Featured Tranquilista: Born and raised in the Heartland, Kelly grew up an Indiana Hoosier with a love for all things sports, travel, and school.  The thrill of adventure and lure of new cultures soon led Kelly away from her Midwestern roots to soak up the sun and Southern hospitality of the South Carolina Low Country.  It was there, while competing as an athlete at the College of Charleston that her drive for peak physical performance led to injury and she first found herself on a yoga mat.  Admittedly, at first, yoga was simply a way to ease and loosen her overworked and burned out muscles.  However, soon she was overtaken by the stillness awakened in her mind and the spiritual connection encountered by her heart, which ultimately hooked her for life. 

Since those early years Kelly has kept her passion for the practice as a focal point in her life, allowing it to shape the very essence of who she is, what she loves, and how she gives back to her community.  Her continued deep devotion and belief in the transformational power yoga provides, eventually led Kelly to receive her 500 hour RYT from Tranquil Space in Washington, DC, the home of all things goddess and glitter.  She then went onto open her own yoga studio, Om On Yoga, in Richmond, VA.  Through this venture, Kelly is deeply honored to share her experience and provide a nurturing space that offers a warm and inviting community to those who yearn for the beauty of yoga in their lives. 

When she’s not on her mat, an orchid colored Jade to be exact, Kelly can be found globetrotting to far off and sometimes exotic but mostly laid back destinations, burrowing deep in a good book, relishing in the quiet solace of the outdoors, or savoring the pure goodness of a great acoustic guitarist.  Richmond, Virginia is where Kelly calls home.  She lives there with her incredible husband, and fellow yogi, Ken, and her sassy Schnauzer, Miss Gracie Mae.
