Kelly thanks Mother Nature as one of her main guides. She is eternally grateful to practice, travel, learn, and share.
Kelly has been an incredible resource for me in maintaining my physical integrity through two pregnancies with children born 17 months apart. I was especially grateful for her help to keep my second child in an ideal position to have an unmedicated birth, and he was over 9 pounds. Kelly has worked with me postnatally for two years and counting, and helped me put my body back together stronger and healthier. My pelvic floor, core and posture have all improved thanks to our work together.

It has been my extraordinarily good fortune to have crossed paths with Kelly Haas. She has enriched my life on myriad levels. More than four years ago I was seeking a body-work teacher/therapist to help stabilize my hip before total hip replacement surgery and to support postoperative healing. I found Kelly through word-of-mouth recommendations and I have been working with her several times a week ever since. My body has profoundly changed over this time. I am stronger, more supple, and my balance and stamina have dramatically improved. BTW, I’m 62 – my goal is to be strong, supple, and stable at 70! Thanks to Kelly, I’m pretty sure I’m good for it!!!

I have chronic middle-aged back pain, and my doctors told me I’d only get relief if I let them fuse three of the compressed vertebrae in my neck. Determined to avoid surgery, I asked for Kelly’s help. She taught me how to stand, stretch and breathe in ways that alleviated pain, restored mobility and redirected the energy in my body. It was a revelation. Kelly’s knowledge of body mechanics, breathwork and multiple traditions of yoga is awesome, but the real key to her success is her humility and her genuine interest in applying what she knows to helping people.
