Shelley McCarten

Shelley McCartenShelley’s classes are down to earth, accessible and inquisitive, incorporating yoga postures injected with functional exercise and natural movement, to create strength and active flexibility from the inside-out.

Heading up the Pregnancy and Postnatal programme at Urban Yoga, her specialised knowledge is influenced by experts in these fields such as biomechanist Katy Bowman, yoga and Restorative Exercise Specialist Lauren Ohayon, renowned midwife Ina May Gaskin, pelvic floor Physical Therapist Julie Wiebe and yoga and Restorative Exercise Specialist Jenni Rawlings.

Shelley has been teaching since 2011 and is accredited with a Vinyasa Flow and Hatha Teaching Certificate with Katy Appleton, and Pregnancy and Postnatal Yoga with Uma Dinsmore Tuli, however, her constant curiosity in body-mind-movement means she is continuously deepening her knowledge in somatics and exercise science.

Shelley is currently studying the 52 Everyday Biomechanics course with Katy Bowman, and will be training in the Restore Your Core programme with Lauren Ohayon in 2017. She is also the creator of Mama Body Mind, a pregnancy, postnatal and parenting programme that specialises in yoga inspired, functional movement for mamas.

Shelley takes our Dynamic Flow Saturday morning class and heads up our Pregnancy Yoga Course and is thrilled to be offering an upcoming Postnatal Yoga Workshop on January 28th, 2017.
