In 2006 they moved to California together where she studied yoga and Holistic Health Education. In 2009 she received her Master’s degree, as well as certificates in Yoga, Pilates, Zumba, and Group Fitness.
Kelsy’s goal is to motivate and inspire people to live life to the fullest. She enjoys doing so through her fun movement and exercise classes.

However Kelsy’s experience of yoga was completely changed when she was introduced to Stand-Up Paddleboard in 2013 through her good friend Beth and SUP Cape May. She began teaching yoga on the Stand-Up Paddleboard for SUP Cape May in 2014 and it is her favorite class to teach. It is a not-to-be-missed experience!
