The POP UP YOGA DSM founders and I share a belief in the power of community. We are absolutely better together! It is my obligation as a human being to do all I can to use my skills and talents to help empower others to become their best selves and live their best lives. We all need a partner in that sometimes and that is why I became a coach. It is truly my calling.

Hi Shelby! Who are you + what is your story? 
I’m a wife, a mom, a business owner and a breast cancer survivor.  Our family had started our change over to a healthier lifestyle about 5 years ago, when I was diagnosed with breast cancer. It rocked our world, but we were determined to no let it BE our world.  I dug deeper into cleaner living and discovered yoga. It was life changing and had a huge role in my recovery.
