Maddy Kelly

Maddy began her yoga journey back in 2018 as a junior at Michigan State University. After years of suffering from various mental health issues, she realized that yoga positively impacted her outlook on life. 

Maddy is currently getting her master’s of education in Community Development and Action at Vanderbilt University. She’s focusing on youth empowerment through mental health engagement and advocacy using mindfulness. The program’s goal is to combine interdisciplinary human development studies to create community changes. She’s hoping to use her knowledge of yoga within the program to develop an impactful difference in the lives of youth. 

When she stumbled across Small World Yoga, she realized how deeply it aligned with what she wanted to do and is looking forward to teaching yoga in the Nashville community. 

Her favorite quote is, “as we become more aligned with ourselves, we realize our purpose.”
