Shanti’s yoga journey began in 1996 as a way to enhance her skydiving endeavors.  She began her 2000 hours of yoga & mind body training in 1998 at the Shoshoni Yoga Retreat in Nederland, Colorado.  She has completed teacher trainings with Power and Vinyasa yoga masters Shiva Rea, Baron Baptiste, and Bryan Kest.  Shanti has completed her 1st module of Yoga Therapist training at the Purna College of Yoga and Integrated Movement Therapy for Adults at Samarya Center.  Shanti has a level I & II Watsu certification, group fitness certifications with Mossa in Centergy and Group Active, as well as Aquatics exercise training with Pauline Iven.  The latest endeavor is Aerial Yoga Play with an intermediate instructor certification.  Shanti believes we just have to find what works for us whether it be land, water or air the benefits are numerous.  Shanti has a no nonsense approach to her practice and teaching, she encourages students to go to their personal edge sensitively, while honoring their strengths and boundaries.  It is about wellness afterall.
