Shannon Liebel

Teacher

Shannon started her career path as a Clinical Counselor after she received her MA in 2008. During her MA program, she was the team director of a competitive gymnastics program. In her youth, Shannon trained in artistic and acrobatic gymnastics. When she discovered yoga in 2005, it was the perfect balance of the mental work she enjoyed in Psychology and the physical movement of the body that she loved in gymnastics. Shannon completed her 200 Hour Teacher Training with Yax Yoga Concepts in Virginia Beach, VA in 2013 and has been teaching ever since. She received her 300 Hour Teacher Training with Beyond Bryce in Koh Samui, Thailand in 2018. Her teachers during her 300 hour training included Dice Iida-Klein, Briohny Smith, Honza Lafond, Claudine Lafond, and Mathieu Boldron. She strongly believes in the connection between mind, body, and soul, and this reflects in her Vinyasa style teaching. She loves the constant movement of the body in Vinyasa and feels that it helps us to find strength within and bring awareness into the present moment. Although arm balances and inversions are offered in her classes, modifications are always provided to make practitioners of every level comfortable during their practice.

Christa Smith

Teacher

Christa Smith is a lifestyle coach with a desire to help busy people achieve their health and fitness goals.

Though her full-time profession is in television and film production, she’s always had a passion for fitness. In 2012 she received her 200-hour yoga instructor certification, and has taught traditional Vinyasa yoga, Yoga sculpt, Cycling and Barre.

As most women Christa found herself at her heaviest weight after the birth of her son. It took her nearly 5 years, but on her 30th birthday she finally decided to refocus on herself and her fitness journey. She began to get involved with online fitness accountability groups and started to see results quickly.

She realized she could take her various experiences, both failures and successes, and pay them forward. By combining a balanced diet, Yoga, HIIT and cardio she believes people can obtain their healthiest physical body.

However, Christa doesn’t solely believe that a physical change is enough to reach and maintain a healthy lifestyle. She encourages individuals to find their "tribe" as well. Christa achieved her best fitness results after participating in an online challenge group. Since then she's hosted and facilitated many of her own.


By refocusing her mindset Christa has been able to shift her life towards a more positive and uplifting state of being. Through her work as a lifestyle coach she hopes to help others do the same for others.

Betsy Laban

Teacher

From Betsy, "A diagnosis of fibromyalgia gave me the incentive to come to yoga to help heal my body, mind and spirit. I was certified by my Guru through the Sajni Yoga Center in Bangalore, India. Other blessings along the way include co-founding Gita Yoga Learning Center where I have trained and certified several 200 and 500 hour yoga instructors, and provide continuing education units through Yoga Alliance. I was able to study with Dr. Larry Payne with whom I continued my education in POLY (Prime of Life Yoga) obtaining my POLY500 through SAMATA/LMU. I received my certification in Yoga Nidra with Dr. Marc Halpern (California College of Ayurveda) and most recently acquired my certification in Back Care Yoga (Vista Yoga Academy). My own body and health issues showed me that not only was I going to heal myself but that it was my Dharma to help others do the same. There is no greater joy than watching people leave our time together, with happy faces and lighter hearts. With that in mind I followed my calling even further obtaining my Reiki Master certification leading me to the world of energy healing.

I have been given the opportunity to study with some of the most amazing teachers. I have gathered wisdom from the masters to the ones who are not as well known. There is nothing quite as lovely as sharing everything they have given me to help others heal their bodies, their minds, their spirit by showing them the joys of finding and living their truth.It is a blessing to serve and to be a part of a community of loving, caring healers."

Arvindjeet Kaur and Dru Ali of Kintamani Moon

Teacher & Musician

Arvindjeet Kaur and Dru Ali come together as Kintamani Moon, a compassionate sound healing project, serving and co-creating with community earth by sharing natural wellness modalities such as Breathwork, Movement, Meditation, Kundalini Yoga & Universal Energy Healing, combined with nurturing sound frequencies to elevate the well-being of all.

Arvindjeet Kaur: Healing trauma, depression, anxiety and stress has been one of her biggest themes since childhood. Her conscious journey of self healing began in 2006 where she experienced an awakening which sparked her interest on going inward with intention to get to the root of what was causing an imbalance of her mind body and spirit. Weeks after her awakening, she was introduced to Universal Energy Healing which opened her up to various forms of holistic healing modalities in which she later on received formal training in, such as Reiki, Shamanic Healing, Kundalini Yoga and Sound Healing. Her intention is to share to tools elevate the wellbeing of all and co-create a safe space for community to gather, connect, learn, grow and be.

Dru Ali (DJ Hyphen Select): Known for his experimental instrumental production & atmospheric genre-bending mixes. Seeing past musical boundaries, he combines all styles of music, including hip hop, soul, drum & bass, dub, world, ambient and beyond. Using every environment as inspiration to interpret life through sound, his music mirrors his surroundings, giving him the space to come alive as an audio storyteller. He also intuitively creates guided soundtracks during yoga & meditation classes, to help practitioners voyage deeper into their journey of inner transformation. His latest curiosity has been experimenting with a device which senses the electrical conductivity of plants and translates the data into cosmic soundscapes. From yoga studios to music festivals, you can find him forever exploring the endless possibilities of sound.
