Certified Yoga Teacher (RYT® 200) & 200 Hour YTT Teacher & Travel Staff Member
Shea was born and raised in Wild and Wonderful West Virginia. After receiving her bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts in 1997, she followed the setting sun westward to Flagstaff, Arizona to pursue her career as a full time artist.
In 2002, she moved back to WV and received a master’s degree in Art Education. She has been living in Fayetteville, WV for the past 17 years teaching art, growing her art business, Second Nature Fine Art, working as a whitewater river guide on the New and Gauley Rivers and raising her two beautiful boys, Keller and Nash.
After a tailbone injury during childbirth in 2011, Shea turned to yoga for therapy from her friend and yoga teacher, Randy Boyd. Randy introduced Shea to a new school of yoga called Ashaya. This alignment based yoga practice provided the perfect balance between helping to heal her chronic pain and focusing on uplifting heart virtues that provided spiritual awakening and growth that has forever changed her life.
Shea completed her 200 hour Ashaya Yoga Teacher Certification through her mentor, Randy Boyd. Teaching yoga has quickly become a passion for Shea. After several years of soul searching, she has found the perfect balance of family, art, whitewater and yoga.
