I still do Yoga with Shelly

I love and miss Shelly as she is the one instructor that I still upload in my home and also when I travel. She doesn't push in order to teach and I tell all my friends about her. She is a treasure of a yoga teacher!

Thank you so much Charla! Glad I can still be with you - hopefully in person again soon in the not too distant future. Anyway, pleased to hear you're still taking the time to do yoga on your very busy book tour!

I never wanted to do yoga or meditation BUT

6 of us were assigned to Shelley as our much loved Pilates instructor went over-seas for a couple of months. 5 weeks later we are hooked on Yoga and really enjoy
our sessions with Shelley. She has guided us through the fledgling stages and we all feel marvellous. Thank you Shelley

Great Instructor

As a newbie to yoga I have found Shelley to be a great instructor. I thoroughly enjoy her approach. The yoga on the beach was a great introduction and a great way to start the day in summer. I've followed on to her regular classes, and noticed definite improvement. She always has ideas for staging development through the various poses so that as a beginner you don't feel overwhelmed. The classes are consistent but varied to keep things interesting.

Great yoga teacher

Targeted and specific guidance and instruction with just the right amount of underpinning knowledge to help you understand what you need to do and why.

Is she the best?

I think so... Shelley takes a fitness conditioning approach to yoga with the aim of increasing flexibility, agility and strength. It is not a spiritual style but she does insist on a good relaxation session at the end which lets the body and the mind wind down. This can actually be the hardest part at first but, when you get it, the technique comes in very handy in other spheres of life!


While it is a sports style it suits everyone - old and young - fit and not so fit.Shelley tailors the sessions to suit the people she has. Her Free Yoga on the Beach sessions in Summer attract people from all walks of life an all ages - and everyone loves it. Generally her studio classes are small and you get personal attention - every time. I am relatively new to yoga but I really do recommend it. It has done wonders for my back and knees and I am sure it made me 10 years younger!!

Shelley rocks

Shelley is a fantastic yoga instructor. I've done yoga on and off in many countries for years now, and some of the instructors I've had have pushed me into positions, and even insulted members of the class if they couldn't do it, but Shelley has infinite patience, and rather tells you what to alter on a position yourself, so you know how it feels, and can go to your own limits. She's friendly, knowledgable, and has made a huge difference in my body strength and flexibility. I never feel overstretched or sore, and always feel relaxed and energised after her sessions. Highly recommended indeed!

A great yoga teacher

Shelley is a great yoga teacher. I always feel good after her class. She is very experienced and highly qualified. I have been overseas for a few weeks and miss her yoga classes a lot. I am looking forward to resuming again on my return. Shelley is very caring of our local community and even offers free yoga on the beach in summer.

Community Concious Instructor

Shelley is a highly experienced and qualified instructor who not only demonstrates inclusion for all levels within her classes but also shows great community awareness through her actions an example of which is Free Yoga on the beach over summer.

I would highly recommend Shelley to anyone seeking best in class instruction physically and spiritually.
