I’m Shauna registered massage therapist and a certified yoga teacher. I have been a practicing Yoga since my late teens. Yoga has ben a solid pillar thru my endless journey of self discovery, and self awareness. During the past years, especially during my teacher training, I have become a true believer of the innate wisdom that our body’s hold. I’m continually amazed at the benefits of turning in, and tuning into our body’s and the immense psychological, and physiological affects it has on a person. I believe strongly that nature has a profound affect on us, and am in awe of the miraculous force and connection it has over all beings.
