About Shelley

Shelley is a spiritual leader who strongly believes in the body-mind-spirit connection and the practice of living in the present moment. Yoga, pranayama and meditation are essential tools that help her find freedom, one day at a time, from her lifelong struggle with food & weight and to cultivate serenity in her body & mind. Shelley has a warm, casual, open and enthusiastic style. She believes change is hard, but is made easier with support. Shelley has led yoga and meditation retreats in the U.S. & Costa Rica.  She loves connecting with those who are curious to help themselves, knitting, nature, animals & day trips. She lives with her husband Steve and 2 cats in Southington, CT.
