Kellie runs the Yoga at Soma-Kai. Monday and Wednesday evenings and Sat mornings. The Sat class uses weights as you do yoga so works on extra strength. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this session. Kellie and the group are so welcoming and relaxed. It is not a 'show pony' session. Will go back again.
