Kathleen Kelley is an associate professor of physical therapy at Quinnipiac University. She has taught in the areas of neurologic rehabilitation, balance, falls and vestibular dysfunction for 20 years.

At the conclusion of the study, the participating facility hired a full time yoga teacher and continues to offer yoga two times per week, free of charge, to all its residents.
