About Me

In 2004, Shell began her journey into teacher training with her first taste at leading and facilitating basic asana classes. In 2011, she had a major discovery and heart-opening with her first guide Sandra Sammartino when she realized that her path was meant to bring Yoga to students who need and deserve care and compassion.

Shell has immersed herself in the study of the history and roots of Yoga, both at home and abroad. Most importantly, she made two pilgrimages through India where she visited beautiful sacred historic temples and vibrant ashrams. Through enriching conversations with teachers, guides and local Yogis, she learned firsthand about the importance of Sangha (community) and traditional principles of Yoga dating back centuries. Shell’s goal through her Yoga travels and studies is to ensure that her practices and teachings are as accurate, authentic and honourable as possible.

An aspiring Bhakti Yogi at heart, Shell practices the Yogic technique of Kirtan (call and response mantra chanting) with groups of people who wish to celebrate life and love through music, mantra and meditation. She can be found playing her harmonium and chanting in-person at workshops, retreats, Yoga festivals and Yoga studios, as well as virtually through her livestream sessions and on her YouTube channel.
