Shawn has been teaching yoga for over 30 years, offering prenatal yoga, mother-baby yoga, couples yoga for labor, children yoga, and adult yoga classes. She is a skilled and trained birth doula, postpartum doula, and lactation consultant.

Shawn is interested in re-awakening the connection to sacredness in ordinary daily living. She creates a space for her clients to develop and explore this connection and provides them with skillful means to continue this inquiry on their own, whether practicing yoga, raising a family or exploring their role in the collective unfolding of life.

Natalia Romano

HHP, CMT, & Yoga Teacher

My passion for studying the human body and holistic approaches to healing have merged in a beautiful way. These life long studies have helped me to understand the interconnectedness of energy and emotions and how they interact with the physical body. The many layers of the body including mind, spirit and subtle energies are woven into our relationship to physical and spiritual health. I believe that just like the tides of the ocean our health can also ebb and flow, and as we change and grow our body, mind and soul can thrive with support. The experiences that I've had with Bodywork, Yoga, and Reiki in my own personal healing journey have transformed physical, emotional, and energetic blocks. This self healing journey awoke my deep calling to assist and hold space for others.

Dmitry Vulfovich LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist 

Healing holistically means following the guidance from the body back into a state of wholeness. I believe that symptoms are not something to go to war with or get rid of, but rather they can be a compass to track where there is emotional pain. I use a mixture of mindfulness, conscious movement, body-orientation and gestalt process therapy to help you heal yourself.
