“I joined the sunshine practice because I wanted some inspiration & guidance into how to improve my daily practice with yoga, meditation and overall intuitiveness and it did not disappoint! Shelby cares so much about each person's individual experience during the course and does an amazing job at guiding you on your own personal journey, whatever that may be. The course helped me better understand myself and made meditating much less intimidating & do-able. If you're looking to grow your knowledge of yoga, meditating and really dig deep into your own mind & self, I highly recommend participating in this course! Afterwards, you'll feel like a new person"
“The Sunshine Practice helped me get from a dark mental space back to who I am and want to be. The daily activities and group yoga sessions helped me to stay focused on the positives in life, whilst acknowledging that past traumas and hurt are what builds us into stronger individuals. This was truly an incredible experience...those yoga sessions were absolute fire! You are the perfect woman to do this course with and I cannot thank you enough for creating such a sensational programme that truly brings peace and happiness into ones life!”
“The Sunshine Practice called to me at a time in my life where I was unsure of myself, my anxiety was elevated, and I couldn’t control my reactions to an emotion I felt. Taking part in the program seemed overwhelming but I decided to take the leap. Shelby Tate was there for me throughout the entire time and she consistently reminded me that as long as I’m doing the work, and continue to practice, it will get better...By the end of the program if I didn’t meditate at my normal scheduled time, I felt different. Through TSP I was able to instill practices in my daily routine that have improved my mental and physical being.”
