Shelly Shern RYT Minneapolis
Shelly’s devotion to the yogic path began in 1995 after suffering a back injury. She realized profound benefits not only to the physical body but to the spiritual as well. This naturally led her to switch from “flying the friendly skies” to the more grounded calling of teaching yoga. Shelly trained at the Yoga Center of Minneapolis with Lisa Bergly in 2005-2006 and trained in Yoga Bonding Post-natal. This connection led her to the teachings of Kriya Yoga and Enoch Dasa Giri of the Temple of Kriya Yoga in Chicago.
After shelly had asked as much from her yang vinyasa practice as she could, she was drawn to the deeper, more contemplative practice of yin yoga. It is yin yoga that balances a more active yang practice and enhances our well being. In the summer of 2010, Shelly traveled to Kripalu to study Insight Yoga with Sarah Powers. This continuing study of the energy body allows Shelly to share the calming, healing effects of yin yoga with her students. Her classes are a synthesis of flowing movement, breath awareness, and still contemplation.
