Her passion is bringing mindfulness to youth to strengthen their well-being and awaken resilience by helping them cultivate self-awareness and compassion and teaching them effective strategies to help them to communicate and connect in a deep and meaningful way.

Shantal was first introduced to mindfulness at a young age and has always had a passion for contemplative and introspective practices. In 2007, her interest in and practice of mindfulness deepened, prompting her to participate in various mindfulness workshops and retreats throughout the country. Inspired by the profoundly transformative and healing effects that she experienced on a personal level, as well as the unique challenges posed by parenting two young children and a teen, Shantal decided to become trained as a Mindful Educator through Mindful Schools so that she could help others achieve balance, clarity, and wellness for their mind, body, and spirit.

In teaching mindfulness, Shantal brings her experience as a parent, life coach, and her own daily mindfulness practice to provide a welcoming, supportive, compassionate, and healing environment coupled by a keen sense of the mindset needed to introduce and nurture a love for this invaluable practice to our youth.

As a mindfulness educator, Shantal offers both private one-on-one instruction to youth, parents, and individuals and public group lessons for youth via nonprofits, schools, and yoga studios.

Shantal is also a Reiki Master, writer, event producer, and marketing and PR consultant for individual practitioners, companies, and organizations in the personal growth and wellness industries.
