I am so fortunate to support many amazing athletes and everyday people in their journey toward event training, core integration and stabilization, healing and improved fitness. In addition, I have collaborated with wonderful colleagues in the training, empowered coaching and healing modalities. Below are some additional testimonials on how my clients and collaborators have felt about working with me and my style of training and coaching. A variety of other testimonials are on pages throughout my site.
After years of excruciating sciatic pain and thousands of dollars working with traditional and alternative practitioners, Shanti changed my life in only 6 private sessions. With her extensive knowledge of the body and amazing intuition, she was able to develop an exercise routine that has given me my life back. I am now totally pain free and able to work on keeping my body healthy and fit. She is absolutely amazing and I recommend her to everyone. Thank you, Shanti!

I am so blessed and fortunate to have Shanti as my Yoga and Pilate’s instructor. She is a beautiful soul who sees the good in everyone, gifted with an intuitive nature. Class participants are always amazed how easily she remembers each and every clients’ ailments or limitations, yet in a most inspiring way she helps you to take it to your edge, whatever that might be. Shanti surrounds you with grace, serenity, and a well planned session. At the end of class-you feel well worked, well rested, a sense of accomplishment, fulfillment, and deep enrichment.

Shanti lives and works with integrity; she walks her talk. Her interest in helping others heal is only surpassed by her enthusiasm and compassion. She brings a commitment to balancing the entire body/mind/spirit to all her work, from the most restorative yoga to invigorating fitball routines. She inspires with her presence as well as her knowledge. I have had the opportunity to work with her in several modalities and found her to be both a gentle guide and a motivational agent for my growth. I encourage you to experience her unique perspective on fitness and health.

Signing up for Shanti’s Total Body Conditioning (TBC) three years ago was one of the best things I’ve ever done for myself! As a very active 50+ yr old, I considered myself to be in pretty good shape, but Shanti has taken me to a fitness level I’d never imagined! She’s a genius in knowing how to plan a class for a wide variety of fitness levels and exactly how far to push us – enough to make us feel the burn, but also to keep our confidence strong. We come back each week a little bit stronger, ready for more. The fact is – her classes are addicting!! (Tuesday yoga and Thursday TBC are a perfect combo!) Shanti genuinely cares about everyone in her class, and is very attentive to each individual’s needs – whether it’s a recovering shoulder, weak wrists, or getting over a cold – and then modifies the exercises accordingly. She knows how to take care of us while taking us to our edge! It’s truly like personal training in a social setting! I would recommend Shanti’s classes to anyone, regardless of age, fitness level, or experience. She will take you where you need to go!

“I went to Shanti for personal training after realizing that at 42 yrs old I needed help getting into shape. In addition to the personal sessions, Shanti put together routines that I could do at home that progressed in difficulty as I progressed. By following her plan, I achieved noticeable results in about 90 days and not much later I realized that I was in the best shape of my life. I loved how I looked and felt. Shanti has a talent to make the routines very doable…you don’t even realize the extent of the workout you’re getting at the time but the results speak for themselves. Thanks Shanti!”

Shanti is one of those rare healers whose main influence is bringing us into our bodies more fully through exercise. Often, exercise and healing can seem at odds with one another, but her conscientious presence and skills bring people to greater strength and radiance every day. Any body can benefit from her buoyant and affirming style of teaching. In addition to all the other benefits of working with Shanti, you wbbill also be entering a community of wonderful people whose lives will fill yours with even more joy and aliveness. Shanti collaborates with a wide range of talented people to bring a steady flow of playshops to Boulder. They are so popular in part because of the quality of the guest presenters, but more importantly because of Shanti’s willingness to learn and her generosity of spirit. Working with her in this way is inspiring to the students and the presenters alike.
