As a traveling yogi being able to understand our fellow humans from the intimate standpoint of where they come from and what they believe nurtures the soul, learning to respect and enjoy the traditions of other cultures keeps Kelle exploring the world around her. We were thrilled to get the opportunity to chat with such a wonderful woman. We hope you have as much fun learning about her as we did!
