Meet Your Neighbor – Kelsea Teel

Meet Your Neighbor - Kelsea Teel

The Guemes Ferry: The union of sea, boat, and passenger.
Flow Yoga: The union of breath, body, and mind.

As one of crew of the Guemes, Kelsea Teel is a familiar face to many who ride the Guemes Ferry. Beginning January 5, Kelsea will be providing 8 weeks of Flow Yoga. Classes are free of charge on Friday mornings at 10:00 at the Community Center Hall on Guemes Island.

After nine years of her own Yoga practice, Kelsea recently began instructor training through YogaFit. Part of the process is providing Yoga as a community service. This allows her the opportunity to connect her personal practice with the ability to share Yoga with others. YogaFit is designed to teach Yoga to everybody in EVERY BODY in a way that is safe and adaptable regardless of your age group, body type, fitness level or experience. This philosophy centers on letting go of judgment, competition, and expectations. YogaFit includes many aspects of practice including Flow Yoga, or Vinyasa. It is called "flow" because of the smooth way that the poses run together with each movement synchronized to a breath.

Kelsea says, "I am excited and truly grateful for the opportunity to extend the gift of Yoga to the Guemes community. Thank you for your patience and support through my process of instructor certification."
