Jim and Shelly Crowder are Certified Yoga Teachers in Howard County, Maryland. Both have had full time careers in commercial real estate over the last decade or so, but Jim recently left his brokerage position to focus solely on his two businesses, Workplace Wellness Solutions LLC, and CrowderYogaFitness.
Jim and Shelly are the embodiment of living a healthy lifestyle. They practice and teach yoga regularly, as well as doing gym workouts as well. Shelly is a bit of a fitness foodie, and she can often be found making up new protein shakes or green juice concoctions in her Vitamix.
Shelly is a former gymnast and aerobics instructor, and her high energy is balanced out by her meditation and yoga practice (she is also certified in Yin Yoga). Jim has been a bit of a gym rat since age 14, played multiple sports, and is an avid mountain biker. He has over 16 years’ experience as a personal trainer, and has taught over 300 yoga classes, about 1/3 of which include a 15 minute guided meditation at the conclusion.
In addition to teaching Yoga, Jim is also a certified personal trainer, and certified performance enhancement specialist. He takes his in depth knowledge of biomechanics to the yoga studio, where he takes great care in assuring that his students enter, hold, and release poses safely and effectively.
Jim and Shelly believe that life is about balance, and that most things are ok in moderation (including wine -red for Jim, white for Shelly!). They have been married since 2013, and have 5 exceptional children. Life may not begin in your 50’s, but it sure keeps getting better and better!
