What graduates have said about Shelley's online Teacher Training experiences:
"As a fitness educator and former nurse, I have actively taught yoga for several years. However, I wanted
to add more depth to my yoga teachings and took on an extensive search looking for the perfect
teacher. I consulted the internet, friends and local yoga mentors. My search ended when I met Shelley via Zoom.
A pandemic brings with it much uncertainty including the prospect of online yoga certification. I was
needlessly concerned as Shelley put me at ease immediately. Shelley’s extensive practitioner resume
speaks for itself, but the experience of her teacher training and mentoring offered me so much more
than I had anticipated. Honest, open hearted access, one on one mentoring, small class size,
accountability and genuine learning resulted in a deep understanding of the yoga principles and it’s
applications on and off the mat. I also found I achieved some physical relief from chronic back pain
which has been resistant to traditional methods of healing (massage, physiotherapy, etc).
Shelley takes a genuine intersect in her students. The relationship that emerges is one of authenticity,
care and kindness. Her high standard for teaching is apparent and resonates throughout.
The online training more than prepared me as I move forward in my yoga journey and in life. I would
highly recommend if you are searching, as I was, search no more."
Dawn Balic, BScN, CFES Educator
"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."
Naomi Gourlay, Founder of CowGirl Yoga
"Stepping into a practice with Shelley has always been a transformative experience. Her sequencing, cues and her knowledge of yoga is comprehensive and unique. I still find myself in poses that I have never been in after 15 years of practice when I am under her guidance.
I have thought about participating in a Yoga Teacher Training for many years. One of the barriers to enrolling was the block of time necessary to commit to a destination training or even local trainings. Having the ability to do the training online part-time has allowed for me to complete the training with a ton of flexibility as I was able to travel on the weekends, complete my training and still have a large portion of my day open on the weekends.
If you are looking to begin the journey into yoga, I highly recommend this as the place to start. Shelley’s ability to seamlessly teach yoga on and off the mat was the exactly the experience I was looking for to deepen my practice."
