Corporate Executive & Athlete Turned Yogi and Agent of Change
Kerri Kelly is a force of nature. In every move she makes, action strikes. She is a skilled yoga teacher, motivating students to effect change in their lives. She’s a fierce coach, who’s ability to turn ideas into purpose and action is a gift. And she plays big, straddling the mindfulness and political worlds, so that the social change makers—the visionaries—she works with can mobilize and organize effectively.
Kerri was on the fast track in the marketing world until 9/11 hit, when she lost her stepdad, a NYC fireman. That was the wake up call that got Kerri off the “should” path. And yoga was the tool that helped her define who she wanted to be. From that point she knew that yoga could serve as a radical catalyst of change not only for herself but for others.
Kerri is recognized across communities for her inspired work to bridge transformational practice with social change and politics. She’s been instrumental in translating the tools of yoga and mindfulness into practical application and social action in the public sector, working in collaboration with community organizers, spiritual leaders and policy makers. She is a commitment to personal transformation that leads to powerful social change.
