The Shiney Studios was born from a desire to offer Yoga as a healing art to our community. Our mission statement includes "the art of Healthy Living", and our experience has taught us that health and wellness is unique to every person. It was also our deep desire to offer a platform for artists and wellness practitioners to acknowledge their powerful impact on mindful and healthy living. So......the concept of The Shiney Studios Yoga AND Wellness Center was born. It is my firm belief that there is no "absolute" formulas for wellness, and that it takes a combination that is ever changing, because we are EVER changing. We recognize crucial ingredients for healthy living as: art, music, yoga, laughter, meditation, animal companions, being present, emotional safety, massage, grace, pranayama (breathing) wholesome nutrition, water, accupuncture, love, spirituality, kindness and compassion.

Part of our gift has been our building~ We have been graced with a historic building~ our sanctuary, and yours too!! With our intention to restore the building and have restored spaces for "wellness", artists, and practitioners. We now have our Wellness Center! A dear friend of mine reminds me, to "Hold The Vision, and Trust the Process" and we did! It is with the greatest gratitude that we announce the opening of our Wellness Center!! We now have two massage therapists residing at The Shiney Studios. Thank You for being open, for being present, and for being beauty*FULL!

Good Morning~ Early morning Vinyasa we go! Lean into it, be present, and feel every nuance~ apply these to not just to your yoga this morning, but your entire life!!
“Spirituality emerged as a fundamental guidepost in Wholeheartedness. Not religiosity but the deeply held belief that we are inextricably connected to one another by a force greater than ourselves--a force grounded in love and compassion. For some of us that's God, for others it's nature, art, or even human soulfulness. I believe that owning our worthiness is the act of acknowledging that we are sacred. Perhaps embracing vulnerability and overcoming numbing is ultimately about the care and feeding of our spirits.”
― Brené Brown, Daring Greatly: How the Courage to Be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent, and Lead
