Face Behind The Desk: Kelly Cross

What do you do when you're not the friendly face behind the desk?unnamed-5_copy1
When I'm not at Coolidge Corner Yoga's front desk, I work at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in their fundraising division. When I'm not there (or at the yoga studio) I'm usually reading, cooking, climbing, skiing, running, or volunteering with a couple of local organizations.

Where are you from and what brought you to Boston?
I am originally from Washington State. I came to Boston for school and attended Emerson College.

Fun fact about you?
I love to cook! It's meditative and nourishing to me, just like yoga.

Latest Yoga breakthrough?
I won't say this was recent, it is something I've learned (and keep learning) as I practice, and that's to be okay with not being at the place I might want or expect to be at--mentally and physically. It's a challenge, but yoga continues to teach me how to let go and just be wherever I'm at without judgement. Oh, also, conquering my fear of inversions!

Insiders tip?
Take a Forrest Yoga class!

What has been the most rewarding aspect of being behind the desk?
The people and the community here at CCY is incredibly wonderful and I enjoy being a part of it so very much.
