Kelly DiNardo is a journalist who started a consistent yoga practice while procrastinating on a writing assignment. Parked on a yoga mat, she cleared her writer’s block and developed a new passion. DiNardo was first certified to teach yoga through YogaFit in 2003 and went on to receive her 200-hour RYT through Living Yoga Teacher Training. In 2009, she opened Past Tense yoga studio in Washington, DC.
Off the mat, DiNardo is the author of Gilded Lili: Lili St. Cyr and the Striptease Mystique, which earned a starred review from Publisher’s Weekly. As a freelance journalist she has written for several national publications including the New York Times, O: The Oprah Magazine, Health, Martha Stewart Living, and National Geographic Traveler.
