Keely Totten, E-RYT 500, is a local LA-based yoga teacher and dedicated student who fell in love with yoga upon arrival! From the beginning, it provided an environment for healing and uncovering. Not long after, she discovered essential tools for spiritual development within the ancient teachings. A passion was ignited for practice and, eventually, teaching. Through a clear and practical approach, Keely specializes in guiding students on their own journey toward inner joy, freedom, self-healing and spiritual growth.
Keely has trained in Hatha Yoga, Tantra and Ayurveda. Her teaching style is inspired by alignment-based Hatha Yoga, Para Yoga, and the therapeutic approach of Structural Yoga Therapy. Her yogic studies began at Yoga Madre with her dear teacher, René Quenell. She was initiated into the Sri Vidya Tradition in 2014 and continues to study with her teacher, Yogarupa Rod Stryker, in the well-respected Para Yoga Master Training Program. Additionally, Keely currently studies Clinical Ayurvedic Medicine at the California College of Ayurveda and is a Reiki Master Practitioner. You can catch her weekly article, “The Joy of Yoga,” in the local paper, Mountain Views News.
When she’s not teaching or studying, you can find Keely enjoying a hike on the trail, traveling with her family, having good laughs with friends, and finding reasons to be grateful for the miracle of life.
Keely teaches Mixed Levels and Beginning classes. Keely also co-teaches Yoga Madre’s 200-hour Teacher Training.
