Shawna is a native Oregonian and self-labeled "yoga junkie" from the first moment she rolled out a mat at age 18. As a passionate snowboarder, Shawna found that yoga brought strength, clarity, and joy to her life not only on her mat, but on the mountain, and in her heart. She knew she wanted to share that love with others. In 2009 Shawna discovered Baptiste Power Yoga and was immediately drawn to the connection she felt between body and spirit. In 2010 she completed YogaFit Vinyasa Level 1 training and began teaching yoga. In 2012 she received her 200RYT certification through Namaspa, and left her career in construction administration to live her happiness by sharing her passion for yoga with others. Shawna has advanced her training with international yoga teachers such as Baron Baptiste, Kathryn Budig, Sean Corn, and Judith Lasater. She has also studies Ayurvedic therapy, kinesiology, and is a Snowboard Instructor and Massage Therapist. When she's not in the studio, Shawna can be found outdoors hiking, camping, and having adventures with her 7 year old daughter, carving turns on the mountain, or practicing yoga on her stand-up paddleboard.
