If you aren't in a class taught by Shelly you might be next to her in class. As much as she loves teaching, she loves taking class and being a part of the BYB community. She loves to empower others and find daily mantras to live by. Every class with Michelle is authentic, unique and challenging and will leave you feeling lighter, stronger and better connected to your mind and body. If you are interested in a new challenge or yoga pose, let Shell know. She loves to learn, grow and challenge you with a new playlist every time!
If she's not on her mat, you'll find Michelle hanging with her firefighter twin sis, brothers or hunky lions fan husband, planning her next camping/ hiking adventure, or eating awesome food or serving at Palace Kitchen.
Shayla is a fitness and weightloss coach who fell head over heels in love with yoga while practicing at BYB. She began her practice to rehabilitate a hurt ankle (from over exercising) and discovered a deep appreciation for vinyasa. Combining the physical and spiritual practice changed the way she started to view her body, exercise, and emotional well being. The biggest gift was the stress reduction that yoga offers, which was LIFE CHANGING. She completed the Vinyasa teacher training at BYB in March with the intention of deepening her own practice, and eventually felt called to step into a teaching role. She loves to create an all inclusive atmosphere where all people feel welcomed, challenged, and successful during her classes. The aim is to empower each person to have fun and explore their own personal physical possibilities. She recognizes that the practice of yoga happens on and off of the mat. Her intention is to build community, inspire others to believe in themselves, and share the yoga love.

Each class will follow the same basic format of using Vinyasa flow (yoga) to warm up, introducing weights throughout our flow. This class is designed to create long, lean muscle mass, burn fat and increase fitness levels. Get ready to build strength and have fun doing it.
*Though beginners are always welcome, having taken a few vinyasa classes prior is recommended. Students are always encouraged to rest when needed and move at their own pace.
