Shauna Dragomir, R-YFT, RYT

Shauna is a yoga instructor, YogaFaith 12-Step instructor, and YogaFaith Adaptive instructor (April 2019). Yoga had been taboo for Shauna growing up in a conservative Christian family. In 2016, the Lord had other plans for her and brought yoga to the forefront of her life where she embraced it as a form of spiritual comfort and a means to correct the physical and emotional havoc that 25 years in the corporate world had wreaked on her body and spirit. After a period of questioning whether she belonged in the yoga community, she found YogaFaith. In 2018, she completed her 200-hour teacher training with YogaFaith (R-YFT), is registered with Yoga Alliance (RYT 200) and the Christian Yoga Association (R-CYAT).

Shauna’s passion is to create sacred space of compassion, joy, peace, and wellness where everyone’s unique yoga journey is validated and free from judgment, to strengthen the whole person in body, mind, spirit, and soul. She holds a special place in her heart for the messy, as YogaFaith has strengthened and brought clarity to her own personal testimony and confirmed her mission to offer an avenue of hope and healing to those in need. God uses our hot messes for amazing purposes!

Shauna resides in the Central Coast of California with her husband and daughter, where she primarily teaches Adaptive Yoga for fuller bodies, Beginners Yoga, Gentle Yoga, Restorative Yoga, all aimed to create accessible and equitable space for students to build unshakable confidence and learn to live their truths in their God-given bodies without shame or apology.
