Shelagh

Shelagh began her practice in 1996 to help alleviate career stress, and began teaching yoga full time in 2001. With a degree in psychology, she brings fun, acceptance, and a down-to-earth, humorous approach to her classes. She tailors her teaching approach in a way that both supports and challenges students.
 
 
 
She is a self-confessed anatomy geek and done extensive studies in Yoga for Scoliosis with Elise Browning-Miller, and international studies in yoga and anatomy with Gary Carter in London, and Peter Blackaby in Windsor, England and Toronto, Canada.


Shelagh instructs the following:
  • Fundamentals Level 1

Learn the underlying fundamental actions and principles of poses and breath to get the most out of your practice. The use of props and modifications will also be taught. All levels welcome.

    Want to know why so many teachers have chosen the Dallas Yoga Center for their training? We invite aspiring teachers to join us for an open house on Saturday, July 29 to discover what makes DYC’s 200 Hr Teacher Training program. This afternoon event will include a question and answer session and light refreshments.

    Whether you’re planning on becoming a teacher or you simply want to deepen your understanding of yoga as a subtle, sophisticated art form, this training will bring meaning and inspiration back to your practice.

    We look forward to giving you a glimpse into how DYC has refined our integrative 200 Hour Teacher Training program over the decades to provide a solid foundation for teaching yoga, as well as a transformative process to deepen not only your understanding yoga, but provide the tools to help highlight and strengthen the unique gifts each person brings when they share their passion for yoga.

    When you truly commit to this amazing process and allow yourself to see, feel and embody this practice and the guidance provided, you will discover more than you ever imagined possible about yourself, about yoga and about your own unique voice and gifts as a teacher. But it takes work, it takes committing to yourself, your fellow trainees and your teachers that allows you to find the jewel of the self just waiting within each of us...just waiting to be polished. And in the midst of this transformative process, you will find a community of likeminded souls and lifelong connections. Start your journey with us this fall!

  • Fundamentals Level 1-2
  • Regular practitioners are invited to further explore the principles of yoga in a steady, mindful manner. This class is designed to progressively develop strength, flexibility and body intelligence by introducing more advanced postures and breathing techniques in a supportive environment of enthusiastic practitioners. Often timed inversions, hand balances, deep backbends, and leg behind the head are touched on in this class. You are not expected to know how to do these postures but ready to explore them.
     

  • Therapeutic Yoga
  • Allows students to re-educate movement patterns, as well as increase body intelligence & awareness. In this class modifications and props are used generously in order to target specific injuries or concerns. Poses are mostly passive with some core stabilization. The aim is to learn how to adapt and modify postures in order to best serve each individual. This class is recommended for those working to recover range of motion from prior injuries, learning how to intelligently re-engage after full recovery from surgery, and older students needing to modify their practice.

    This series is appropriate for students who have been released from their doctor’s care and have completed physical therapy. Parameters for participation include: the ability to get up and down off the floor without assistance, freedom from medical devices, and no active disc issues. Students with joint replacements may need a private session prior to joining series to learn modifications specific to their replacement and range of motion.
    Please feel free to email or call the front desk for additional information or questions regarding this class and to determine if private instruction, a session with one of our holistic practitioners, or a referral to a physician, is a more appropriate direction for your specific circumstances.
