Erin Kelly @erinkellyart is a traveling yoga and movement teacher. When she is not leading clinics around the world. You can find her in the jungle of Costa Rica, at Flo Retreat Center, the home base of her School, Authentic Movements that was co-founded with Steph Gongora @casa_colibri. Where they regularly lead 200/300 Hr Yoga Teacher Trainings and cont. ed courses.
Erin is known for her personal grace and fluidity of movement in both practice and teaching, and can often be found upside down or cultivating creativity through unusual transitions. Her teaching style is refreshing and playful, while still incorporating precise cues and pose breakdowns to help students understand the movements of their bodies and the path to personal growth. In her teachings, she focuses more on the journey in between postures. She feels that an immense amount of strength and mental clarity can be built in what we commonly rush through.
She continues to develop a strong personal practice, studying various lineages, and consciously
chooses not be defined by a particular school or style. Currently, Erin is excited for this year, to attend Jules Mitchell’s advanced 300 Ytt, gaining her certificate in FRC- functional Range Conditioning and diving deeper in to her awareness of the human anatomy in attending Anatomy Trains Cadaver lab. Most recently she completed a 300 Ytt with Patrick Beach and Carling Harps. She also trained under Megan Currie, Ana Forrest and also spent many hours training with Tearson Bickmore from the Noah Maze School, as well as received extended hours in Dharma and Rocket under a Yancy Schwartz mentorship.
Erin has written for or been featured in Mantra Magazine, Yoga Guide Magazine and Yoga Journal, as
well as made many appearances on national and international media sources. She has online classes and continued education courses available on AuthenticMovements.com, Omstars founded by Kino MacGrego and AloMoves. These days, you can find her focusing her time on creating unique, informative, and stimulating classes, workshops, and trainings, often with her teaching partner Steph Gongora.
A true artist by nature, Erin received a BFA in Oil Painting with a minor in Art History and Psychology, from The Maryland Institute College of Art. She is passionate about the idea that if we open our bodies up physically, we can tap into all sorts of creative, emotional, and psychological breakthroughs. Whether
it’s with a paintbrush in hand or through body movement, Erin is continuously creating her own
form of art and expression and believes we all have this freedom of expression found in all creative languages.
