Retreat Leaders

2013.10 Italy-585

My wonderful friend, Deborah Kelly died Dec. 16, 2014.  She was a brilliant light in my life and the instigator of our yoga adventures.  I am continuing her legacy of fun, travel, healing and yoga in her honor and with her memory firmly held in each offering.  She’s with us in spirit and what a spirit she brought to everyone who’s life she touched.

Long time friends, Karen Quinn and Deborah Kelly began collaborating to create amazing travel yoga experiences over 11 years ago.   They blend their unique talents to create an atmosphere of adventure, exploration and fun!  With their diverse talents and common passion for yoga, they create a vacation that is very different than many yoga retreats.  They bring attention to the broader path of yoga, going beyond asana to incorporate  practices which deepen the spirit, strengthen the character and open the heart

Karen Quinn, Ayurvedic Practioner, CYT, ERYT, is passionate about using the ancient tools offered in yoga and Ayurveda to bring health and balance into our modern lives.  A yoga therapist since 2002, Karen works with people at all levels of imbalance to find freedom from illness through yoga movement, breath and ayurvedic diet and lifestyle.

Deborah Kelly, MFT, RYT teaches yoga, meditation, Yoga Meets Dance™ and workshops at the Yoga Center of Carmel  and has taught adapted yoga classes at several local chemical dependency treatment centers.  She has a private psychotherapy practice in Monterey where she sees clients with a wide range of issues and leads a group for individuals with imbalanced eating.
