This class is taught by:

Kelsey Gillan

Kelsey Gillan has been practicing yoga since 2007. She is a graduate of James Madison University, where she studied Public Health which gave her the foundation to build a life dedicated to holistic living. As her practice rooted, Kelsey recognized an opportunity and desire to expand her health degree by teaching yoga. Kelsey studied under Eliza Whiteman and graduated from Fly Dog's 200 hr Teacher Training in February of 2015. Kelsey blends her health knowledge and personal experiences to develop yoga classes accessible for all levels. Kelsey teaches yin and vinyasa to the rhythm of music, with the use of props, gentle assists, and personal attention. She hopes to inspire her students' growth in their yoga journey, and to find courage that transpires off the mat.

Jessica Palmer

Jessica is a 200-hr RYT with Yoga Alliance. She completed her 200-hr training in Power Vinyasa Yoga with Flydog Yoga and Yin Yoga Teacher Training with Bernie Clark and Diana Batts with Semperviva Yoga in 2018. She has taught classes in hatha, vinyasa, yin, and children’s yoga since 2015. Jessica is also a full-time public school teacher with 15 years of experience at the elementary level.
The foundations of Jessica’s yoga practice are rooted in her passion and dedication to long distance running. She incorporates an expanded integration of body, spirit, and breath as she practices with the fellow pilgrims she meets on her yoga mat. Jessica guides her classes with an intention to tune into the core of our being and attention to the collective energy in the surrounding air. She leads a quiet and calm practice that invites you to awaken your heart, breathe, and be.

Kylie Hibshman

Kylie Hibshman shifted from an avid distance runner to a yoga devotee in 2016 after a triathlon injury. She quickly realized the immense mental and physical benefits of a regular practice and has not turned back. She completed her 200-Hour Vinyasa Teacher Training under the guidance of Eliza Whiteman and MaryAnn McIvor in 2017. In her classes, Kylie offers a variety of modifications to challenge students of all skill levels. She encourages her students to find balance, strength, breath and compassion both on and off their mats. Her vinyasa and yin classes incorporate music, low heat, moderate tempo and thematic structures to promote self-inquiry and joy.
A yin yoga practice sequences longer holds in quiet stillness with an intention to relax the muscles, opening the flow of energy through the deeper connective tissue, releasing broader range of motion in the joints of the body. Promoting a meditative awareness of breath and energy, this calm practice reveals acceptance within the present condition of the physical, emotional, and conscious layers of our being. This is an approachable class for beginners, athletes, and suitable for all backgrounds of yoga experience.
