Home What Is Yoga Bio Yoga I Teach Classes Yoga Etiquette
My name is Emily Kelly and I am the owner and operator of Appomattox Yoga in Hopewell Virginia. I was certified at Integral Yoga in Buckingham County Virginia under Sri Swami Satchidananda. I lived on the ashram for one month studying anatomy, the science of sound, the science of breathing, asanas, or poses, diet, and Sanskrit. I have also studied under Kausthub Desikachar, Lilias Folan, and Gary Kraftsow. I hold certificates from each.

I am trained as a Yoga therapist (a sort of personal trainer) and to teach yoga for arthritis from Integral Yoga and from Kausthub Desikachar. I have certifications in yoga for depression, grief and anxiety as well. Under Lilias Folan, I studied yoga for the decades or "The Joy is the Journey," which is yoga for your 20's, 30's etc. and up to the age of 85.

In August 2003, I began my studies with Gary Kraftsow.

In July 2008, I obtained my Ayurvedic Yoga Therapy Certification under Mukunda Stiles. I will be pursuing certification as a Structural Yoga Therapist with Mr. Stiles.

I continue to further my education on a weekly basis by attending classes, workshops, seminars and additional training. Currently, I continue to study under a Yoga therapist as well as a Viniyoga teacher. Both of whom have studied under T. V. K. Desikachar, author of "The Heart of Yoga," Gary Kraftsow, Mukunda Stiles, and John Friend.
