"Sun on my face, salt in the air, sand in my hair."


Growing up in Minnesota, Kelly Wetherille spent her weekends swimming and waterskiing in lakes, hiking and backpacking in the woods, cross-country skiing, and inline skating. Whether swimming, snorkeling, SCUBA diving or relaxing on the beach, she has always loved being in and around the water. She got her first taste of stand up paddleboarding and SUP yoga in 2014, and was immediately hooked. Less than a year later, she followed her passion for fitness and lifelong love of the outdoors and being in the water to San Diego, where she successfully completed the industry's leading teacher training course. Kelly is the first PaddleFit and Stoked Yogi certified instructor in Japan, and she could not be happier to be bringing these wonderful sports to the country she has called home for over a decade.
