude for our lives. Then I try to invite that feeling of space, and sensation of gratitude to the shapes and postures that are within my reach to teach.


Three adjectives that describe you and your teaching style:
Slightly unpredictable. Spontaneous. I don't know another adjective but I do know the phrase I've heard the most over the years is "I never know where I'm going in your class, but I like where I end up"

 

Where are you the most fearlessly authentic in your life?
When I've done my homework and I call sincerely to the "teachers' and then I just wait for the words and sequence to flow. In short- when I'm waiting and fully expecting the sparks of creativity to fly.


What is something not a lot of people know about you?
I really want to go to cheese making school.

 

Awaken to your seat. 
 
This class will take you on a journey to raise your vibration and discover your bliss. Offering a beautiful balance of doing and just being. You will journey through movement - sometimes self-led, sometimes guided - ending with a meditation that will leave you feeling balanced, connected, whole and awake.
