Shawna has been practicing yoga for over 10 years now, but has connected with the yoga mentality for most of her life. As a result of a continuous physical yoga practice she feels more in tune with her body as well as an overall sense of peace and well-being. She has been the studio director since 2005 and has been the heart and soul of The Yoga Room operations. She currently teaches private and semi-private sessions upon request. Shawna has completed courses and specialty trainings in Pre-Natal, Yin Yoga and Inversion workshops.
In 2012, Shawna completed 200hr RYT program and became yoga alliance certified. That same year she traveled to Bulgaria and was featured in Udaya Power Yoga Films with Rudy Mettia. In 2014 she and Daniel completed a 60hr advanced power yoga training with Bryan Kest. These days she spends most of her time with her and Daniel’s two young children.
She continues to expand her knowledge in yoga by dedicating herself to the way of life. Her experience in this vast subject matter shows through her personal practice, she truly enjoys being a student and believes there is something to be learned from each and every class that she partakes in. “When like minded people gather and share in such a challenging yet mindful practice the world becomes a sweeter place.” Shawna loves to see others advance in their practice and always finds herself immersed in motivation when in the midst of group synergy. She enjoys answering questions and assisting students with postures.
Although Shawna consistently practices with her husband Daniel in their studio she also adores many other instructors including: Bryan
Kest, Erika Burkhalter, Nora Mangiamele and Kathryn Budig.
Shawna is available for private lessons. Call studio for booking times.
