“I’ve found my passion: helping people learn how to turn their workouts into moving meditations. I am a firm believer that any movement practice or physical exercise should be a celebration of what our bodies and minds are capable of. I plan my classes around challenging what we think we know about ourselves and practicing gratitude for all that our bodies do for us on a daily basis. “Shelly Morales
