NEWS FROM OUR YOGA COMMUNITY                               November 2012                 



Hopefully this email finds you with the attitude of gratitude! Personally, I find myself the most grateful for the very thing that is the most challenging in my life, which is my 4 year old, Boone. At times I am able to stay centered and calm and then at times I lose it completely! The space in between the calm and losing it is where I enjoy the sweetness of just being grateful for what is and it's offerings. I find this is similar to practice... it is usually the hardest postures that offer the most profound lessons, giving me the opportunity to grow as a person and to gradually shift suffering into joy.

I invite all of you to practice letting go of your judgements and attachments to what is 'right', 'wrong', 'could be', 'should be', both on and off your yoga mat. May you also find contentment in simply being and develop an attitude of gratitude in the most challenging obstacles and joyful celebrations alike.  


"Not what we have but what we enjoy, constitutes our abundance."    -Epicurus

 Kellee Bio photo

Hi, I am Kellee Morris and I am (one of) your yoga teacher (s) here at Bikram Yoga Sandy! I graduated from Bikram Teacher Training in the Fall of 2000 with Jackie, and can truly say, these years as a Bikram Instructor have been the best of my life. Life truly began with Bikram Yoga as, for me, the world unfolded clearly only after I accepted this yoga to be the pivotal foundation of my enduring lifestyle. I have taught all over the country, without interruption since I graduated and can honestly say, I have never taught a class I didn't love teaching!

Bikram Yoga has helped me overcome crippling fibromyalgia, depression and opened my life to the myriad possibilities of potential in overcoming circumstances, history, emotional issues and learning that when I can focus one spot on myself in the mirror, keep my mind inside my brain for 10 seconds, that I am capable of creating things I never dreamed of! Today I revel in the development of who I have become because of how this yoga showed me my own life path.

I love Bikram yoga with my whole heart. I didn't like it when I started it, it hurt, but I invested in the pain in order to overcome the tremendous suffering which had become a part of life which I liked even less. Today, middle aged, and happier than I could have ever imagined, I am a huge advocate of Bikram Yoga. I teach it with sensitivity to the individual.

My speciality is enthusiasm and positive energy with a focus on precise alignment and subtle adjustments within the postures to keep your body free from misalignment. I adore sacred geometry exhibited as we practice the postures.

As a senior teacher who has stayed close to Bikram and HQ, I am constantly learning and growing in my teaching.  I am always happy to listen and answer questions, always sincerely interested in the well being of my students and I look forward to embarking on this journey of your yogic unfolding with you. Namaste
