About The Teacher

Kelli Ricco is the owner and operator of TODA VEDA. Kelli is originally from Philadelphia, PA where she played competitive soccer and graduated with a bachelors degree in Elementary Ed. After university, she owned a personal training business for 3 years. Kelli's desire to learn more about other cultures and expand her knowledge in fitness and nutrition then led her to Australia. There she led 60 person boot camps, ran after school training programs, created retreats, and much more. She was still passionately in search of the secrets of why people are living so long in some parts of the world so she could share these teachings to her clients. This drive for wellness is what led her to Costa Rica, studying the centenarians in the Blue Zone area. She worked 6 years at the Four Seasons Resort as the Fitness and Wellness Specialist where she developed class schedules, ran the exercise department, designed gym renovation plans, did goal setting and financial projections for the spa. Kelli is certified as a holistic health coach and specialized in personal training, spinning, yoga, and pilates. She is also taking multiple courses in alternative therapies like reiki, sound healing, aromatherapy, and reflexology.
