Every week, Kelsey Koch (’16) teaches up to 15 yoga classes at her studio in Grand Blanc. In each class, she is working with and communicating with a varied clientele. This includes a weekly class she teaches free to amputees.
In each situation, Koch said, she utilizes the public speaking skills she learned at UM-Flint in the Communication Studies program at the university.
Koch finished her 200-hour yoga teacher training the same month she graduated from UM-Flint. Less than a year later, she decided to open her own studio. She teaches a range of yoga classes, and decided to add the free session for amputees as a source of support.
