All Levels with Music with Kelly Baker Josephs

Thursday, July 21 6-7:30pm

Kelly Cropped(1)

This 90-minute class will be a well-rounded mix of yoga yumminess. We will begin with a strong warm-up to prepare our bodies to deeply stretch and relax. We will then end with a short meditation. The class is open to students of all levels, though some previous yoga experience is recommended, and will be led with music.

Kelly’s teaching style reflects her interest in building physical and mental strength to meet life’s challenges. Her classes blend the strengthening and the restorative aspects of yoga, with modifications for beginners and options for regular practitioners. Her training includes 200 hour and 500-hour certifications from Yogaworks, as well as specialty trainings to work with students affected by trauma, cancer, and addiction. Kelly comes to Williamstown from Brooklyn, NY, where she teaches yoga and Caribbean literature.  Visit Kelly’s website.

Kim’s yoga practice over the past fifteen years has contributed significantly to her improved health, a greater sense of equanimity, and more appreciation for the blessings in her life. She has also enjoyed learning about anatomy and physiology and ways to use yoga therapeutically to reduce or eliminate physical pain.

Kim has her RYT-500 hour designation from the Yoga Alliance and is licensed with the Anusara School of Hatha Yoga. She is currently pursuing Anusara certification, the most advanced designation for Anusara teachers. She is thrilled to be sharing her love of yoga with her students at Tasha Yoga as a sub. Kim also teaches at Putney Moves, in Putney, Vermont, on a regular basis. As a teacher, she is warm, encouraging and welcoming. She is motivated by a desire to help her students use Anusara’s alignment principles to build strength, flexibility and balance and offers classes that are heart-opening and life-affirming.

Kim lives in South Newfane with her husband and their dog Manfred. Her daughters live in Vermont and Georgia, where they are in graduate school and college, respectively.
