Kelly Smiley is the owner and operator of Tahoe Flow Arts Studio.  Kelly graduated from UNR with a degree in education. Naturally attracted to Tahoe, Smiley was a snowboard instructor for 10 years.  However, after a snowboard injury, yoga, hula hooping and aerial fabrics restored her physical body and developed her emotional body. 


A natural born leader, Kelly is the lioness in a pride of relatable females.  She fell in love with the healing potential of flow arts and decided to lead the movement into our community.  In 2011, she co-created Flow Artistry, one of the first performance groups on the north shore. 


It took two years of sleepless meditation and precise manifestation, and when she showed the universe she was ready, Tahoe Flow Arts Studio came into fruition in May of 2013.
