"I am thrilled to share my experience of the 300HR Teachers Training in Tiruvannamalai, India with Shelley. It was a life-changing journey that filled my heart gratitude and honor. Shelley's guidance and wisdom throughout the course revealed depths and strength within my being and my asana practice. The focus on Yoga Therapeutics and Universal Principles of Alignment built integrity and a deeper understanding of my body's anatomy. The Ashram lifestyle, daily meditation, teachings, and Kirtan were inspiring, and the food was extraordinary. This was one of the most beautiful and transformational experiences in my life, and I am eternally grateful to Shelley and the Ashram hosts."
