About Me

Shell was introduced to yoga approximately 20 years ago, due to being in a car accident and dealing with a back injury and scoliosis. She slowly started dabbling in all different types of yoga in search of what would work for her body. This was where she developed the philosophy of doing yoga for her OWN body and not worrying about whether she could touch her toes or bend like the rest of the class. Her passion is to share what she knows about yoga to all people of all abilities. Self care and restoration is a theme that she brings to every class. Shell is a certified Infant Massage Instructor and a Prenatal and Postnatal Doula (Labour companion). Through her work as a Doula, Shell decided to research how yoga can help women through the whole birthing journey. She now has over 7 years of experience facilitating prenatal postures and working with pregnancy. Shell completed her Yoga Teacher Training in October 2011 through the South Okanagan Yoga Academy in BC and completed her designation of RYT 500 through Sammartino Yoga. Shell's belief is to "never stop learning", so she continues to learn not only from her many cherished yoga teachers and continued studies, but also through the wisdom and experiences of her students.
Shell completed her Thai Yoga Massage Certification in 2014 and is excited to share this new way of nurturing and healing with her students and clients.
