Shakira began her wellness journey during her undergraduate career, then fully embodied a practice in 2013 while working as a Licensed Massage and Bodywork Therapist. Her bodywork focuses on extending the practice of music for musicians and vocalists, and her yoga classes are rooted in an earthy, westernized movement and meditation practice. She also practices as a Certified Aerial Yoga Instructor and enjoys aerial dance in her free time.
Shakira is completing the 500HR Skill in Action YTT to connect and embody social justice in her active healing offerings which already include combining music and movement. She loves the magic of music and its influence of watery dances through the body, and shares a story of self preservation through compassion, self love and a commitment to embracing transformation. Her students describe her classes as fun, challenging, mindful and connects to earthy elements. While massage clients describe her work as healing, relaxing and intuitive.
