Shawni has been studying, practicing and teaching yoga for over 20 years. Her journey began in India, when she went on a spiritual voyage in 2001. She was initiated into the Sri Vidya tradition, the Tantrik lineage of the Masters of the Himalayas, by her former teacher, Yogarupa Rod Stryker with whom she studied for over 11 years.
She has also studied and practiced many different styles of yoga such as Ashtanga, Iyengar, Sivananda, Vikram, Kundalini; and with many different teachers throughout the years, always following her curiosity and those who inspire her to learn from. Her intention for practicing was always rooted in spiritual awakening and in 2018 she gravitated to her latest and current teacher of Zen Buddhism, Adyashanti.
Shawni is a spiritual guide, a Life & Meditation mentor (theradiantbeing.com) and offers sound meditations, bridging her love for music, spirituality and healing. She has a deep love for mantras, bathing daily in sacred sounds, meditation, singing, nature and silence, although silence is hard to find with two kids these days.
As a mom Shawni continues to learn the art of integrating her spirituality into every moment of her life, anchoring deeper into presence.
“My heartfelt passion is to help my students move into the fullness of themselves, to identify what holds them back and to help them heal, to open up to the beauty of life and to move through their lives with power, clarity and an open heart.
I am a very curious soul, I never stop studying, reading and practicing. I have dipped my toes into Reiki, Shamanism, and many healing modalities. I am also a DJ, I have extensive musical releases and a mantra album soon to be released. I look forward to meeting you on my path.”
