Frequently Asked Questions


Therapeutic Yoga: Shirley’s teaching is unique in that it is grounded in the principles of positional therapy and neurodevelopmental treatment to help you find freedom through smarter and safer movement patterns.

Location: Appointments may be arranged in your home, a local yoga studio or Shirley’s small yoga studio out of her home in Fort Collins.

Length of time: We find that 1 hour is a nice length of time for one-on-one yoga session. 1.5 hour sessions are great for those who will be traveling far or unable to attend frequently, or have a lot of specific questions they want answered.

Conditions and Customization: Private lessons are tailored specifically to you: your needs, conditions (pre- and post-natal, arthritis, etc, including any medical condition or injury), level of experience, special requests for adjustments or integration of ancestral embodiment work, breathe work, and the degree to which you want to focus on meditation, spirituality or more functional movement based practice. They are not a replacement for physical therapy.

All Levels: Private lessons are an ideal platform for all levels of yoga students to prevent injury, return back to the foundations of developing core strength and stability in your postural movement patterns and to embody action and breathe work as a liberatory practice.

Rates: Shirley is dedicated to sharing her teachings in the most accessible way possible to her community. Rates for private lessons with Shirley vary depending on location and length, and are offered on a sliding scale. For current in person-in rates, please contact me via email.
