Countdown Expired!
This monthly session was created so I could share with you techniques to rebalance your nervous system and tips on sleep hygiene.  Combined these tools will improve your ability to both fall asleep and stay asleep. 

How this session can help you

Reverse Aging

Do you feel that your body is aging too fast? Do you suffer from tight hips, a stiff neck, a painful lower back, or restricted shoulder movements? 

In this class we passively stretch the body using props such as bolsters & blocks helping you regain lost mobility so you feel less locked up in your body and a younger version of you!

Social Interaction

At the end of this session you have the opportunity to hang back for a cup of sleep inducing tea, a slice of cake and a natter with Shirlí and your fellow classmates.

This provides a great opportunity to ask Shirlí any questions you may have, to flick through books that Shirlí recommends to understand and improve your sleep and also a little time to connect to others with similar interests.

Improved Posture

Did your body posture influences your nervous system and your nervous system plays a huge role in your ability to switch off, fall asleep and stay asleep.

In this masterclass Shirlí will teach you the body positions that affect your nervous system both positively and negatively and you will learn a 15 minute stretching routine to implement before bed.

Reduced Stress

Stress and our ability to reduce it is a major player when it comes to deep, restful sleep.

In this masterclass you will learn mindfulness and meditation techniques to help reduce your stress, anxiety and sense of overwhelm. We will also explore the significance of gratitude and journaling to help slow down your over thinking mind.

Improved Sleep

All of the techniques we practice in this session have a down-regulating effect on the nervous system. Meaning it brings it out of 'fight/flight' mode and into 'rest/repair'

As we release tension from both the physical body and the mind, the nervous system begins to relax, this then places us into a down regulated state ideal for sleep!

Improved Quality of Life

When we improve the quality of our sleep, it dramatically impacts all other areas of our lives.

It helps you maintain a healthy weight, keeps your immune system strong, improves your mood and focus, keeps your heart healthy, reduces your stress levels and improves your emotional and mental wellbeing.


I have been practicing yoga since 2009 and qualified as a teacher  in 2012.  I had a serious car accident in 2013 where I suffered a brain haemorrhage and broke C5 in my neck.  This accident and my subsequent recovery was my catalyst for seeking and learning all types of healing modalities. 

I have a deep interest in all things connected to our well-being and a keen interest in stress management, brain health, sleep and fertility support. 

I am qualified in many forms of yoga along with mindfulness, meditation, stress management and I am a certified Breath coach.

I teach online through zoom, I run workshops monthly and retreats 2-3 times per year. I’m easy to find on social media @vitalityvibe. I would love to see you in class some day and

I hope my experience and knowledge helps you advance toward your mind-body fitness goals.

Shirli took on a group from PTSB and I can only describe the overall experience as phenomenal. The benefits were felt from day 1 of the 6 week program. The sessions were both fun and beneficial. Every participant raved about it and were all in better form from day 1. Cannot recommend Shirli any higher than saying we will be all reconnecting for a further program. 10 out of 10.

Thank you so much Shirli for the classes at HITtheWALL 2022. All Swimmers left the classes with more knowledge of how to maintain injury free when swimming longer distances, swimmers just felt so relaxed and energised for the swims over the weekend. You are very attentive and intuitive teacher, great at adapts every pose to work for every swimmer in the room. I just really love the way (and the what) you teach can’t wait to have you at HITtheWALL 2023. Thank you - classes were just perfect. 😘

Having been accustomed to live yoga classes I never imagined it any other way. Along came lockdown and Zoom yoga classes were a lifeline both for the yoga content and the banter with Shirli and the group. Then Vitality Vibe arrived and I thought initially that it wouldn’t be for me. I doubted my own motivation to use the site and if I did it would be a “robotic” process! But, knowing I could cancel at any time, I took up membership and joined a whole new world....... Yoga classes recorded from live classes (some of which I had attended) so nothing “robotic” about them. Shirli’s teaching is so natural and easy to follow, with options for all abilities and the banter is still there! The options for doing my practice are varied. I can choose the length of time I want to spend and choose the areas I want to work on (all clearly laid out). I also like to walk and I have used the site for short (18 mins) sessions to loosen up before a long hill walk. Yoga, with all its options, is only a part of what is available from Vitality Vibe. There’s an entire medical cabinet waiting to be discovered.
