The flowers, plants and trees, they speak a language, a universal language, and if you listen closely, you can hear it. Shawna Schenk is here to listen and help others do the same. Shawna is a New Jersey born, San Diego Based, holistic healer: a talker and listener of plants, energy, stones, and the heart.

She is the founder and creator of Yoga With Shawna and San Diego Yoga Festival is an internationally recognized yoga teacher, Reiki master, author, and spiritual activist leading classes, workshops, teacher trainings, retreats, and festivals throughout the world. She is certified in various types of yoga including Hatha, Vinyasa, SUP Yoga, Yin Yoga, Ayurveda, Naam Yoga, and Shakti Naam Yoga and has countless other degrees and certifications in various schools of healing in aromatherapy/plant medicine, energy medicine, shamanism, and sound therapy. She has created 7 different certification programs in energy medicine and yoga teacher training. The plants are with her every step of the way and she is beyond honored to be able to share their teachings with anyone who wants to listen.

With certifying over 1000 people in various modules of holistic healing, Shawna’s plant medicine course focuses on LISTENING deeply to the plant. We will meditate, write, and move with the plant as our soul and the medicine connect. The course focuses on seeing the unseen and seeing all creature as a valuable member of Earth with all something to give. 

Like all of Shawna’s courses, the focus is on YOU first, for how can you help others if you do not have a regular and sustainable self healing practice? The course asks you to log within and use these teachings for your own health to liberate from a place of high love. From there, only we will be able to serve. Because Shawna believes it is our birth duty to peacefully serve one another the course will prepare you to do that. After the course Plant Internship experiences at the studio along with assisting in plant medicine classes will help support and aid your continuing education. 

Shawna is also the author of “Talking to Plants, Trees and Flowers” and has a free podcast on Spotify on Plant Medicine.  She looks forward to spending sacred time together as we connect as one.
