My name is Bree. I am a gentle flow/restorative teacher who implements slowness into our community practices. It is the upmost importance to me to provide a safe and healing class where you can check out and tune into your body’s physical and emotional needs. I believe taking the time to incorporate conscious breathing with slow movements allows ourselves to surrender to the present moment leaving us in a state of gratitude. Namaste.
Sound Alchemist, Usui Reiki Practitioner, meditation guide and Crystal Healer. After completing her Associates in science in respiratory therapy, Fernanda transitioned to a more holistic approach to healing. Her journey started a lot like many of yours... Fernanda began feeling called to pursue her intuition and felt a great calling to crystals, even though she didn’t have a lot of knowledge about them. This didn’t deter Fernanda, and she began investing time tuning into her intuition and learning how crystals could aid her spiritual growth. Fernanda noticed that she had a growing calling to heal herself and share her knowledge with others to help with their healing journey. Fernanda then moved into buying crystal chips to create intention candles. This is what started Fernanda’s journey, as she began to source more crystals and spiritual healing objects following her intuition alone. Fernanda knew her own journey could resonate with many others, and decided to trust the Universe and the path that it was showing her. She followed by getting a reiki certification 1 and 2, following by finding Yoga with Shawna where she became a Sound Healer and meditation teacher. Fernanda loves helping the community to grow in their intuition and is passionate about helping others through ancient wisdom modalities such as reiki, crystal healing, meditation and sound healing sessions. She has been practicing in the studio and in her own practice since 01/2023. Fernanda empowers others to follow their instinct and embark on their spiritual healing journey every single day. On your journey to self-repair, she will guide you to connect with your self, while embracing spirituality, balance, and self love. You will feel empowered to let go of crippling past emotions, deepen your heart and soul connection, and live a richer, more fulfilling, and healthy life. It’s this authentically true love and passion for her intention to educate and empower men and women to heal themselves

Yadira shares... "I started a beautiful journey of self-healing in 2015 that then led me to the beautiful and abundant practice of Yoga and Meditation. Through my practice of yoga, I have experienced spiritual and emotional healing that I’ve graciously welcomed into my life. This glorious experience led me in becoming a certified Yin Yoga and Breathwork instructor with Shawna. I believe that there is a Yin and Yang aspect to our lives that desires to find balance, guiding us to feel more aligned with our mind, body and Soul. When we allow ourselves to feel and experience this interpersonal alignment, we are able to create meaningful changes in our lives, along with healthier habits for sustainable change. I believe that Yin yoga practice will allow you to find a deep inner meaning connection within yourself that could lead to healing of your body. I am honored and happy to be part of your practice and healing journey."
