Kelly Arellano

Kelly Arellano originally came to yoga because of a low back injury and was told ‘yoga may help.’ She began her practice in Chicago, and when she relocated to LA she discovered that she’d found her passion. She began to pursue her goal to become a yoga teacher. After searching many studios and teachers throughout the Los Angeles yoga community she found her teacher, Rudy Mettia. (He played Van Morrison during savasana and she took it as a sign.) Jules Mitchell has also been instrumental in her education of restorative yoga, which has taught her how to protect the back injury which brought her to yoga in the first place…and ultimately take better care of her mind and body.

This 40-minute flow was designed with the athlete in mind. It hits all major parts of the body and touches on the all important cardio. H

Rudy often describes himself as “obsessed” with yoga and it is clearly evident in his teaching. Utilizing his experiences both on and off the mat, he inspires students to challenge their perceived boundaries while respecting their limitations. As he guides students within the class, he carefully breaks down each movement, finding myopic muscle and energetic actions to achieve the most.
