- Melbourne, Victoria, Australia
Kelly Davies first came to Yoga in 2002 after a trip to India where she discovered the books of BKS Iyengar. She found that practising Yoga gave her the stability that she needed in her life at that time, and helped her to deal with the ups and downs of everyday living.
Her journey deeper into Yoga led her to teach basic Yoga practices to the children at her son’s school, along with song, dance and art. Seeing how this opened up the quieter children, Kelly decided to train as a Yoga teacher and began her studies in the tradition of Krishnamacharya, the Grandfather of Modern Yoga.
Since completing her teacher training in 2004, Kelly has continued studying in India with the Desikachar family and at the Krishnamacharya Yoga Mandiram in Chennai. She has taught as a senior Teacher, Therapist and Teacher-Trainer in Melbourne for more than 10 years in Melbourne before joining with Scott to form Trikaya Yoga.
Kelly’s passion for Yoga, art and music continues to this day, as does her fondness of travel and adventure. She enjoys the continuing evolution of her practice and teaching in many directions, with a particular focus on the use of sound in mantra and chanting, and her ongoing exploration of the energetic systems of the body.
Kelly currently lives in Melbourne, Australia and runs Trikaya Yoga classes, workshops and teachers trainings there. She also runs retreats in Cambodia at Rainbow Lodge (www.rainbowlodgecambodia.com) with her partner, yoga and meditation teacher Scott Rennie.
Kelly is a Senior Registered Teacher with Yoga Australia.
