About The Teacher

Kelly has been fortunate enough to spend the last 13 years living in Playa Carrillo, Costa Rica. She began visiting Costa Rica in 2004 and fell in love with the culture, language, climate, kind hearted locals and the mystical beauty of Costa Rica. She met her husband, John Barrantes in Playa Carrillo the first year visiting and the two of them began Chillasana Yoga Surf while creating a beautiful family. Chillasana Yoga Surf was created with the intention to hold space and support others who need healing while experiencing the life changing, laid back rhythm of life Costa Rica offers.

With over a decade of yoga practice and teaching, Kelly views yoga as a journey of understanding the connection to your true Self within. Her teachings are focused on work with the breath (pranayama), the movement of the body (asana) and letting go of thoughts that do not serve your highest power. She encourages students to discover more about the deeper layers of the self to initiate change, growth and healing in ones life. Believing that yoga should be available to everyone, classes are designed for all levels and ages. In her classes you will laugh, play, breathe, explore, let-go and find that little light within! She loves to share with her students all that she has learned over the years and hopes that they can use their yoga in their lives on and off the mat. Kelly is forever grateful to all of her teachers and students who have helped her along her journey.
