Children’s Yoga: Parent and Child Ages 4-8
"This class is a delightful mixture of relaxation and fun:
a perfect way to spend quality time with your child!"
"Shirley teaches yoga through creative play and movement
that kids and parents love. I am delighted to be a part of a
class where I still get to interact with my 7 year old twins."
Yoga and the Arts for Children 9-14
"When Shirley started working with our son in 4th grade;
he was totally stuck with his writing. She used her
intuitive skills with children and helped him get unstuck!"
"When Shirley started helping our sons by using Yoga and Art,
we were amazed how effective it became for calming and a way for
our boys to express themselves. They couldn’t wait until the next time!"
Therapeutic Yoga for Teens
"My husband and I have been foster parents for twelve years.
We recently opened a girl’s group home ranch. Shirley has tutored
our youngest adopted daughter for a few years now. Since she has
worked with Shirley she’s really thrived, not only academically but
with her behaviors as well. Shirley now teaches yoga to the girls
in our group home. The sessions are the highlight of their week.
Yoga has really helped them bond with each other as a family;
they’ve also learned some relaxation techniques along with having
a lot of fun. Shirley is a very important part of our team."
"My daughter has been participating in workshops and classes taught
by Shirley for about 3 years and she loves them! She is now 13 years old
and has a developmental disability caused by a Traumatic Brain injury
suffered at age two. She loves the classes and the environment is one of
acceptance, nurturing and support. She has tons of fun in theses classes
and would love to have them all of the time? She has grown by leaps and
bounds in her self confidence and her ability to get up in front of
audiences to perform what she has learned in her classes. Shirley is a
great support for her kids and takes their progress seriously. She is
always looking to the future as to how to bring the classes to other
kiddos who would benefit from the experience. I have worked in Human
Services fields for the past 20 years and have experience working with
other families who parent children with special needs. I would support
her program expanding so that other families might have the same
opportunity to see their children benefit! Shirley and her other team
members are in this field for the long-term benefits to the children!"
"Prenatal yoga created positive results that carried through
my pregnancy, labor and delivery, and postpartum experience.
Not only did it help to build my strength, balance, and teach me
beneficial breathing techniques, but it created a lasting bond
between my baby and me that made my transition into motherhood
incredibly joyful and fulfilling."
"Taking a yoga class with Shirley is a deeply satisfying
experience that leaves one with a sense of grace, both physically
"A great training to begin yoga practice with all
developmental stages of youth."
"Shirley’s commitment to the health and welfare of children
is inspiring, (Her) innovation and imagination in the service of
that commitment continues to amaze me. It has been an honor to
be among the first to participate in this new program…"
