"It's important to be willing to fail and not beat yourself up too much about it. Remember that failure is a learning opportunity and a stepping stone towards success."

Kalisse Kelly is the founder of Kalisse Kelly Yoga (KKY), a yoga studio that provides alternative medicine and therapeutic wellness experiences to individuals, groups and corporate entities. She discovered her passion for yoga while practising the art and became increasingly interested in its mental and physical benefits. In 2018, she completed her Yoga Angels 200 YTT teacher training certification while working in a top-level management position in the food industry.

After completing the course, Kalisse offered yoga classes as a side hustle while pursuing a management career in the food industry. Eventually, she decided to shift her focus entirely to yoga and founded KKY, which offers diverse online and in-studio options, and leverages mobile and web technology to deliver an intuitive, automated customer experience.

For Kalisse, yoga is more than just a physical practice: she believes it creates a space in which people can connect with each other. This fosters a sense of belonging and support, which can have a positive impact on mental health and well-being, especially in a country like Jamaica.

While yoga has become increasingly commercialised in recent years, with a focus on external achievements such as weight loss and physical posture, Kalisse's approach to yoga still honors the traditional spiritual roots that emphasises non-attachment to material possessions but with a emphasis for providing yoga for the modern world. Nonetheless, she remains committed to sharing the mental and physical benefits of yoga with her clients and building a community of wellness through KKY.
