Your Yoga Instructor

The ultimate goal of yoga is to always observe things accurately and therefore never act in a way that makes us regret our actions later.

–The Heart of Yoga by T.K.V. Desikachar

Shani McPherson

My professional background is in marketing and communications. I have a Bachelor’s in Communications and Marketing and a Master’s in Journalism.

But my passion is yoga.

Yoga found me nearly 15 years ago on a search for alternative ways to deal with my fast-paced lifestyle of back-to back meetings, daily commutes, and networking events. I was overextended with happy-hours, sorority business and long work hours. The stress led to a series of panic attacks and doctor-prescribed medication. Yoga connected me to my breath and meditation and the panic attacks stopped on their own.

Today my yoga journey is about sharing this experience with others. I especially enjoy bringing the joy of yoga to underserved and underrepresented populations in Baltimore and have been fortunate enough to extend my teaching offering abroad in Jamaica.

As a recent transplant to San Diego, I look forward to sharing my offerings in the area.

My beginner-friendly classes incorporate a vinyasa flow with intermediate options. It’s for those who are unsure of yoga, but desire its benefits.

As a certified and registered yoga teacher, I hope to help others connect for the first time or come back to their breath. I have over 200 hours of training and have taught classes in person and remote.
