Shanea Janes RYT

Shanea began her yoga journey by developing a home practice as a means to cope with personal trauma and develop a connection with her body. After a couple years of steady at home practice Shanea felt a strong pull to become certified to teach yoga as a means to help others go within to heal themselves as she had done. She completed her 200hr teacher training at LifeTime Fitness in Des Moines in the spring of 2018 which granted her the experience to teach many types of classes. Shanea’s classes encourage students to develop a strong sense of connection within to leave the mat with a feeling of lightness.

Shanea Janes RYT instructs the following:
  • Restorative Yoga
  • Restorative yoga offers an opportunity for the body to remember stillness. With the physical body supported using blocks, straps, bolsters and blankets the mind slows and we reconnect with our true nature of relaxation. The practice often includes gentle breath work, sound vibration, guided imagery, and mudra.  

  • Noon Express Flow Yoga
  • Schedule a midday break to reset the breath and stretch the body. 45 minutes of asana flow and attention to the breath to balance your day.

  • Yin Yoga
  • Yin and yang are opposite and complementary principles in nature. While yang is the changing, moving, revealing aspects of nature, yin is the stable, unmoving, hidden aspect of life. Trauma can become deeply embedded in the body within connective tissue. Yin yoga utilizes low to the earth asana held for 3-5 minutes to allow softening of fascia and release of blockages within energy meridians. A yin practice balances the internal organs resulting in improved flow of prana, reduced stress/anxiety, and increased joint mobility.

  • Mixed Level Yoga
  • A moderately paced class appropriate for beginner through intermediate students. Our mixed level class incorporates fluid movement as well as attention to alignment and breathing. Modifications permit each student to customize the practice according to their needs.
