Wellness Services:​

  • Accessible Yoga

  • Trauma Conscious Yoga

Shanna Small, a seasoned yoga educator, has devoted over two decades to promoting social justice and accessibility in yoga spaces. Initially immersed in Ashtanga Yoga, she holds a 200-hour Yoga Alliance accreditation and 500ERYT and YACEP status. A pivotal sacrum and spine injury and the tragic murder of George Floyd catalyzed her shift toward Accessible Yoga and Trauma Conscious Yoga. Specializing in these areas under mentors like Dianne Bondy and Nityda Gessell, Shanna initiated Yoga Teacher Training programs and social justice initiatives, drawing from her experiences as a racialized woman in the yoga community. Inspired by Vedic studies with Kaya Mindlin and Shantala Sriramiah, she now shares her extensive knowledge through travel, offering teachings on accessibility, social justice, and yoga philosophy, both in-person and online. Beyond her role as a yoga educator, Shanna Small is a fervent advocate for building a more inclusive and mindful yoga community, empowering others on transformative journeys.
