It all started when...

I was sitting in a coffee shop in Hangzhou, China and I wanted to leave the city that I was in. I searched for trains, flights, hotels and I couldn't seem to find a way out - everything was booked. I calmed myself down and said, "well, it looks like i'm just going to have to wait." Twenty minutes later,  two English men walk in and strike up a conversation with me. They ended up offering me one of my dream jobs. I took it and didn't look back after that. I realized in that moment that our intuition is our greatest gift and that if we go with the flow of our lives we can ultimately live in our truth. If we work hard to harness the energy around us and truly let go of what isn't ours, we can accept our most authentic life.

What we do

We connect with healing practitioners to create a safe space for clients to heal, learn and grow. We specialize in yoga classes, retreats and events. Our goal is for our clients to shape their bodies and minds so they can heal and ultimately inspire others. Shi Wellness isn't a place or a thing, it's something that you need to find inside yourself and have the courage to bring forward so that you can freely give and share in your life.
