Meet Your Yoga Teachers
Kelley is the studio owner and director of Evolve Yoga + Wellness. A yogi, mama of 3, and LEO wife living in Southern Maryland.
Yoga, movement, and breath connection have been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember. From growing up as a dancer, to strength training, to movement on my mat. The focus of presence and mindfulness has provided me with great stability and release.
Kelley holds a bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science and a Dance minor from Frostburg State University. In 2008 she received her 200-hour yoga certification with Sunstone Yoga in, and completed the 500-hour, Advanced Yoga Teacher Training, with Kim Manfredi and Charm City Yoga in 2013. As a E-RYT 500, Kelley is also a certified prenatal yoga and Barre teacher. She’s studied with the International Institute of Integrative Nutrition as a Holistic Health Practitioner and is a Certified Personal Trainer.
I truly believe yoga is for everybody. My goal is to make yoga accessible and fun but also provide a safe space to turn inward on your mat. Kelley felt called to share the immense impact that breath and movement can have on one’s mind, body, soul and spirit. It is her hope that every class provides students with an opportunity to enjoy moving their bodies, build physical strength and flexibility, relieve stress, and to bring a balance of whole health and well-being.
Melody Kleeman, founder of Aluma Yoga, is passionate about supporting others to heal, transform, and connect through her teaching of yoga, life coaching programs, and hosting both local and international retreats. Her classes and programs take you on a reflective journey that allow for healing, self-discovery, and joy to surface. She encourages students to ask, reflect, create and respect their mind-body-soul through their practice and self-discovery. As a former ballet student, her sequencing is smart and integrated with a heavy influence of graceful lines and rhythmic movements.
After leaving her career in 2012 as a special education teacher to study yoga in Costa Rica, Melody became certified as an instructor at the 200 hour level and began teaching full-time. Her extensive experience includes private and corporate instruction, teacher training, advanced instructor coaching, leading workshops and international yoga retreats. Melody is also a life coach and offers one-one and group coaching programs both in person and on-line. She lives in Cockeysville with her husband Brian, Bella the Boston, Angel the Pitbull and sometimes two step-daughters.
