About the Tutor

Shelly McArdle grew up in Tannum Sands, a town that has grown since she lived there. Her childhood was spent roaming in the beach scrub, exploring Wild Cattle Island, and swimming in the sea. She says these experiences taught her the healing power of our stunning natural environment; and that is why in later life she decided to combine her two great loves, the environment and yoga.

Shelly took up yoga in her twenties on the Sunshine Coast on the recommendation of her GP and mentor June Canavan as a treatment for anxiety. She later studied to be a yoga teacher. Her aim is to focus on the use of yoga as a way of healing emotional trauma and empowering people to regain strength in both body and spirit.
