When I wake up in the morning, I am stoked that I get the privilege of sharing my love for yoga with my clients. I mean, how lucky am I?! I am honored to be invited to participate in the healing journey of so many wonderful people. My clients literally ROCK my world! They inspire me to aim higher, never give up, keep commitments, and to live in the moment.
Below are some very generous reviews that they have given to me in my role of Yoga Instructor and Thai Yoga Bodyworker.
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
Always in love, Shanell
“I have been blessed to know Shanell for nearly 5 years. This is a testament to her commitment to health, dedication to excellence, skilled work in her chosen disciplines, and overall kind caring heart as holistic minded healer. As a double boarded Osteopathic Physical Medicine/Rehabilitation specialist and Sports Medicine Physician, I treat multiple medical problems and various disease states. Yet, I find limited attention to many aspects of patient healthcare in our current allopathic care models, with focus on disease identification, rather than prevention. With Yoga and individualized Bodywork, Shanell helps unlock the all important mind-body-spiritual connection whiled educating clients on posture, core, flexibility, and musculoskeletal system awareness via active mindful healthy living. She walks the walk and talks the talk everyday. I have no reservations referring my patients and family into her trusted care. Sincerely, Richard S. McPherson, DO”
“Shanell has changed my life. I have scoliosis and degenerative spinal disease. I was having to see a chiropractor 3-4 times a week until I met Shanell. Her thai yoga has made me move freely again. I dont have the back and neck pain I used to wake up with daily. Her yoga teachings have transformed my body. I have lost 6 pounds and am getting my core strong again. Thank you Shanell.” -Shannon, Thai Yoga and private and group yoga client
“Shannell does an awesome job!!!!!! I have MS and wasn’t able to wiggle the toes on my left foot, but now I can!!!! I can wear flip flops again!! She has really helped with the stiffness I feel. She helps my body feel almost normal again!!” -Andrea, Thai Yoga and private yoga client
“I tried yoga once on a whim and hated it!!!! Then I met Shanell and my perception of yoga has complete changed….I absolutely love my sessions with her. I’m practicing everyday the stretches she has taught me. My body is changing rapidly with the steady practice and her guidance. I love lifting weights and the only thing I have changed in my routine is adding Shanell’s Thai Yoga to my daily regiment and I am stronger, more energetic and my body is feeling amazing. Any fan of weights who thinks yoga is just for the slender folks, stop thinking that and give Shanell a try, I assure you, you will not regret it!” -Lee, Thai Yoga client
“Seven years ago I had my first of many surgeries. Since then I have been fighting, trying to ease the pain. A lifetime of sports had taken it’s toll. I fully understood that my career was over, but was not prepared for the effects on the other parts of my life as I struggled to adjust to the life of a retired athlete. I have seen the best doctors in the world and nothing has helped as much as Shanell and her blessed hands. Reiki, and body work are gifts from above! They have allowed me to live like I did 10 years ago…dancing and running are back on the agenda! Thank you Shanell!!” -Thai Yoga, Reiki, and private yoga client
“What a difference a Thai Yoga Bodywork session from Shanell makes!! I remember my first session with Shanell…..I was telling everyone that the session made me feel more relaxed, more open, more grounded and was ready to give up my monthly massage sessions for a Shanell Thai Bodywork session!! My personal Pilates practice has improved and grown stronger. I enjoy my weekly sessions and deeply miss them when I am away.” -Tammy, group yoga and Thai Yoga Bodywork Client
“I have been taking yoga classes on and off for 10 years and have found Shanell to be the most sincere, motivating, and challenging of instructors. She is able to make her students feel safe and accepted while pushing them to achieve a higher level of flexibility and strength. I have also become a huge believer in Thai Yoga Body Works for the opening and stretching. Combined with my yoga practice, it is helping me have more open shoulders and hips and less low back pain. I genuinely look forward to and enjoy all of my session with Shanell.” -Nina, Thai Yoga and Private Yoga client
“Shanell is THE best Yogi ever!!! I first came to Shanell for Yoga class and Thai Yoga Bodywork. Shortly afterward, I developed hip alignment, hamstring and shoulder issues from a different form of exercise. Shanell relieved so much pain for me, and is opening up tight areas. Weekly sessions with Shanell have helped stretch my chiropractic appointments further apart, as well as improving my overall sense of calm and well being…Shanell has also shared great knowledge about diet and the use of food as medicine. Shanell is just a great resource for all things wellness!” -Michelle H.
“I have been a client of Shanell & Bound For Bliss Yoga for many months now and offer nothing but support & praise for her skills and talents. I have taken group yoga lessons, private yoga lessons and, most recently, Thai yoga body work sessions from Shanell, and could not have been more pleased with them all. She is highly skilled & very intuitive; one cannot help but notice that she loves what she does & loves helping others. Shanell works hard to stay current and to improve & grow as an instructor and therapist, and to offer her clients simply the best instruction & therapy available. I only wish we were situated closer so I could take better advantage of all that Shanell & Bound For Bliss Yoga offers. Thank you, Shanell, and I wish you continued success and happiness!” -Ollen, Thai Yoga and private yoga client
“Shanell is an excellent yoga instructor! We had her in Kansas for a Meditation and Movement Retreat and our retreatants loved her. She is passionate about her work and focused on the persons she is working with. Shanell also offered Thai Yoga Bodywork and that was a huge hit. Some of the comments that came after the sessions were: decreased appetite (amazing), more focus during meditation periods, and more comfortable and relaxed in general. We have invited Shanell back for another retreat in November and are very much looking forward to it!” – Sister Julie
