Keelin came to asana after a severe back injury that she had been nurturing since she was 12 years old. With an athletic-based background, she first struggled with the physical practice because of the limited range of her spine, and her tendency to move into that competition mindset. Little did she know, the practice would open her mind and body to a new kind of strength, focus, and love. Her passion grew as she continued to learn more about the anatomy of the postures, and this then grew into her study of the spiritual, breath, and mindfulness practices. Combining the physical and spiritual attributes of the journey is something she continues to work on, and bring to her personal practice and classes.
Keelin completed her E-RYT PYTT certification in 2014, and teaches various styles of yoga: Yin, Yinyasa, Power, Vinyasa, and Buti. She fell deeply in love with learning and teaching, and the practice has taken her around the world, from the midwest to Canada, Central America, Europe, and beyond.
Keelin is a student first and foremost, and hopes that in her classes the sense of community will create an environment where there is equal give and receive, learning and teaching, so that everyone leaves with a sense of joy, peace, and a desire to learn more. 🙂
