“Shelley is amazing.

She seems to channel all the strong, inspiring, loving, mother goddess energy and infuse it into her students.
I would leave her prenatal yoga classes feeling in touch with my baby and every ounce of strength and wisdom within me. Her passion and skill are beyond anything I have ever encountered. She is going to change the world for the better and you should allow yourself to be touched by her light.”
~ Rachael Rainbolt
All offerings, whether it’s group classes or personal care, includes elements of ritual, which speaks the language of the feminine and heals the feminine soul.
“If you want to give birth to your true self, you are going to have to dig deep down into that body of yours and let your soul howl.”
–Gabrielle Roth
“Shelley was a spiritual guide during my pregnancy and birth process. I took lessons from her class with me into my birth experience and it helped me connect with the emotional and deeply spiritual aspect of birth. The music she suggested for labor still evokes the trance like state I was in for my labor.
“The acceptance and release I learned from her allowed me to experience the twists and turns of labor with grace. I still consider my birth to be one of the most amazing experiences of my life. It was magical.”
~ Catherine Sage
