Episode 103// Meditation Foundations: Kumbhaka


Hello Sweet Beloveds,

I am so happy to be with you. This week was a whirl of wonderful work. You have all been in my heart.

This particular class is excerpted from my Meditation Foundations class that took place this very morning! We gather at 7am on Fridays at The People’s Yoga SE (drop-ins welcome! newbies super-welcome!). Join us if you are in town. We start with some simple movements to prepare for sitting, then we practice a short sit together. I hope this supports your practice in just the right way.

LOVE, Kelly

P.S. A shout-out to all of my social media pals! Arwen! XO Amber! XO Liz! XO Jessica! XO KIm! XO LOVE to all of you. Even if we haven’t written or spoken in a bit, you, yes, you are in my heart!


I have new offerings to share with you:

Fridays at 7am: Meditation Foundations (drop-in, class cards, memberships, all of it!) All are welcome. The People’s Yoga SE
Saturdays at 8:30am: Gentle Yoga. The People’s Yoga SE

Take Your Practice Deeper.

Individual learning and mentoring sessions are a wonderful way to begin or deepen your yoga practice.

I work with individuals and groups using a range of teaching modalities on topics like basic yoga alignment, therapeutic approaches to postures, anatomy, communication, conflict management, growing your business consciously as well as the deeper investigation of yogic texts and advanced practices like meditation, pranayama, bandhas and mudras.

  • New beginners can benefit from the complete attention of a skilled instructor when moving into postures for the first time.
  • Students with an established practice can use private yoga sessions to take their practice deeper: from alignment refinement to meditation to philosophy study.
  • Students working with physical or other challenges will find support in learning about working with their bodies, breath and minds in a supportive environment.
  • Students seeking major, transformative relaxation skills can create sessions dedicated to stress-relief and whole-person restoration.
  • Pregnant and postpartum women benefit from the experience of a longtime practitioner who practiced yoga during pregnancy, birthing and new mama transitions.
  • Moreover, private yoga lessons conform with the student’s schedule and unique pace of learning. Interested? Let’s work together. Learn more at
