*Yoga Class for Michael Franti @ Thompson’s Point // Summer 2017
The only way I can explain Kelly in one word is: Goddess. She is a woman of great beauty, grace, love and LIGHT. She is just as invested in my spiritual evolution as I am.
The intuitive reading experience was more incredible than I had imagined. She is a true gift. I cherish our session together and I can’t wait for my next session.

My mentorship with Kelly has been everything I hoped for and more. I am so grateful towards Kelly for helping me tap into my heart and intuition. I am grateful for her ability to see me, to believe in me. She is such a powerful, beautiful soul.
I had an incredible Reiki experience and reading with Kelly, it was powerful and moving. I can’t get over the feeling of an angel touching my belly, that was so, so special. Kelly is very gifted and generous for sharing her gifts with us.

Kelly is extremely professional and caring. She cleared an apartment building and my personal residence for me. Both buildings are very old and I could feel the baggage in both. Kelly patiently and lovingly worked her way through each building, clearing away the past and providing the opportunity for something new to be created. The biggest difference I noticed is that things that seemed stuck for years finally were released and this has allowed me to move forward on each property.
The intuitive mentorship was truly a beautiful experience. Kelly had a beautiful way of empowering me to connect with my intuition and provided me with quite a few tools I now use on a daily basis. I have a clearer view on what it means to be in alignment and what is no longer serving me. She has opened the gates for me to honor my gifts and share them with the world.

Kelly is a gem for anyone interested in holistic healing. Her calming nature makes you feel relaxed and at peace. She pays close attention to your needs and guides you through a mindful experience. Personally, I’ve found new meaning in caring for my physical and spiritual health. I would encourage you to meet with Kelly for a unique experience through Ayurveda and join her in restorative yoga workshops. I was given individualized care and support which allowed me to feel more at ease in my life. Kelly will be your lasting aid to stress!
Kelly has been a guiding light for myself since I found out about Bug Light Yoga in 2017. I was stressed out in every aspect of my life and the best place for self-care was and continues to be, her classes. Kelly’s guiding voice throughout the practice always strikes a cord and I always leave feeling more centered and its like I know myself better. I am grateful to Kelly for being an inspiration and a healer for the community. I will continue to tell friends, family, and acquaintances as I feel that everyone and anyone can benefit from some Kelly Rich in their lives.
Under Kelly Rich’s tutelage I have grown leaps and bounds in my Yoga and Ayurvedic wellness journey. I feel more grounded than I ever have in my life and am beholden to Kelly’s knowledge, experience and guidance. During yoga classes her presence is infectious. She teaches with grace and passionate expertise. My very recent Ayurvedic experience with Kelly was eye opening and unique. It was the perfect formula for future health and wellness. I am more mindful, calm and vital thanks to Kelly Rich.

I have been fortunate to know Kelly as a yoga teacher and an Ayurvedic practitioner. When I first met Kelly, I knew I was in the presence of someone truly special, she is a born healer. Kelly has a way of making you feel safe both externally and internally. Her practice cultivates acceptance, empowerment and surrendering. Kelly is able to meet you where you are at, hold space for you and offer strength and love. Kelly is magical and being in her presence is a gift.

Whether she is leading you through an outdoor yoga class, guiding you through a nourishing restorative class with Reiki assists or engaging in a passing conversation with you before or after class, Kelly is thoughtful, open and engaging in her nature. She is the kind of person you want to have in your life if you are looking to heal and transform. I have had the honor of taking various yoga classes and workshops, as well as participating in an Ayurvedic consultation session with Kelly. She is knowledgeable about what she teaches, recognizes the complexities of every day life, and will give you real life tools if you are looking to grow.
Whenever my friends ask me about trying a yoga class, I always recommend Kelly as a teacher. She has a gift in creating a calm and welcoming space. Kelly offers an encouraging energy to those who take her classes, allowing for moments to connect with what’s inside – pause, reflect and of course, breathe. Kelly has taught me how to deepen my yoga practice on the mat but has helped to guide me in bringing the principles of yoga with me off the mat as well.

Kelly feels warm and safe the minute you meet her! Her ability to make you feel comfortable and stay grounded is a true gift and allows one to open up and share the details necessary to heal.
Kelly’s honest and vulnerable about her healing which allows her to be a true beacon of medicine. I have been inspired and guided by Kelly’s yoga and Ayurvedic practice and excited to see what else she has to offer! If you love connecting to your body and letting nature’s medicine heal you, she is the right fit!

Kelly’s class was different than how I thought it would be. I was expecting poses that I would not be able to complete or that I would get called out for my bad form. I like how she kept saying that that the shape we take doesn’t matter, and that we can fill the space however our body chose to. It took a lot of the pressure and stress of trying to perform the motions perfectly away.

