While in high school, Cally first attended a yoga class with her mother to compliment her rigorous workouts as part of the Pine Richland volleyball team. She could see the benefits of the practice and realized while she might not be playing volleyball forever, this was certainly something that could serve her long term. Cally maintained a regular practice through college and it was especially then, while healing from sports related injuries, that she realized this practice was indispensable to her overall health. When Stray Dog opened its doors, it was the perfect opportunity to pursue a teachers certification and share this practice with others. Cally received her certification with Dominique Ponko at Yoga Flow in Pittsburgh and with Jeanmarie Paolillo at YogaWorks NYC and continues to grow in her teaching and practice. She certainly appreciates that this practice allows you to be physical while also taking care of your body at the same time.
