Sheray began her yoga journey in January 2013 while traveling throughout Costa Rica. Her time exploring ended up being the beginning of a transformational energy shift. She quickly realized the uplifting emotional benefits that yoga created in her mind as well as the stability being harnessed in her physical body. Yoga has since become the guiding force to her living a more simple, peaceful, and grounded life. She feels her true purpose in life is sharing the gifts that yoga has to offer. She designs each class with creativity and care to help support you in your inner journey. Her classes are a safe space for you to dive deeper into your practice; to feel calm, centered, strong, and free.
