“Gloria is not only one of my favorite yoga instructor, she is one of my favorite people. There are people that move through your life that touch your heart and she is one of them. She has a sincere love for others, and joy that comes through each of her classes that is tempered with a quirky sense of humor and an understanding of what our minds and bodies are capable of. I believe that anyone that wants to grow in their practice on and off the matt would greatly benefit from Shanti Heart’s classes.”

Class Descriptions

Essence of Unity ~ Embodied Yoga

In this class you are invited to discover the anatomical, energetic and emotional connections within your body. Expect to feel and move through various modalities of movement: Kriya, somatics and mobility all built into a creatively sequenced asana practice while cultivating focus, strength, fluidity, coordination and self-mastery.   

Empowered Fluidity – a Yang/Yin practice

Yang is more external, dynamic, warming and upward; Yin is more internal, passive, cooling and downward. Begin class activating and stretching your muscles, while building strength (Yang) then moving into a slower practice with longer holds (Yin) working on the deep, connective tissues in the body creating an amazing sense of balance, strength and stability. Restorative & Yin asanas (poses) will be a great part of this practice enhancing immunity and boosting the lymphatic system. 

Integrative Flow & Restore

A gentle, supported and healing form of yoga designed to release deep layers of tension stored in the physical and energetic body. With slow flows, stretching and props, you will nourish every aspect of your being. Enjoy a slower paced class, focusing on increasing flexibility and an enhancing state of mind. We also include meditation as part of this practice.

Yoga for Strength & Mental Clarity

This class is designed with a beautiful purpose of keeping a balance between mind, body and spirit.  Join us to build strength, flexibility, awareness and harmony as you  cultivate a sense of being grounded within your whole being.   We also include meditation as part of this class. This practice is suitable for every Body and anyone.

Healing Movement & Sound Journey

Come experience, expand and receive the powerful medicine of movement & energy healing and sound therapy! Sound & energy are an intelligent consciousness that can detect imbalances and pain patterns both acute and chronic, physical and non physical. Once it locates, it then uses its frequency to change, shift and balance the pattern.  Class starts with movement of joints, warming and awakening the body’s big group muscles as a preparation to receive sound and a theme, like concentration on a specific body system or message of guidance for the current times. 

Realized Serenity- Explore & Integrate

Learn how to access deeper aspects of your true self.  My mission and passion with Realized Serenity is to teach and explore tools and techniques that allow students to practice yoga (union) off the mat. In this 6 week Master group class, we use our bodies to relax our minds.  An exploration of the moment. An exploration of peace. Finding Serenity within.  Utilizing relaxation techniques, breathing techniques, and the therapeutic aspects of self-inquiry & self-guidance,  students will learn and refine tools within the practice that support them off the mat whenever feeling disconnected, anxious, angry, or any other negative emotion. This is a trauma-informed class, there are no hands-on assists, and the class will be tailored intuitively to the energy and needs of those participating. It is time to relax energy and mental blockages and restore a greater sense of self-regulation, peace and ease.

Breath Work, Meditation &  Integration – A breath-centric class performed seated or lying down. Chairs will be available.

Learn how to access deeper aspects of your true self with the help of breathing techniques, guided meditation, sound yoga therapy, mantras, mudras and Holistic Life-coaching.  I’m a Yoga Therapist, holistic life coach, intuitive energy healer and breath expert who serves my clients based on their individual needs, meeting them where they are in every session. I use multiple modalities to assist my clients in managing and healing from physical injuries, trauma, abuse and other conditions like: anxiety, depression, cancer, PTSD, OCD, grief, heartbreak and insomnia.

I’m passionate and compassionate to our human experience and healing. I have been teaching for over 18 years and my heart is open and ready to strive to be a better human being in every moment. I Love healing, learning and the amazing art of letting go. I’ve dedicated most of my years as a yogi to studying breath and movement and how these two amazing sciences enhance our moment to moment experience.  It started with finding solutions to relieve my anxiety and depression as well as to increase my own presence, enhancing my life experience as a wife, mother, daughter, sister, teacher and student.
