Who I am, What Yoga I teach & Why I teach it!

My footprints on the bank of Ganges


Shelley (ShellsBells Yoga) 

So many yoga profiles tell the same story and my own unfolds similarly. I have practised yoga since I started at university over 15 years ago, an interesting hobby soon became a life-changing passion and I have been teaching yoga since 2007. Until the birth of my children I held a corporate career in tandem, but after experiencing how yoga and yoga nidra had supported my whole journey and helped me achieve optimal health and fertility, I decided to dedicate my life to teaching.

 My path has been blessed with many authentic teachers and after my original training and time in India in 2008, I went on to take further specialised teacher trainings in different areas of well-woman yoga, many of which I am privileged to have been taught by the leading authority in Yoga and women’s health Uma Dinsmore-Tuli PhD. The therapeutic applications have a special place in my heart and the power of yoga nidra is unrivalled.


The thing that keeps me teaching is the way that the science of yoga can meet each of us exactly where we are and take us where we need to be. Come to class for tight hamstrings and walk away touched by tranquillity or perhaps looking for something deeper but finding a physical release of tension.


Yoga gives my life an experiential framework for development, growth, health and happiness and I hope to share this with you... so, let me help you make your own yoga journey.
