Learn sophisticated tools, bio-mechanics & techniques to realign the body and breath. Inviting prana to move more optimally, bringing a delight and joy to the practices of yoga. An intensive understanding of the ‘how’s’ and ‘why’s’ yoga has the potential to create an alchemical space in which the body/mind can transform. Held in the context of our highest potentials, asana, pranayama, mantra, movement and structural integrity are revealed to elicit the innate body’s natural intelligence and awakening. An exploration of the anatomy will be blended with yogic mythology, subtle systems as well as a deep sense of connection and beauty from within.

"Shelley’s 200 Hour Online Yoga Teacher Training has been a dynamic experience. As a Yoga teacher and student, the content and practical work has added a rich dimension to my teaching and personal practice.
Each module offered thematic discussion, tools, resources and practices which have helped me to expand personally and professionally. The one-on-one mentorships were a bonus as we could elaborate on specific topics, discuss ideas and get a fresh perspective for our projects.
Shelley’s warmth, knowledge, and passion is clearly evident. She is very encouraging, supportive and experienced.
I would definitely recommend taking an online training with Shelley. Her course has helped me to deepen my practice and has inspired me to further my studies."
