Kelly Shay

Kelly Shay discovered an authentic practice where movement and breath connected with spirit in 2002 when in college studying family social science, youth studies, theater, and music production. Yoga combined elements of her Native American spiritual upbringing and her athletic prowess of dance and gymnastics. From the Great Plains to western Africa and the Caribbean to over a decade of service throughout her Twin Cities community, she has been focusing on enriching the lives of others through environmental sustainability, youth and family work, community engagement, artistic expression, and mind/body wellness.

Kelly began teaching yoga in 2013 after giving birth to her second daughter. A proud mama warrior, she has been leading yoga classes for pregnant women, mamas + babies, children of all ages, families, and adults ever since. Through work in schools, community centers, farms, and yoga studios she blends breathwork and meditation with chanting, music, and fluid movement in a compassionate and healing way. Also known as DJ Enigma, Kelly creates uplighting soul-filled music for family events, yoga gatherings, restaurants, and clubs.

When not teaching or being entranced by music she can be found strengthening her personal yoga practice, plotting how to raise three strong women in today’s society, developing curriculums, taking any opportunity to get out of the city and connect with nature, and striving to surrender to all this lifetime has to teach.
