Kelly Hogaboom, an RYT-200 yoga teacher from Aberdeen, Washington, in the gorgeous Pacific Northwest, got their start in yoga over two decades ago in a grubby little gym basement and they haven't looked back since! They completed their teacher training with Soma Yoga in 2022 and are registered through Yoga Alliance under their practice name of Little Switch Yoga. Kelly prioritizes mindful movement, unique stretch and strengthening asana, and a commitment to joyful practice. Their ethos is that we won't practice yoga unless we learn to love it. Rather than view yoga asana as a "workout" or a chore, Kelly thinks out of the box to find ways to fall in love with the practice!
My name is Kelly Hogaboom, and I’ve been practicing yoga since 2002 – over twenty years! My first class was in the basement of a gym in Port Townsend, Washington. I even remember my first Downward Dog! Throughout a career change, the birth and then unschooling of two children, a few moves, conversion to Buddhism then sobriety – yoga kept me company. I spent eleven months in a yoga program with Soma Yoga and received my 200 hour teaching certificate there in late 2022. I seek to help build or support a strong yoga community in the spaces where I teach. Whether you are here to get a workout, a “work in”, whether you want to feel better in your body and mind – or a little of all the above – I have something to share and delight in! My classes are usually sprinkled with a few giggles and will leave you with a deep sense of satisfaction of a job well done.
