Shelby Torrese has been practicing yoga since the age of eight - thanks Mom! As a
dancer, Shelby fell in love with the synchronicity and discipline of Bikram yoga. By high school,
she had switched gears and dedicated herself to a predominantly Vinyasa and Restorative
practice. Her passion continued through college and in 2014 she received her 200-HR
certification from then Baptiste-affiliate studio, Bala Vinyasa, in Miami with Kiersten Mooney.
Teaching quickly became her passion and Shelby was teaching to every population she could -
athletes, students, children, disabled, corporate, long-time practitioners and everyone in
between. Shelby completed her 300-HR certification in 2017 with Jenny Vande Hei of RA Yoga
where her passion rooted deeper. Since then, Shelby has assisted in a 200-HR training in Bali,
Indonesia and teaches Hatha, Vinyasa, and private meditation classes. You can follow Shelby
