Shauna is a self-proclaimed nerd, hip-hop head, jock, and yogi. After playing sports throughout her childhood, she segued into the fitness and yoga world just as she started her academic path at Stanford University and hasn’t stopped since. Simultaneously pursuing academics and fitness, Shauna taught a wide range of classes including step, hi/lo aerobics, Pi/Yo, indoor and outdoor boot camps, mat Pilates, Hip Hop Cycle™ (which she owns), core, yoga and aerial yoga all while completing her undergraduate and multiple graduate degrees. This included teaching in the Bay Area, Los Angeles, Baltimore and even in Costa Rica and the Dominican Republic. Shortly after finishing her PhD in Public Health from Johns Hopkins University, Shauna also secured a sponsorship with Under Armour®, a major brand in sports and fitness, proving that should could excel in both worlds.
Today Shauna continues to teach classes across the Bay Area that use her varied background to fuse styles, philosophies and principles into strong, athletic, and fluid classes set to bold (usually hip hop and R&B) beats. She also continues to partner with Under Armour®, consult on various projects in public health and build her own personal (evolving) brand fusing her academic and athletic interests. As a perpetual student and teacher, Shauna is always looking for new things to try and new ways to intellectually and physically challenge herself and others.
