PMA® Certified Pilates Teacher
Apprentice GYROTONIC® Trainer
Masters of Physical Therapy (MPT)
Oncology Rehabilitation Specialist
Shelby took her first Pilates class in 2010 and was instantly struck by the way it encourages an achievable integrity of movement while nurturing the mind-body connection.
When, in 2015, Shelby was diagnosed with advanced stage cancer, she began exploring Pilates as a rehabilitative practice and contends that Pilates was integral to her recovery, both physically and emotionally.
Shelby's teaching is unassuming and playful, and reflects her multi-tiered approach to living a healthy life. She thrives on helping both the healthy and the infirm achieve physical wellness and a healthy sense of self.
Shelby's journey to helping others began in 2003 when she completed her Masters of Physical Therapy (MPT), specializing in vertigo, balance disorders, and geriatric mobility. She has since trained at the Professional Yoga Therapy Institute in North Carolina, completed a 600-hour Classical Pilates Apprenticeship at Somaspace, and earned her Oncology Rehabilitation Specialist certificate from the Physiological Oncology Rehabilitation Institute for healthcare professionals.
