About Shanti la

Shanti Hauptmann discovered her love, passion, and dedication for the art of yoga from a strong internal desire to become empowered in her own body. The constant back pain from muscle injury was a great motivation to find a method to alchemize the imbalance within the physical body and the energy body in healing. Yoga offers Shanti the perfect balance of just that. Shanti is an E-RYT 200hr certified yoga instructor, trained in the Anusara method of the Universal Principals of Alignment via the ways of the heart. Always a student, Shanti deepens her knowledge with inspirations: Elena Brower, Sianna Sherman, Tara Glazier, Ashleigh Sergeant, Ally Bogard, Kenny Graham to name a few. Shanti’s spirited nature has cultivated top-tier teaching opportunities in NYC, Mexico, Costa Rica, Brazil, Napa Valley and most recently Miami. In her work, Shanti takes you on a journey, an exploration of the daily dance between our internal and external landscapes via the pathway of the contemporary yoga arts.
