About the Event

This workshop theme is AHIMSA (non-violence). 

Together, we will look closely at how our individual yoga practices contribute to the HARMING and NON-HARMING of self and others. 

We will:

1. Discuss the yoga philosophy of AHIMSA and how it relates to social justice.

2. Learn tools to embody AHIMSA both on and off the mat, including:

  • Breathing exercises to navigate conflicts and stress
  • Non-Violent Communication (NVC) (NVC is a powerful tool for courageous and compassionate conversations and was developed by Marshall Rosenberg.)
  • Immediate ways to practice AHIMSA daily

3. Create personal action plans to cultivate AHIMSA in each of our lives

Pre-work will require reading two short articles on the topics to be explored. 

The articles will be emailed after registration.

For class, please have a journal, writing utensil, and if you like, the pre-work articles (for reference). The workshop will include meditation, so please have whatever props you like to enjoy a comfortable posture.

The Zoom workshop will open 5 min prior to the class start time.

Students will not be admitted late due to the nature of the workshop's content.

Shayna is one of those teachers who's THERE, by your side, coaching you, guiding you, pushing you, and cheering you on. She is compassionate and discerning. Utterly herself, and the best role model you could ask for as an artist, yogi, or human. I have experienced unparalleled growth in Shayna's classroom because I feel safe to make mistakes, to make a mess, and ultimately to make magic.


Shayna is the best. The best teachers honor the legacy of yoga as a style of living, and also honor the fact that ultimately each student must learn on their own terms, through their own practice.  That's Shayna. Shayna gives you just enough teaching and inspiration to reach that deeper peace, without any sense or pretense of “supposed to” – it’s real and invigorating.


Shayna is the embodiment of an inspired spirit and through her authentic approach, she truly inspires the spirits of her students.  Shayna invites her students to show up, be vulnerable, adopt a lightness of heart, and enjoy the dance of yoga.  Students are always offered the opportunity to delve deep by way of a creativity and a sparkle that is Shayna's signature style.
