As a Physical Therapist and Yoga Therapist, I integrate yoga therapy into my clinical practice to help people who live with a variety of conditions, including persistent (chronic) pain, acute MSK injuries, and pelvic floor health issues.
Shelly is a physiotherapist, yoga therapist, pioneer of PhysioYoga, and educator with over 20 years of experience in working with people in pain. She is a Pain Care U Trainer, teaches in yoga and physiotherapy programs, presents at international conferences, contributes to academic research and writing, provides mentorship to health professionals, and offers onsite and online continuing education courses for yoga and health professionals on topics surrounding persistent pain, compassion, pelvic health, and professional burnout. Shelly is co-editor of the book Yoga and Science in Pain Care: Treating the Person in Pain and author of the chapter Compassion in Pain Care. She maintains a clinical practice in Sylvan Lake, Alberta, Canada and believes that meaningful connections, spending time in nature and sharing joy can be powerful contributors to healing and well-being.
