Shayna began her Yoga journey in 2011 with a desire for a quiet place to escape the mind after spending over a decade in the restaurant industry. After moving to Washington DC, a friend suggested she'd try Yoga, and she was instantly hooked! The practice allows her to break free from the anxiety of everyday life, and silence the constant thoughts racing from a busy industry. Eager to continue her journey, Shayna jumped into her 200-hour teacher training in 2014. In 2018, Shayna completed her 500-hour teacher training with her thesis topic on "The Business of Yoga". Shayna loves helping students and teachers alike as they further their journey into Yoga.

Reviews

This was an amazing weekend. The B and B was lovely...the owners were so sweet and accommodating. The food was outstanding...both breakfast and afternoon “snack.” Everything was well organized with freedom to opt in/out of activities. The wine tasting was great...3 very different wineries. And the yoga was perfect. We made some new friends, and can’t wait to do this again!
