Grounding, Compassionate, Playful
Shala is originally from Miami, Fl. Four years ago she moved to NYC to become an actress. While searching for inspiration to fuel her art she found love, compassion, and the ability to trust her intuition through yoga. When she took her first yoga class she felt closer to God, which made her feel closer to herself. She had tough times when first moving to New York and yoga kept her grounded. Becoming closer to herself lead her to become a birth doula. Supporting people through the journey of childbirth is definitely a blessing for her. Shala encourages expecting parents to trust their bodies, and feel empowered. In 2017, she completed her 200-hour yoga teacher training at Brooklyn Yoga Project. In her Vinyasa classes, she guides with compassion and breath, with a focus on the Chakras. Yoga is more than the Asanas. Yoga is a community, an unconditional love for yourself, it's the light when you are surrounded by darkness, Yoga is love.
