Shawna began her yoga journey in 2005, while searching for something to balance out the stress and physical demands of her new career. It wasn’t until she spent 18 months traveling through the Pacific & Asia that she tried hot yoga for the first time in New Zealand.
When Modo Yoga Milton opened, Shawna started off as an energy exchanger and soon began teaching Kids Yoga. After noting all the positive effects her practice had in her life, she decided to take the leap and complete the Modo Teacher Training in Toronto in July 2010. She has also trained in Yin Yoga with Mark Laham and Louise Sattler in Ottawa.
Shawna loves sharing the joys she has experienced through practicing yoga. She encourages her students to work towards a calm and centered life, while enjoying the physical benefits of the practice. Her favourite thing about yoga is that no matter what life throws at you, it is always there waiting for you to find your mat again.
