Yoga Teacher & Studio Coordinator
Drop who you’ve been told you are supposed to be; connect with your breath and gifts that are uniquely yours. Kelly received her 200hr teaching certificate from the Mystic Yoga Shala under the guidance of Jim Conlan and Detchen Zezulka.
She’s had the pleasure of teaching at several studios in CT but her home is here at Get Bent in Norwich as the Studio Coordinator. Kelly teaches 6 classes a week and has seen amazing/inspiring transformations in students.
As you spend more time on your mat, notice that you are open to try new things, eat healthier, opt to spend time in nature and surround yourself with positive people.
My current favorite pose is a handstand. Initially, I was afraid to leave the support of a wall. Now I do handstand all the time, anywhere I can. Sometimes I fall-out and other times stay up forever :)… Yoga is a “Practice” not perfect; there’s freedom in that. Please join me on your mat, Namaste
I hope you will join me for a class, and choose to embrace the bliss that comes from spending time on your mat!
Cara loved the Baptiste methodology because it was inclusive of every body type, and fitness level. She quickly fell in love with the practice and wanted to learn more.
Cara completed her Level one Training and obtained a teaching credential under Baron Baptiste in August 2019. She is now currently working on saving for Level Two.
“When I went to Level one Training, I had no expectations.” “I expected to learn the sequence and methodology on a deeper level.”
“My experience was so much different.” I now feel the series in my bones. And feel the reason behind each posture.”
“Baptiste has changed my life. And I teach this particular practice in hopes, to change others’ lives.”
Welcome Jennifer Lowney as the newest member of the Get Bent team! While she is new to the fitness world she has been serving Southeastern Connecticut in her Norwich and Colchester orthodontic practices since 1993.
Jennifer has been intrigued with exercise, nutrition and fitness for decades. She has been a avid runner, cyclist and swimmer culminating in completing the Timberman half iron man in 2007.
When she is not working or working out she is cheering on her four daughters in their activities: Her oldest daughter Cassidy played boy’s football at St. Bernard’s High School and her triplet daughters are graduating this year from Norwich Free Academy where they run cross country and pole vault!
Her current passion is teaching TRX (Total Resistance Exercise) but she is also currently enrolled in general fitness instruction so that she can help all students, not just TRX.
Working full time and being a mom is a lot of hard work. It doesn’t leave a lot of waking hours for self-care. She understands this first hand. Come to one of her classes and she promises that it will be time well spent. She looks forward to getting to know the community with the new lens of physical fitness! But don’t forget to wear your retainer!
