Hello, I’m Shel!
I want to empower all beings to be their authentic self, unapologetically – including you!
For me, yoga has been – and continues to be – a journey to my true self. Growing up I was always the outcast because I was too tall, too skinny, too pale, too smart, too whatever. Eventually, I stopped trying to be me and started to be more of what people wanted so much that I lost the connection with one of the most important people, me.
I know the struggle of low self-esteem, lack of confidence, and disdain for my body. I know what it’s like to be in room full of people and feel completely alone. I know how it feels to think “I’m not enough.”
What I’ve learned is how to accept myself. Instead of being ashamed of what others might see as imperfections and flaws, I am accepting them – without apology – as what makes me an individual and human.
Yoga gave me that. I want to do my best to share those gifts with you as well.
