An exploration of movement with Kelly Jean Moore
Kelly Jean Moore:
Kelly Jean Moore has been teaching in Charleston for almost 16 years and Rolfing for 7. Her studio, Mission Yoga, is a destination for many of the city’s yoga teachers who come to study their craft. Kelly’s classes are modern, practical, and potent. She focuses on the therapeutic and mental aspects of yoga while always offering opportunities for dynamic growth through the body. Her system of yoga, Sarayana, is a synthesis of Hatha Yoga, Chinese Medicine, and Rolfing concepts that uncovers each practitioners inherent skill and wisdom.
Kate has been teaching in the wellness community for over a decade. She has taught many different modalities of movement, from group fitness, personal training and sup yoga, but the practice of yoga is where Kate feels must aligned with purpose. She combines this purpose with the powerful element of music to create an experience that transcends beyond the yoga mat. Kate believes the time spent on the mat exploring through self inquiry, mediation and movement brings us closer to our inner being, that beautiful voice that holds our truth. This truth brings a sense of self awareness into our daily lives and how we live in relationship with each other and the global community. Kate challenges her students to use the compass of yoga to navigate the waters of social justice, change, and the well being of all. Using the tools of yoga to be accountable for our actions and sit with discomfort and uncertainty in order to build deeper relationship and connection with ourselves and the world around us.
Kate began practicing asana in 2005 and her yogic path has continued to amaze and guide her since. Her first movement practice was as a ballet dancer where, from a young age she began to hone body awareness and proprioception. Kate (RYT-200) received her 200 hour YTT and Yin Yoga training at Mission Yoga in Charleston. Kate’s classes offer a tonic for modern western living through strengthening and stabilizing practices. Thoughtful sequencing with the intention of aligning body, mind and soul are central to her methodology.

We believe yoga is a vibrantly alive wisdom tradition and we utilize the ancient texts of yoga as well as modern psychology and exercise science to celebrate our part of that tradition.
Mission Yoga has always been an evolving conversation about what yoga is and where yoga is going. Our hand selected team of senior teachers are known for their distinct voices and their dedication to personal inquiry through meditation as well as movement. They are collaborative in their efforts to create a dynamic conversation between teachers and practitioners that doesn’t define yoga but explores it.
Movement, Meditation, Inquiry, Creativity, and Community are at the heart of Mission Yoga’s vision. We are proud to be considered a place of higher learning within the field of yoga among the teachers and students of Charleston.
Yoloha is here to help you build your physical skills, challenge you along the way, and achieve a greater sense of presence. Our classes are built for all levels, from beginner to advanced.
