In 1998 Kali added power yoga into her fitness routine to increase her flexibility, and started exploring meditation to offset the stress of her high-tech corporate job. It wasn’t until many years later–after several significant challenges and deep internal work–that she started to see more clearly what it meant to be healthy.

In 2012 Kali took the full leap into mind-body wellness, forming A Journey Into Health. In addition to becoming a 200-hour certified yoga instructor, she found energy healing and holistic nutrition: she’s also an Usui Reiki Master and an Eating Psychology Coach. At the end of 2015, Kali will also be an advanced, 500-hour certified instructor with specialized focus in therapeutic yoga.

Kali provides her students with a well-rounded yoga practice—one that incorporates physical postures and movements, various breathing techniques, and do-able meditations. Her group classes are relaxing, energizing, and fun.

In classes and in one-on-one sessions, Kali enjoys working with beginners (especially people who don’t think they can “do yoga”), and with people who have physical, mental, or emotional limitations.

She specializes in:

  • stress management
  • chronic pain (e.g. neck/shoulders, lower back, auto-immune conditions)
  • anxiety/depression
  • trauma/PTSD
  • body image / concerns related to eating and food

That said, she is open to working with anyone!

She has lived an Ayurvedic lifestyle for over 10 years as well, so she enjoys sharing simple tips from this holistic system of healing with her clients. Her workshops (including “Introduction to Ayurveda” and “Yoga for Emotional Eating”) are informative, interactive, and inspiring.

Kali believes each person is unique and ever-changing, so there’s no one-size-fits-all solution to health issues or goals. While keeping things lighthearted, safe, and welcoming, she encourages folks to slow down, be curious, and explore life’s challenges as gifts.
