Favorite asana: Uttanasana, forward fold. Grounding and lengthening.
As a young child, Shea loved taking pictures of rocks. She would spend lots of time perusing riverbeds and beach shores, collecting colorful stones and arranging them into patterns. For her, farming is similar: an opportunity to be in touch with nature and arrange it into a pattern that brings beauty and nourishment into our lives. Before coming to Hale Pule, Shea had symptoms of chronic stress and anxiety, nervous tics, nosebleeds and an overactive mind. She has found that practicing Ayurveda and Yoga at Hale Pule has given her not only relief from the symptoms, but a new capacity for joy and openhearted living.
On the farm, Shea guides students to reconnect to nature and shares our wonderful produce with the local community. She is also a student in Hale Pule’s Ayurvedic Health Counselor program.
On the weekends you can find Shea sitting on the back lanai reading, writing, enjoying the garden and the sounds of the birds.
