Shelly Stempfle

Yoga Instructor

Shelly was initially introduced to yoga 4 years ago after a good friend dragged her to a hot vinyasa class. Although she struggled to make it through the class, she immediately fell in love with the physical and mental challenge that yoga offers, and has since been practicing daily. She has gone on to grow her experience and completed her 200-RYT at Beaumont School of Yoga Therapy. She has benefited from the increased physical strength and flexibility yoga provides, but also the calm centering affects that have carried off the mat into her daily life.

As a triathlete and a runner, she has incorporated yoga into her training programs, to remain injury free and improve her overall performance. She has a background in Sports Medicine and has worked in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation for the last several years and hopes, through teaching yoga, she can help others to experience the same benefits she has, both on and off the mat.
