KELLIE MOLIS

Advanced IPT Facilitator & 200 hr. YTT Yoga Instructor

Kellie was able to first experience “the process” back in 2008.

Then in 2010 when she stepped foot into The Institute of Healing Arts school… she felt like she was HOME!

Kellie has been able to help people at rehabilitation centers, gyms, studios, corporations, and individual sessions by getting out of their minds and into their hearts to access their truer, authentic selves. She has been able to see clients improve greatly from emotional and physical trauma. She is able to take clients in person or over the phone in Utah or outside of Utah.

Sara graduated in 2016 with a “Clinic in Excellence” award. Sara also has an Emotional Health Practice in Heber City, Utah.
