About Kelly Jean Moore
Teaching yoga for over a decade, Kelly first became a student of Taoist and Zen Zen philosophies in the mid 90’s as a teenager seeking a way to better navigate the challenges of a difficult home-life. While studying theater and art history in college she began exploring the psychology of movement and the nature of the mind. Stumbling upon modern postural yoga in the early 2000’s she found all of her interests converging and began a lifelong dedication to the practice and teaching of yoga..
Kelly intuitively weaves elements of Yin, Vinyasa, Hatha, and experimental movement into a seamless exploration of humanness. She is an inspired storyteller known for her humor and patient commitment to students. In 2011 she became a certified Rolfer(tm). The experience of becoming a Rolfer and then working one on one with clients helped to expand the lens through which she looked when creating Sarayana. Not a style of movement, Sarayana is more of a method of seeing and contextualizing the varied elements of healing and awakening in our lives. She has trained teachers at the 200 hour level since 2008. Her studio Mission Yoga launched in 2013 and she can be found teaching on the weekly schedule and leading trainings regularly. She lives in Charleston with her son who continues to offer her the most challenging and gratifying yoga that she has had the pleasure to practice.
