If you would like to offer support, either financial or volunteer, to the “reboot” please contact Kelly directly at

Here’s a brief history…

JoyBoots Yoga

JoyBoots Yoga for Cancer Survivors can be practiced by students of all levels and at any stage of their personal healing journey. All the practices can be modified for the individual’s needs. Chairs can be used for those who find it difficult to sit on the floor.

Taught by Kelly Inselmann, LCSW, C-IAYT, CGP. As a 16-year survivor of stage 3 breast cancer, Kelly has a deep and personal understanding of the emotional and physical challenges experienced during and post-treatment. She received her treatment at MD Anderson and has attended specialized yoga training there. She has been teaching yoga for over 25 years and draws from the traditions of kundalini yoga and somatic exercises for healing trauma.

Special attention is given to practices that focus on cultivating compassion for self and others while addressing lymphedema, fatigue, immune fitness, insomnia, anxiety and depression.

Participants have the experience of breath work, deep relaxation, and meditation in every class. Beginners are always welcome and usually present in every class.

I came away with a feeling of peace on Wednesday that I haven’t felt in a long time. It took me a long while to identify it! You are so gifted, and you have created a special space.

Thank you Kelly! I could speak at length of the good you do for all of us; more or less slightly damaged people who find our way to your class.

I come to this class to remember who I am and let go of other people’s expectations.

All I know is that if it’s a Wednesday, I’m going to yoga class. It’s hard for me to get up since I’m in the middle of treatment, but it’s the one time a week I know I might feel a moment of joy.
