Shannon Mancini

Shannon Mancini is a true southern belle at heart, spending her first 22 years in the suburbs of Georgia, but now has the pleasure of residing in Laguna Niguel, California with her husband Mike. Shannon has been teaching Vinyasa Flow Yoga for over 3 years, but her journey started off completely different than where it is presently. When she moved here in 2007, a friend convinced her to try Bikram Yoga, and for a couple of years this suited her type-A personality of go further, push harder, do more. It wasn’t until she developed an injury where she had to step back and take a look at WHY she was spending 90 minutes in a 115 degree room at 50% humidity to only usually feel depleted and unfulfilled after?

Shannon has been teaching Vinyasa Flow Yoga for over 3 years, but her journey started off completely different than where it is presently. When she moved here in 2007, a friend convinced her to try Bikram Yoga, and for a couple of years this suited her type-A personality of go further, push harder, do more. It wasn’t until she developed an injury where she had to step back and take a look at WHY she was spending 90 minutes in a 115 degree room at 50% humidity to only usually feel depleted and unfulfilled after? After taking a well needed break, she returned to a different studio with a similar sequence, but the atmosphere was the total opposite of what she had been used to. At the end of her first class, she laid in savasana, and couldn’t help but cry because this was the feeling she was looking for all those years, just in the wrong place. It was through her connection to her breath that she discovered a completely different element to her yoga practice. Shannon truly believes that developing a harmonious connection with ones breath allows us to come into a state of being completely present, and it is in these moments where healing truly happens. She teaches her classes with a certain grace that supports the softer side we all are deeply desperate to expose. Her fascination with music and the ability it has to heal guides her to build playlists that support movement and openness as her students flow through class. Her goal as a teacher is to provide a space where students can come practice without judgment, expectation, or ego, but just from the heart, honoring whatever their souls have to offer that day.

Kelsey Lang

I began my yoga journey in the summer of 2011 and like a spark to light my inner fire a steady hot vinyasa practice lit me up. I was inspired to share what I found in myself with others through yoga. My aim as a teacher is to empower the people around me and in the community to live the life they love. My classes focus on breath and awareness either flowing through or relaxing into balanced and thoughtful sequences. I teach vinyasa, the 26 Bikram Hot Yoga postures, restorative, and yin yoga styles as well as meditation and Yoga Nidra. I am also Reiki II certified, trained in EFT, and host classes/workshops on Essential Oils. I am currently continuing my education as a Holistic Health Practitioner and massage...

“Being a group fitness instructor and Quality Life Coach I came to my yoga mat initially for the physical challenge but have been transformed/mystified/humbled by the emotional release and spiritual connection of yoga and am proud to announce that I’m walking the path and have eagerly taken my practice way beyond the mat”.


Carolyn Long ECP, Holistic Healer
“Stress is the number 1 cause of inflammation in our body and the root cause of so many diseases and cancers…Emergence Care Therapy can help permanently release this stress, toxic residue and inflammation”.


Resident within you is the Power, Creative Energy that creates and sustains all of existence. This Creative Energy animates and heals you. Emergence Care Therapy is a profound and revolutionary means of working with this subtle, yet powerful energy and your physical body in a non-invasive manner that allows this Creative Power to be more clearly and fully expressed in its effulgence…to emerge from within and guide you in your life.
Through the application of presence, Emergence Care Therapy cultivates the manifestation of this Power, and leads to the capacity for healing that has never before existed for you or humanity.
While this capacity remains buried beneath an avalanche of mounting stress, tension and pressure, it remains dormant and cannot be
developed. Emergence Care Therapy enables you to release tremendous amounts of stored stress and tension from your mind, body and life. Your ability to release this long held stress is deepened through repeated applications of EC Therapy. It often develops to the extent that a person can be experiencing extreme stress that pervades every facet of life, and have this stress all but eliminated in an EC Therapy session, leaving the recipient in a state of peace and gratitude.


Message me for a session at my home office or I can come to you!
Namaste

Deborah's enthusiasm for teaching comes through in her dynamic energy and creative flows that are designed to bring playfulness and challenge to all levels of practice...Always mindful of modifications, yoga meets you where you are..RIGHT NOW! Deborah brings her passion for sharing just how capable we all are when awareness is brought to the breath, intention is set for class and space for each pose is held...

just long enough for each individual to feel the connection to the pose within themselves, to gather information through self exploration and build TAPAS (endurance, inner, strength). It's an amazing connection. Deborah also emphasizes throughout practice the precepts of our yoga foundation, the 8 limbs. Setting the groundwork as a "yogini" to leave a better footprint, to be a good example, to care for the planet for the next generation and find compassion for self and others. It starts in the mind, calming the raging waters to ripples to smooth as glass. Right thoughts become right words, become right actions. It is a great start! Yoga is the fountain of youth! Smiling keeps the fountain flowing...:)
