Meet Kelly

Kelly Mitchell is the owner of The BUDDHA Barn, Yoga & Wellness: a soulful place to transform the body, stimulate the mind and activate the soul. Kelly began her yoga journey fifteen years ago, as a way to begin the healing process after years of struggling with anxiety, negative body image and low self-esteem. It was the catalyst which led to countless workshops, therapy and retreats, which ultimately led to a career as a teacher. Her mission is to simply pay it forward , to create a haven for healing and to guide her students with love, every step of the way.

"I am a learning junkie. I'm addicted to activating my mind, honoring my body and healing my soul so that I can humbly and passionately spread that awareness to my students." -Kelly Mitchell
