Kelly Gilmore is a dedicated, seasoned, down-to-earth yoga teacher and body worker with a background in holistic, mindful living.
Her classes are inspired from her various trainings through out the last 17 years of being on the amazing path of yoga and 27 years of adoring nature. She began teaching in 2001 after becoming certified in Flow Yoga with White Lotus Foundation and continued on their advanced teacher training the following year. Anusara attracted her shortly after and she completed a 300 hour teacher training which led to several hundred hours of therapeutics and an appreciation for alignment. With the fascination of the body and it’s physiology, Kelly became a LMBT in 2006. In 2013, she completed a 500 hour training with Subtle Yoga and became a Yoga Therapist. In 2016, she received certification in Yin Yoga and Aromatherapy.
Kelly’s classes are skillfully taught, offering empowering alignment and dynamic sequencing to make for a fun, challenging class to create strength, balance, and harmony while encouraging students to play and honor their edges, breathe deeply, allow self inquiry and recognize the one breath that connects us all.
She currently teaches weekly classes, workshops, and is a core teacher for the teacher trainings at Asheville Community Yoga. Private sessions are available for beginners looking to safely start yoga or for anyone who wishes to deepen their practice.
