Kelly Anne Thune, B.S., M.A.T., C.A.S.


After being injured by a student while working as a school leader in 2017 and ultimately losing her health, career, financial stability, and home; Kelly developed a six month plan, a year plan, and a two year plan towards regaining health and purpose. Part of her plan has been embodying the Finnish cultural context of sisu; a noun and a verb that translates to having perseverance, integrity, and tenacity when presented with life’s most significant challenges. Kelly demonstrates sisu in action and will help you to discover it for yourself! She has used her background in science, education, and working with people to develop resilience workshops that will help individuals overcome challenges in their lives. Formats include individual consulting, workshops, and presentations. 


Kelly has learned that yoga, with its focus-enhancing and nervous system/brain empowering qualities, may lead you on a new path and create a new you after concussion or other c. Kelly, educational consultant, has created a yoga class that she calls sisuyoga blending Hatha and Vinyasa Flow with learning how sisu can help you to approach any challenge. Group and individual private classes. She is RYT-200 certified as well as certified by the  Love Your Brain Foundation as a yoga instructor for concussion/mTBI.

After, I am available on an hourly basis to give non-medical advice about how you can develop sisu and recapture your life after concussion/mTBI. I can also use my >10 years of experience as an administrator to advocate for you at school or work as you return to your life after trauma.
