Bring more beauty into your life!

Hi! My name is Shanie Matthews. 

My name, Shanie, actually means “beautiful” in Bavarian German dialect and Hebrew. Though my Mom didn’t realize it at the time, she was giving me my crowning title as I believe this is my purpose in life…to bring more beauty into the world.

Let me help you create more beauty in your world by using my wordsmith and yoga expertise. From health and wellness articles that intrigue and educate to unique yoga classes that help you connect with your highest potential, it is my absolute joy to help people bring more positivity into their lives.
