Kellie Dearman is a certified Yoga Instructor (200+hour course) who has been practicing yoga for 18 years and began teaching in 2005. She initially took up yoga as a way to incorporate a form of exercise into her life that she would be able to stick to long-term. But soon yoga became much more than just a way to keep her body limber and strong. Kellie's practice is always deepening as she incorporates this comprehensive spiritual practice into all aspects of life. Yoga has helped her find a deep sense of inner peace that she can draw on at all times. 

Kellie loves teaching gentle hatha yoga and meditation at her home studio in Stirling, as well as for the City of Belleville. She also delivers private and small group mindfulness/trauma sensitive yoga practices for individuals dealing with PTSD and other stress-related conditions, with Trent View Conselling in Trenton.


Yoga Teacher Training

Trauma Sensitive YTT



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.


Kellie has 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.
