Like many women today, Kelly is multi-dimensional. She is passionate about fashion, food, fitness and travel to name a few things. She was born a fashion addict; starting at age 4, she refused to leave the house without a dress and a purse. In many cases she wore them with sneakers so she could still play with the other children. When it comes to food, she cooks many of her meals at home in order to source the purest ingredients while supporting local farmers in Union Square. Kelly also believes that travel is one of the greatest gifts that life has to offer. Her interest in other cultures sprouted at home by being immersed in two very distinct cultures. Kelly is half Irish and half Dominican and grew up bilingual. She went on to major in Italian and French while at NYU and got the travel bug while studying abroad in Florence, Italy. Kelly is on a spiritual journey and lives a life dedicated to being in the present moment. Every day she seeks to improve her relationship with her Self by always accepting who she is with gratitude and grace.

Kelly shares a Monday Mantra post every Monday. It is a quote that has provided Kelly with some inspiration. In her post she shares her interpretation of the quote and an intimate glimpse of any personal challenges. Thursdays are dedicated to a fashion post. Fashion posts tie to seasonality and the ever expanding world of fitness-fashion.

Kelly strongly believes that a healthy lifestyle is a true commitment to yourself. You have to nourish your body, mind and soul in order to unlock infinite potential. She hopes that KOREbyKelly will provide you with some inspiration and looks forward to any comments or questions that you would like to share.


When it comes to fitness, Kelly maintains that multidimensional quality and loves to study different movement methods that inspire and challenge her as a student and a teacher. Recognizing that there is so much to learn and apply when it comes to movement, she keeps education at the forefront of her teaching. Learning from various teachers and philosophies allows her to truly create a unique experience that she is able to offer others. Through education, she is able to innovate and implement new tactics to keep her classes fresh and her approach distinct.

Kelly Finnegan is a 300+ Hour Yoga Alliance Certified Instructor. Her interest in yoga began when she was 16 years old and it was love at first back bend. She received her certification in Bari, Italy while spending a year living abroad in the Amalfi Coast in 2008. She completed a Hot Yoga Vinyasa training with Jimmy Barkan in Costa Rica April 2015.

Kelly offers her own personal spin on this tried and true method.
