Shelly works full time as a nurse practitioner in a dermatology practice. With a lifetime focusing on health promotion and illness prevention, yoga has become a natural progression in her life.
In 2006 after a negative life-changing event, Shelly searched for answers in her life. She began taking yoga classes and found the result profoundly effective. The integration of body - mind - spirit became such a powerfully positive force she completed a Yoga Alliance approved 200-hour teacher training program, followed by the advanced 300-hour program and a training in iRest - Integrated Restorative Yoga Nidra.
Shelly incorporates pranayama (breathwork), asana (postures) and meditation into her daily life. The combination of personal practice and teaching yoga continues to be an important balance for fulfillment. The advanced continuing education programs and in-depth self study complement and benefit her life and practice.
