Meet Shelley . . .

Certified: 2006
Started Teaching at BYCK: 2007

 

After many hamstring injuries, torn calf muscles and weakened knees from years of running, I knew I needed to find an activity that would enable me to get a strong cardio workout without creating high impact on my body.

 

I started my Bikram Yoga journey in Colorado. I took my first class reluctantly, as I hadn’t been very impressed with other yoga classes I had taken, nor did I think of myself as the "yoga type." By the end of my first class, my reluctance had melted away, and I knew immediately that I had found what I had been looking for. After my first week, I knew I was hooked. I recognized immediately that the specific health benefits that would be long lasting. Having done most every form of exercise out there, I knew this was one I would and could continue to do forever." The next six months of practicing, with Grace Tung as my main instructor and true inspiration, led me to the realization that I needed to become a Bikram Yoga Teacher to enable others to find what I had found. It was this realization that brought me to the Bikram Yoga Training in the Spring of 2006. I am thrilled to be able to have the opportunity to teach, as well as witness the transformations in my students that I recognized in myself through the practice of Bikram Yoga.



Shelley instructs the following:
  • Bikram 90 Minute
  • Bikram Yoga is a demanding series of 26 specific postures and 2 breathing exercises suitable for all ages and levels of ability. The series is designed to work the entire body in 90 minutes. The specific sequence of postures works synergistically and cumulatively, each posture preparing the body for the next. This helps undo some of the damage from sedentary lifestyles, high-impact activities such as running and aerobics and the normal deterioration that comes with age, helping return the body to a more balanced state of health.

    With a regular practice, you will experience some of these many benefits:

    • Increase in strength and muscle tone
    • Increase in flexibility of the spine and whole body
