Who we are
Francine Kelly, Yoga for Pelvic Health, Trauma Sensitive Yoga & Yoga for Anxiety-Depression
Francine is a yoga instructor at Swedish Covenant Hospital’s Galter Life Center. She is also a body-inclusive psychotherapist in the BodyMind Integration Program at the Center for Contextual Change in downtown Chicago.
Francine’s main area of focus is the therapeutic application of body/mind techniques to help individuals recover from the pervasive effects of trauma, anxiety and depression. To this end Francine has supplemented her MA in Community Counseling with additional training in body-centered psychotherapy including Somatic Experiencing and Sensorimotor Psychotherapy. She is also certified in Trauma-Sensitive Yoga, LifeForce® Yoga for Anxiety and Depression and in Leslie Howard’s Yoga for Pelvic Health. Francine’s goal is to support and empower her clients and students by providing tools that they can use to develop their own self-awareness, self-compassion, clarity, resilience, and peace. Through incorporating these skills, they can more skillfully manage their current life situations and make healthy and effective choices for the future.
