Shayna Hiller is a yoga teacher and certified Health Coach based in Venice Beach, California. She is the author of ‘Don’t Judge Me By My Cover‘.  Travel nomad turned Health and Business Coach, her intuitive spiritual guidance coupled with over a decade of professional training offers her clients a comprehensive holistic method for reclaiming optimal health. Some refer to Shayna as a ‘modern mystic’. Her approach reaches beyond mainstream coaching to reveal and forgive the root causes of various health and life concerns including emotional eating, anxiety, depression, relationships and career. She has the acute intelligence and articulation to discuss complex topics related to health, which is why many people benefit from her teachings. Her light-hearted, authentic approach to personal development and wellness is truly one of a kind. Shayna believes in consciously uniting the material and spiritual worlds in order to help people discover their inherent wisdom and purpose in this life.

Years of mindless eating led to years of strict dieting which led to a severely challenging relationship with food, body image and self-acceptance. Extensive training in multiple styles of yoga and meditation eventually lead Shayna to personal transformation and self-love. Through these ancient healing arts, she was able to navigate her subconscious mind and break free from self-sabotaging habits and old conditionings that were holding her back from realizing her potential. Those years in committed recovery from her own personal trauma ignite her purpose to guide and empower others to similarly reclaim their health and transform their lives.

Shayna has been leading unique wellness retreats around the world for over a decade. She is a certified 500 hour Yoga Alliance Certified Yoga Teacher and Integrative Nutrition Health Coach. She is originally from New Jersey, but lived and learned in the jungles of Costa Rica for five years of her early adult life. This is where she experienced her most significant healing and personal transformation.

It is both Shayna’s passion and privilege to share her wisdom and methods to make healthy vibrant living accessible, easy, inspiring and fun.
