Shanti’s yoga journey began in 1996 as a way to enhance her skydiving endeavors. She began her 1000 hours of teacher training at the Shoshoni Yoga Retreat in 1998. She has completed teacher trainings with amazing Power/Vinyasa teachers such as Shiva Rhea, Baron Baptiste, and Bryan Kest. She also has a Baptiste teacher assistant and Thai yoga massage training. She continues her training in all aspects of yoga by attending conferences and workshops around the US. 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. She invites you to challenge yourself to your full potential while staying conscious, calm, and aware of your needs at the moment. Her classes are filled with vitality, honesty, empowerment, and possibility. Shanti lives and loves with her husband Dan in southern Oregon.
