Shelby graduated from Arizona State University with a degree in Business Economics. She worked in business sales for years when she stumbled upon what would quickly become her true passion - Bikram Yoga. Shelby took her first Bikram Yoga class in 2001 and knew that she would practice this yoga for the rest of her life. After the birth of her first daughter Shelby decided it was time to leave the corporate world and pursue her dream of becoming a Bikram Yoga teacher. She completed Bikram's Teacher Training in the Spring of 2005 and opened BYA with her husband in 2007. "Best job EVER! This yoga has changed my life and now I get to watch others transform their lives." Shelby has two daughters and a big black dog. She loves cooking, music, shopping and anything having to do with design. She can be easily bribed with a good cup of coffee and anything dark chocolate.
