Kelly Stern’s passion for movement and stretching began at an early age. With a background in gymnastics, Kelly continued to practice body oriented activities such as dance and other performing arts, until she fell in love with yoga. As a high school student, Kelly began practicing many different styles of physical yoga, including Hatha, Bikram, Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Jivamukti, Anusara, Kundalini, and Sivananda. She knew right away that she wanted to share this passion with others. After completing over 1000hrs of teacher trainings in Bali and Hawaii, Kelly continued to travel, teaching and assisting teacher trainings mostly in Hawaii, Oregon, Florida, Costa Rica, and Bali. Kelly has studied with amazing teachers from all over the world from many different lineages. She feels blessed to have come across something in her life that she feels so passionate about and loves sharing it with others. With a love for meditation, Kelly considers herself a student of life, learning and deepening her experience in each moment.
Currently living in Waimanalo, HI, Kelly is the co-founder of Yogarden Hawaii, a business that was birthed though the foundational trinity of yoga, music and sustainable farming practices and education.
