Inspiring Yogi | Shelley Tue

posted by Nancy Nelson

Another month, another very inspiring yogi to feature! This December, we are thrilled to highlight Highland Village yogi – Shelley Tue! Shelley is very dedicated to her practice and most days you can find her on her mat at the studio. Her joyous presence is felt by all! We are excited for you to get to know her a little bit better.


I have been practicing yoga at Inspire for going on three years. My husband tried to get me to start much sooner, but being an “athlete” I thought it wouldn’t be enough of a workout for me…so I continued to try the gym and personal trainers and was never satisfied. I couldn’t see a physical change in my body and didn’t enjoy working out. Finally, I tried Inspire and could not have been more wrong! Yoga has done more for my health, both physically and mentally, than any other workout I have ever tried. I am amazed!

My favorite pose is probably down dog. It is a restorative pose for me. You can pause in downward dog and get a break, catch your breath, and reset yourself – but you are still working all at the same time. It’s kind of like daily life, you just need those moments of renewing and refreshing to keep calm and peaceful, while still functioning and getting stuff done.

The instructors at Inspire are all great. They each have their own style, yet they all are consistent which makes every class enjoyable!

Thank you Inspire for inspiring me daily to be the best person I can be, the person God created me to be! You are all an inspiration!

Life has not been the same since finding Inspire Yoga in 2012. After the loss of a close friend, I found my mat to be a soft place to land in a difficult season of life. After attending classes consistently, I pursued the Inspire Yoga 200 and 300 hour teacher trainings and now hold my IYS500 certification as well as E-RYT200 and RYT500 with Yoga Alliance. I love sharing yoga with people and getting to offer a space for them to be just as they are - whether broken, joyful, happy, uncertain ...there is a space for you here at Inspire Yoga. My blog posts are a reflection of my passion for yoga and how it has impacted my life in such a healing way. I am the studio director at Inspire Yoga Denton and love doing life with such an amazing community! Outside of yoga, I am wife to Colin and mama to our sweet dog Ama. My faith makes me who I am.
