A special training for yoga teachers and other wellness professionals:

Bridging Personal Practice and Collective Change:

Teaching (and Practicing) Transformational Yoga with Kerri Kelly

#resistThe personal is always political. There is never an instance where we are separate from everyone and everything around us. Our lives are interwoven, and so our practice must allow for the interplay between who we are as individuals and who we are as a collective; between personal healing and transformation (inner work) and collective well-being for all (outer work).

This training is designed for leaders on the front lines of transformational work, including yoga teachers, community leaders, organizers, and facilitators, who are ready to take their work to the next level. It is an immersive experience demanding radical healing and truth telling, calling each of us to reach our highest human potential as catalysts for real, long-term change.

Transformational Yoga is an opportunity to share with others the potential to heal, uplift and empower.

This training is for yoga teachers and anyone interested in change.

Using a whole-systems approach, Kerri Kelly covers the following core components:

  • Teaching: The art of designing a transformational yoga class that bridges the personal and the political
  • Facilitating: Building skills to hold space and cultivate courageous conversation about issues of social justice and liberationteaching transformational yoga
  • Speaking: Finding your voice, connecting the dots, and telling your story
  • Expanding: How to decentralize the conversation, spread seeds, and ignite the movement.

This course will offer instructing and practice experience in both Vinyasa Flow and Kundalini Yoga. It’s open to all levels of yoga practioners and anyone in educational, healing or wellness fields who would like to incorporate theories and practice of tranformation into your life.

About Kerri Kelly

Kerri KellyKerri is the founder of CTZNWELL, an emerging movement to mobilize people into a powerful force for wellbeing for all. She spent seven years as Executive Director of the non-profit Off the Mat, Into the World and is currently board chair. She is relentless in her commitment to elevating leaders, groups and projects to next-level social change makers through her work with The Catalyst Collective, an innovative consultancy designed for mission-based individuals, groups, and organizations that want to be successful and make a difference in the world.

Kerri Kelly is a force of nature. She is a skilled yoga teacher, motivating students to effect change in their lives. She’s a fierce coach, whose yoga for social changeability 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 into purpose. To her surprise, yoga was the most powerful source of healing and transformation during that time. She took the leap and has been on a crusade ever since to elevate wellbeing and help others discover their greatest potential.

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 wellbeing 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.
