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, meditation, and Sanskrit. I have also studied under Kausthub Desikachar, Lilias Folan, Gary Kraftsow, and Mukunda Stiles. 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. I studied Yoga Therapy with Gary Kraftsow, and Ayurvedic yoga therapy with Mukunda 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, Sri Swami Satchidananda, and John Friend.

Peaceful be heaven, peaceful the earth, peaceful the broad space between. Peaceful for us be the running waters, peaceful the plants and herbs! Peaceful to us be the signs of the future, peaceful what is done and undone, peaceful to us be what is and what will be. May all to us be gracious!
