KELSEY Cretekos: Yoga & Barre Instructor

My name is Kelsey, and I have been an active yogi for three years. I have been practicing for a total of five, but it wasn't until my third year that I began to understand the magic of yoga and put it into my daily routine. I am currently a student at D'Youville College and will be graduating with a BA in Health Service Management in the Spring.

This past year I moved back to Rochester, my home town, from living in Buffalo for six years. I am a 200 RYT through Breathe Yoga in Pittsford, a Baptiste affiliate school. I have also spent a weekend immersed with Bryan Kest, who is recognized as a creator of power yoga. I was a dancer (tap, jazz, ballet) for 13 years and have competed around various places on the East Coast. I am a Reiki Practitioner, Crystal Healer, and Hula Hoop Instructor. I also have experience teaching barre, Pilates, and spin classes.

It is my joy to bring Power Yoga to the community and help others learn the connection of linking breathing and movement, one breath at a time. I hold such dear love for yoga and plan on spreading it to whomever is open for interest. I like to keep my classes fun and focused. Through flowing, freedom, heat, and strength, these classes allow you release what is no longer serving you. Your 'stress' and 'worries', whatever may be, are no longer needed when your mind, body and spirit are in alignment. You will leave feeling surprisingly relaxed (after moving and sweating) and the rest of your day will glide along perfectly when you are n'sync with what is going on around you. "Energy flows, where attention goes."
