My name is Kellie Dearman. I’m a certified Yoga Instructor (200+hour) practicing for 23 years. I began teaching in 2005 and currently teach about 15 sessions a week. Although I initially took up yoga as a way to incorporate a form of exercise into my life that I would be able to stick to long-term, yoga soon became much more than just a way to keep my body limber and strong. My practice is always deepening as I continue to incorporate this comprehensive spiritual practice into all aspects of life. Yoga has enabled me to find a deep sense of spiritual connection and inner peace that I can draw on at all times.

I love teaching gentle hatha yoga, yin and chair yoga, and meditation at my home studio in Stirling. I also take private clients for mindfulness/trauma sensitive yoga practices for individuals dealing with PTSD and other stress-related conditions, specializing in anxiety, trauma and mobility issues.

Yoga Teacher Training


200+ yoga teacher training was with Glenn Mifsud of Stillpoint Yoga (now retired) and Dr. Gerry Lin. This intensive training took place over a one-year period, and followed closely in the Sivananda style and tradition.


Completed two 30-hour workshops. The first was Trauma-Informed Yoga with Caroline Owen of Wavelengths Yoga, and Sarah Schlote of The Refuge. The second was Trauma Sensitive Yoga Teacher Training with Brendon Abram and Dr. Bob King.
