how we roll.

We’re different. And we can be radical, we know. But don’t be fooled. There’s a method to the madness. At Catalyst, we work from the inside out, investing in you first.

We start with personal development, breaking down what you love; what differentiates you; what gets in your way? Through mind-body practices like meditation, yoga and somatic experiencing we’ll tease out your fears, limitations, and motivations so that you’re operating on all cylinders, from a core that is strong and rooted. 

Together, we’ll work closely to collaborate on competitive landscape, creative expression, and strategic mapping to help you breakthrough to powerful results and social impact.

Corporate executive, athlete turned yogi, nonprofit managing director, coach, organizer, agent of change.

Kerri is the founder of CTZNWELL, an emerging movement to mobilize people into a powerful force for wellbeing for all. She spent seven years as Executive Director of the non-profit Off the Mat, Into the World and is currently board chair. She is relentless in her commitment to elevating leaders, groups and projects to next-level social change makers through her work with The Catalyst Collective, an innovative consultancy designed for mission-based individuals, groups, and organizations that want to be successful and make a difference in the world.

 Kerri Kelly is a force of nature. She is a skilled yoga teacher, motivating students to effect change in their lives. She’s a fierce coach, whose ability to turn ideas into purpose and action is a gift. And she plays big; straddling the mindfulness and political worlds, so that the social change makers—the visionaries—she works with can mobilize and organize effectively. 

 Kerri was on the fast track in the marketing world until 9/11 hit, when she lost her stepdad, a NYC fireman. That was the wake up call that got Kerri off the “should” path and into purpose. To her surprise, yoga was the most powerful source of healing and transformation during that time. She took the leap and has been on a crusade ever since to elevate wellbeing and help others discover their greatest potential.

 Kerri is recognized across communities for her inspired work to bridge transformational practice with social change and politics. She’s been instrumental in translating the tools of wellbeing into practical application and social action in the public sector, working in collaboration with community organizers, spiritual leaders and policy makers. She is a commitment to personal transformation that leads to powerful social change.
