E-RYT 200, YACEP - Teaching Yoga for almost 15 years, and dancing since the age of 2, Shawna holds a B.S. in Dance(Ball State University, '02). Shawna never thought she would be teaching anything because she tried teaching dance in high school and felt so awkward in the teachers roll. However, as dance in college brought her guest artist who was teaching yoga to the dance company, Shawna soon began to feel what she could offer thru the teachings of yoga. Her life's goal as a young tween was a big, open dream to, "help others create happy, healthy, confident lives." So, after moving to NYC('02), and really starting her yoga practice, Shawna felt she had finally found her vehicle to live out her life's goal...Shawna's first 200 Hr Eclectic Hatha Yoga certification happened thru Yandara Yoga Institute, 2004, living in a tent in Mexico for a month. She now has completed the Karma Kids Yoga teacher training, a second 200 Hr. Teacher Training thru Prana Yoga(Jeff Migdow, MD and Robyn Ross/Priti), Lotus Palm Thai Yoga Massage certification(NYC), Lanna Thai Yoga certification(Thailand), is Reiki attuned(Fumi), and Pre-natal Yoga certified. In 2012, Shawna became a Coaching for Transformation trained Life Coach(NYC). Throughout her many years in NY, she has also been blessed to become a wife and a mother! Whether it is Yoga, Thai Yoga Bodywork, Life Coaching, or Reiki, Shawna offers a firm foundation for personal transformation thru all her vehicles of service for you.
