About

About

I’m Kelly McConnell creator of Fit and Mindful. I love working with both adults and children. My intention is to guide people to see their own inner strengths by teaching the practice of body and breath awareness. I’m not only a dedicated yogi, I’m an endurance runner, skier and triathlete which attracts me to the athletic community. I’ve found that sports are an amazing vehicle to learn how to connect with yourself and the world around us on a deeper level. When you move your energy efficiently and stay in the present moment you will create space to see life more clearly. Although I focus on athletes, I love working with everyone and believe we are all athletes at our own level. Fit and Mindful programs aim to harness a person’s full potential by offering sessions that provide healing tools to help balance body, mind and spirit. When our lives and bodies are in balance, the energy we give out naturally flows back in. Massage therapy, yoga, mindfulness and movement with proper alignment have been the keys to my own sustained athletic ability and stability. The combination of these practices create a calm mind, will aid in preventing injury, while also sustaining the athlete’s body for their sport and life.
