Meet Shelley . . .
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.
