Shana Davis

Methods: Power Reformer, Yoga
 
Shana’s background in yoga provides the foundation for her mind body approach to training, nutrition, stress reduction and overall wellbeing. A lifelong student of hatha yoga, Shana became certified to teach vinyasa flow in 2006. Realizing the importance of cross training in a variety of activities in order to achieve a balanced, well-conditioned body and a vibrant, stimulated mind, Shana began practicing a discipline of exercise that combined the fluidity of traditional Pilates with high intensity aerobic conditioning. She found this combination so effective and fun that she completed her SPX training in 2011 and began to teach Sebastian Lagree’s method of total body fitness. Shana’s philosophy is simple: “We’re designed to move and sweat, eat nutritionally dense food, drink water, rest, reflect, and repeat. Sometimes we lose sight of this, I’m here to help folks remember.”
This class is a great way to get going with the TRIBE. We’re talkin’ low-intensity exercise that incorporates traditional Pilates principles, including, some mild strength training and lots of stretching using the unique Pilates reformer springs to lengthen you out.

Seriously, friend. If you’re looking for a stress-free intro, a man or woman rehabilitating an injury, or simply someone who wants to focus more on stretching and workout recovery, Tone & Stretch is the place to be. Space is limited to 10 TRIBE members per class. Grip socks required (available for purchase).
