We created our Yoga Shelter community beginning in West Bloomfield in 2004. Since then we have added locations in Royal Oak, Birmingham, Grosse Pointe,  Rochester Hills, and Southfield.


At Yoga Shelter, our goal is to create a welcoming place where yoga is accessible and affordable for everyone. We offer an introductory membership to allow new students to get to know us without a large financial obligation. Each class is open to all strength and experience levels, and we offer a variety of affordable class packages to suit your needs.

I was introduced to the world of yoga a few years ago through the group fitness industry and have since been able to train with and learn from some amazing yogis and yoginis. In my years of teaching yoga I have seen what an immense impact the practice can have on so many people. I have been greatly impacted by my person yoga practice and have had the opportunity to see the amazing ways yoga has helped so many of the students that have sweat,cried and grown on the floors of my classes. I am so grateful to be able to continue to share my practice and grow this amazing community with Yoga Shelter! I can't wait to meet everyone!

Janelle Beauchamp is passionate about two things: yoga and numbers.
She obtained her BBA in Accounting from WMU in 2004 and has over 10
years experience working as an accountant for companies such as
McDonalds and U.S. Cellular.
 
Her love for yoga blossomed while
living in Chicago where she joined Core Power's teacher training
program in 2011. She dabbled in teaching yoga but decided number
crunching was still her forte so in 2014 when the opportunity came along to
work in accounting at Yoga Shelter she new she had found her calling.
In 2015 Janelle assumed the role of CFO for Yoga Shelter. She is
dedicated to the financial success of Yoga Shelter and takes every new
day as an opportunity to grow a company that provides a service so
enriching to our mind, body, and soul.
Director of Student and Team Relations Teacher emily@yogashelter.com   Yoga helped me learn to love and accept myself, starting as a way for me to physically workout in a space that didn't leave me feeling insecure, and continuing as  a space where I can go to quiet my mind, work out my body, and have a deeper connection with myself. The fact that yoga is so accessible to all body types makes it the most beneficial physical, mental, and spiritual practice. I began practicing at Yoga Shelter in 2014, and loved the community so much that working here seemed to be obvious. Yoga Shelter helped me through the post-degree blues and confusion, and I've grown so much through this job. When I decided decided to take the Spring 2016 teacher training program, I was nervous, but gained strength throughout which gave me the confidence to teach classes. I hope that I can bring positive energy to all my classes, and that every time we meet in our studio spaces, we can be appreciative of this beautiful practice and community.
