Roaming Yogi Adventure Founders Kelly and Alice Chat ABout The OC Yoga Festival

Kelly and Alice founded Roaming Yogi Adventures, a bucket-list inspired yoga and adventure retreat company, in late 2016. From the volcanic tundras of Iceland to the jungles of Sri Lanka and all the way to the mountains of Peru, they have led groups of adventurous yogis to 4 continents in just 13 months, and they are just getting started.Their company message is that “when you explore the world around you, you can discover the world within you”. Whether they are off leading a retreat or teaching classes at home, their shared passions for mindfulness, yoga, and adventure always shine through.

Kelly’s teaching style stems from multiple aspects of her background and can be described as creative, athletic, and intuitive. Her classes focus on breath, proper alignment, and reconnecting the mind, body, and spirit. As a Reiki practitioner, she is passionate about guiding her students to reconnect with their life force energy and the power of manifestation.  Kelly’s goal is for her students to leave each practice feeling strong, open, balanced, and ready to live their best life. 

Alice also grew up active and involved in many sports, and has always been passionate about movement as both a creative outlet and form of therapy. Yoga has helped Alice connect with her inner guru and given her the tools and community to approach life more mindfully. Her intention with teaching is to hold space for students to do the same, and to inspire people to create their best lives. Alice is known for her ultra smooth vinyasa style, a perfect blend of salty and sweet that leaves students feeling replenished from the inside out.

Pina Tripodi, M.Ed, Reiki Master, RYT-200, & Kids Yoga Teacher

Pina always knew she was going to be a teacher, and for the past 8 years she has done just that as a special educator working with children and adolescents. Little did she know that this was just the beginning. When she allowed herself to receive all of the possibilities that were in store for her, she realized that there was so much more to learn and to teach to those ready to learn them.

Yoga, Reiki, art, & essential oils all hold a special place in her heart and have all been transformative methods of hollistic healing in her life . Pina feels there is nothing quite like being able to give love to another person in the form of creating, teaching, and healing.
