"Please know that today of all days, you are included, and you belong." - Jeffery Marsh
A longtime yoga student and licensed massage therapist, Kelly Marshall embarked on their RYT-200 training with Black Swan Yoga back in 2012, expecting nothing more than a fitter yoga body and an improved ability to rock a sick handstand. However, spending 8 hours a day of daily study and yoga asana practice in front of a mirror took its toll on their delusions of self-concept. Through yoga, Kelly Marshall (then female-identified) realized that she was in fact, non-binary and transgender.
With this first-hand experience of the therapeutic powers of yoga and their extensive anatomical training, they continued their studies by enrolling in the IYT Yoga Therapist training at Kripalu, delving into the myriad tools, techniques, and philosophies of yoga as medicine. They received their C-IAYT certification for this 1000 hour training in 2016.
With Spectrum Yoga Therapy + Massage, they offer corporate education, mindfulness coaching, individual and group yoga instruction and Yoga Therapy, Reiki, massage and bodywork.
They specialize in creating a safe space of healing and empowerment for individuals in the LGBTQ+ population, and those whom are addressing trauma, anxiety/depression, body and gender issues, and more.
