Shayna Hiller is an author, yoga teacher and certified Health Coach based in Venice Beach, California. She is the author of ‘Don’t Judge Me By My Cover‘. Her approach goes beyond simple nutritional coaching to reveal the root causes of various health concerns and emotional eating. 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, humorous and deeply intuitive approach to healing is truly one of a kind.
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 conditioning. Those years in committed recovery from her own personal trauma ignite her purpose to guide and empower others to similarly heal themselves 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 living accessible, easy, inspiring and fun.
