About Me

Hi I’m Shay! I started my yoga journey approximately 12 years ago. At first I was completely focused on the physical benefits of Yoga, basically I was hoping to get ripped, spoiler alert… it didn’t happen, but that didn’t matter. It wasn’t until about 3 years ago that I started to discover the mindful benefits of Yoga. It has definitely gotten me through some challenging times in my own life for which I am so grateful. I am a full time Registered Nurse in Oncology. Over the past year, I have been having more discussions with patients about mindfulness and truly discovered how many benefit from their Yoga practice in a variety of ways. Through hearing this and through my own experiences with Yoga improving my own mindset and body image, I knew this was something I had to start to share with others. That is what led me to complete my Yoga Teacher Training.
The Yoga Teacher Training was one of my most challenging achievements to date. It helped me to discover so much about myself including highlighting my strengths, energy and all that I have to share with others. This newfound information has inspired me to teach others. I have started an informal Sip and Sweat program with friends to keep this energy (and wine) flowing. I have already been able to share my practice with those who have been too intimidated to attend formal classes. My hope is to teach in a more formal setting and continue to encourage newbies and others to attend regardless of their past Yoga experiences.
My primary focus is Flow, although I do love Fire. I would intend to teach to a faster paced flow including challenging postures with dynamic transitions. I want others to be able to challenge their expression and keep them guessing as to what is coming next!
