Shirley Samson is a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) with Yoga Alliance, which acknowledges the completion of a yoga teacher training with an approved and active Registered Yoga School (RYS).

Shirley Samson, received her RYT-200 registered yoga teacher certification from The Yoga School of Covington, Covington, LA, under the direction of senior teacher, Becky Gelatt, whose teachings are rooted in the lineage and tradition of T. Krishnamacharya, T.K.V. Desikchar, and Gary Kraftsow and the Viniyoga Tradition, with a strong Iyengar background and influence. Continuing her education, she received her RYT-300 registered yoga teacher certification from Yoga Path, Baton Rouge, LA, under the direction of senior teacher, Kate Suchanek, whose teachings are also rooted in the lineage and tradition of T. Krishnamacharya, T.K.V. Desikchar, and Gary Kraftsow and the Viniyoga Tradition, along with the lineage of Kripalu.

Shirley’s goal as a yoga teacher is to create a safe, warm, and encouraging atmosphere for students to explore and expand within their own body and consciousness. She works with adults at slow-paced vinyasa practice, focusing on the mind-body connection with the breath. Teaching students to combine breath with movement in a balancing combination of gentle and challenging yoga postures designed to rejuvenate and relax the body. These classes are open to all levels.

Shirley also offers adaptive chair classes designed for seniors and those with limited mobility.  Gentle joint mobilization practices, along with poses adapted with props, allow students to feel safe as they work within their own pace of exploration.  Always emphasizing the practice of honoring the body’s current state through ahimsa (non-violence), students are guided by Shirley to explore all the possibilities yoga has, to improve the health and well-being of mind, body and spirit.
