Kellee also co-owned Higher Ground Hot Yoga in Ogden and Layton, UT from 2009-2018 with partner Michael Larson and loved it.
A lifetime student whom is always exploring new dimensions to her yoga teaching and healing modalities of therapeutic body work and Reiki energy healing, Kellee also apprenticed in traditional Peruvian Shamanism, studying the medicinal teachings of plants for almost a decade. She attended the School of Alchemy in Paonia, Colorado to study the counseling style she practices called Anum Kara or Soul Friending. She draws out strengths and holds space for growth and transformation firmly but with compassion, humor, understanding, creativity, patience, and a faith in the power of the human spirit to transcend all obstacles. Her many mentees over the years are proof that the human spirit, when properly nourished and directed can accomplish anything in spite of challenging obstacles. Blending her shamanic background into her service in everything she does, her strengths are to support, teach, and hold space for people to transform into the best versions of themselves, on and off the mat. She has launched many great teachers and practitioners in the world this way! With keen intuition, she innately sees people without limits and has a knack for helping people extract the best of themselves.
