After vacationing on 30a and along the panhandle for years, Kelli felt as though something was missing…. A YOGA scene! So in 2006 Kelli opened Balance Health Studio with the intention of offering YOGA and also providing a place where health and fitness could become a lifestyle.
With her 20 years of experience working in the health and fitness industry, as a personal trainer, certified Spinning instructor, U.S. Olympic athlete (1996 Field Hockey) and YOGA instructor, she decided to begin offering a full array of fitness options at Balance to help make health and fitness part of everyones daily lifestyle. Options include: Spinning, core fitness, bootcamps, and personal training.
As part of her vision of growing the yoga community on 30a, she also created one of the panhandles only Yoga Teacher Training programs. Yoga is more than just a physical practice for Kelli; she translates yoga philosophy into a lifestyle, with a special emphasis on daily gratitude. Since establishing Balance as an official teaching school (Yoga Alliance certified), Kelli has been able to expand her teachings and help develop amazing new Yoga teachers for the 30a area and beyond.
When you attend one of Kelli’s Vinyasa Yoga classes, you can be sure that you will sweat, stretch, and strengthen your body, while having fun moving and grooving to some funky music. She also empowers fitness students at Balance in her high energy Spinning and Core Fitness classes.
Kelli is available for private yoga sessions and personal training or group training.

“Norm-dog” … possibly the best known dog on 30a. If you have ever been to Balance, you have probably stepped over him, petted him, or been slobbered on by him. Norman is a beloved friend, peaceful and proud by nature.
When Norman is not greeting people as they leave a Yoga class, he can often be found in the back helping Dr. Bart to make people feel better.
Norman has been by Dr. Bart’s side, assisting in the healing process, for over 11yrs. In addition to his chiropractic assisting, Norm is a comedian, an inspirational meditator, and a gifted listener. Sometimes he is there to just help you laugh. Other times to help you remember to slow down and enjoy the little things and the special moments in life. He deeply appreciates all the love, attention, back rubs, and most of all the treats he gets from you all.
