To Book an appointment or class with Shelly Fruend:

I have worked as a physiotherapist for over 23 years, in a variety of settings including; rehabilitation, oncology, pre and post natal woman’s health and musculoskeletal  private practice and commenced working in Albury in Feb 2006.  I endeavour to create space for others to radiate wellness and remember wholeness through combing the science of physiotherapy & current pain neurophysiology information with the ancient wisdom of yoga & Hanna Somatic movement.

Initially my yoga teaching was inspired by a Satyananda yoga teacher and then I completed teacher training with Adam and Akash Bornstein, founders of Radiant Light Yoga and devotees of Paramahansa Yogananda, in 2004. During 2011/2012 I mentored  a dedicated group of yoga teacher trainees through Radiant Light Teacher Training.  I am currently a students of Hanna Somatics Movement with Lisa Petersen & commencing 3 yrs of clinical somatic training with  Martha Petersen in October 2016.

I am dedicated to my personal yoga & meditation practice experiencing their healing and transforming effects for over 19 years. I am committed to sharing from my heartfelt experiences.
