Shevy was first introduced to yoga while working for a fashion company and used the practice to ease the stress of the 8-hour work day. She soon found that the benefits of the practice helped her develop a clear sense of self and realized that working in that corporate environment was not stimulating her creativity or helping her find ways to be more joyful. She turned to teaching yoga as a way of paying forward the jewels of this practice to others. Her classes are about helping students breathe and become curious about themselves while building physical strength and flexibility in basic or challenging poses. She encourages students to ask questions of themselves, ie; what are my habits, how do I react when asked to do something unfamiliar and most importantly where does my mind go as I sit in these asanas? Shevy is a native New Yorker and also an actor. She uses her skills as a performer to help students be present throughout their practice.
She received certification from Om Yoga in 2005, Restorative Certification from Om Yoga/Cyndi Lee, Prenatal Certification from Mia Borgatta/Ma Yoga, Level 3 Meditation Certification with David Nichtern Senior teacher at Shambhala Center, NYC.
