Peace of Time Wellness was formed to integrate holistic healing. It was founded on the understanding that the mind and body are more integrated than previously thought. Using research-based interventions, Peace of Time offers several service lines that can be used separately, or integrated according to the needs of the client. Integrated workshops are offered throughout the year which are used to educate as well as generate change with the understanding of the mind-body connection.
All of our services are trauma-informed and many of our modalities are centered around trauma-healing and stress management. Our approach is focused around the experience of life, learning about how we are impacted by events and being educated on options for change through education and self empowerment throughout the span of life.
Peace of Time also believes in social responsibility. As part of who we are, we offer education, advocacy, and community service throughout the year both supporting local organizations and residents of the community.

My name is Kelly and I will be teaching yoga at Peace of Time Wellness. While I have been practicing yoga to some degree for the past 8 years, I recommitted to a consistent practice almost three years ago. At that time, I fell in love with the gentle path that is yoga.
Coming from a background rich in teaching and communication, my goal is to present yoga in a way that is accessible to all people, no matter their background. I strive every class to create a safe environment in which yoga philosophy and asana practice is taught and students are encouraged to recognize that their journey into yoga is unique and personal.
Here at Peace of Time Wellness, I will be offering a Hatha yoga class and a Vinyasa flow yoga class. Hatha yoga is simply a term that describes any yoga program where yoga postures, or asanas, are taught. My Hatha yoga class will be a slow moving, introductory level class that will teach common yoga postures. Vinyasa yoga is a style of yoga that links breath to movement. You may break a sweat in this class. It is a flow based class, meaning we will move in and out of yoga postures as we inhale and exhale. This class is also an introductory level class, however it will move at a slightly faster pace than traditional Hatha yoga. I will be teaching breathing techniques, some yoga philosophy, and meditation in both Hatha and Vinyasa flow classes.
