Dance + Yoga

For any dance or yoga inquiries, including private lessons, classes in community, workshops, and collaborations, please contact Shayna!


Join Clara Nieto, Shayna Grajo, and Korana Stipetic in a 4-week blend of Cuban Dance, body awareness and building connections! Classes starting July 5 culminate in a social dance party on Saturday, July 30.

The arching weekly themes include the following:

  1. Connecting Mind and Body
  2. Release the Control and Navigate Change
  3. Empathy
  4. Appreciation and Gratitude

Designed for anyone who has never danced before, and for those who are focusing on building the strongest foundations in Salsa and Rueda, the workshop blends learning the Cuban dances of Salsa and Rueda de Casino.  Explore body awareness and develop connections with not only our dance partners, but with ourselves.

"Both her massage and yoga classes are absolutely fantastic! She is not only incredible at her job but also a great, grounded person with warm heart who would always make you feel comfortable and welcomed. Her studio is such a lovely and sweet place where you can relax yourself and find your inner peace."