I have to say this yoga and meditation (class) was my absolute favorite. I loved every aspect of it. I love how Kelly took charge of the class and made it very relaxed and comfortable. I never felt judged or watched, I felt comfortable doing what I could and trying my best to get it done. I love yoga and now thanks to this experience, I love meditation.

I really like Kelly as an instructor because she presented herself really well and she was giving us raw information and her real opinions. I felt reassured to know that yoga was more about what I decide to do to my body and how I want to push it to a certain discomfort level. It was good to be reminded by Kelly about what I can control in life and what I cannot; also a good reminder for me as a student and also as a healthcare provider later, that we can try to please the patients but we should not let their actions affect how we feel in life.

Kelly opened my eyes up to the fact that yoga can be whatever you want it to be. Its not necessarily about technique and form and doing everything perfectly. It’s a lot about what you make of it and creating your own experience.
The yoga and wellness retreat I’ve just returned from with Kelly Rich was spectacular. The process was honestly seamless and SO worth the package price, given all that was included! I don’t usually spend on myself and this was so worth it. The food was ridiculously incredible, lodging, accommodations…Kelly’s teachings…all of it!! I loved our schedule and never felt rushed or bored in between the events. I will be waiting anxiously for the next retreat. I have been recharged and have made BEAUTIFUL new friendships this experience.
Kelly has a way of making Yoga accessible to everyone. It was as if the class was designed for me and what I needed that day. Kelly is a very bright, caring, and mature young woman. She has a servant’s heart and a strong desire to help people. Not just a teacher, she is a lifelong student, always looking for ways to improve her skills with something new to share with those who make time to show up for her classes. Oh yeah, that Kelly Rich. She is the best!
Having a session with Kelly was the most beautiful thing I could have offered to myself. I appreciate Kelly’s wisdom, kindness and intuition which felt so connected to my truth that has needed to be expressed.
My heart feels so much lighter after sitting with Kelly for an intuitive reading. So much releasing. I am thankful for her insights. So much gratitude.
I was called to do Kelly’s intuitive mentorship 1:1 and have learned to trust my internal compass in a way I never allowed myself to in the past. I now have the tools to honor my gifts without making myself small. Kelly is authentic and her open heart cultivates a space without judgement and fear. Only wisdom. I am so grateful for Kelly as she is a true healer.
I am surprised by how much I am now able to trust myself, my intuition, and the path I am on since the first Intuitive Mentorship session. I feel more reliant on myself and less on outside influences. I feel inspired to continue working with my gifts and to be patient with the process. Overall, I am beginning to trust myself more and that is unveiling more visions, courage and excitement for this journey I am on. I am grateful for Kelly’s wisdom, patience and compassion throughout this process!
Kelly’s classes have truly been life changing for me. I highly recommend checking her out. Even if you don’t live in Maine, it’s totally worth planning to take part in a Bug Light Yoga classes during your Portland getaway.”

Yoga at Bug Light really sparked (and continues to foster) tremendous and wonderful changes in my life.
I was called to do the mentorship and have learned to trust my internal compass in a way I never allowed myself to in the past. I now have the tools to honor my intuitive gifts without making myself feel small. Kelly’s authenticity and open heart cultivate a space where there is no judgement, no fear — only wisdom. This has solidified when I listen to my soul, I live my truth and am free. I am so grateful for Kelly, she is a true healer. She embodies her truth and makes it impossible to not embody yours.
I was gently guided to tap into my own power and heart. Kelly has granted me access into the teachings of my own soul and feelings, showing me how to trust my gut and lean into the emotional and energetic experience of life.
I am empowered to the cellular level thanks to your connection to spirit. Thank you, thank you. Thank you for the empowerment.
I am personally grateful for your courage to speak truth to the people. You’re a living inspiration of what it looks like when someone is willing to walk through the jungle of suffering on a mission to find light and love in it all.
Kelly’s guidance is still echoing through me. I recently offered Reiki in my yin class and a student came up after and asked ME the same advice I asked KELLY a few months ago. I felt so connected to my Reiki tonight and it really is growing stronger and stronger and more palpable. I am so in awe of her wisdom and the impact it has had on me.
Bug Light Yoga with Kelly Rich is a joyful weekly highlight for me! Her gentle nature helps me leave my daily worries behind to experience a truly restorative yoga class. As I move though each pose, I can watch sailboats crisscross the bay, breathe in the salty air and feel cooling ocean breezes. Glorious!
I am so much more in tune to trusting and listening to my needs than ever before and I’m so freaking thankful!
