About Katy Kelnhofer

Katy is a Chicago-based yoga instructor, having completed her 200 hour yoga teacher training at Yoga Now Chicago. A once avid runner, it was through an injury that she was forced to scale back and integrate more “yin” to her “yang.” She discovered her passion for yoga after completing 100 straight days of yoga –just for a personal challenge. Initially attracted to the physical practice, she quickly realized how much the meditative and spiritual elements of yoga were positively influencing her life. Katy found yoga to be a powerful connection between the mind, body and spirit. Influenced and inspired by many well-known Chicago instructors, Katy’s classes are multi-level, creative, energizing and welcoming with music that connects with the experience.  She genuinely loves working with students of all levels and hopes to help them find the joy, connection and dedication through their practice as she has found.

She aspires to bring everyday life to yoga and yoga to everyday life.

"Yoga is a way of moving into stillness in order to experience the truth of who you are. The practice of yoga is the practice of meditation-or inner listening-in the poses and meditations, as well as all day long. It's a matter of listening inwardly for guidance all the time, and then daring enough and trusting enough to do as you are prompted to do...." ~Erich Schiffmann
