Sjauna Buttacavoli

Sjauna Smile2014

Sjauna has been a licensed massage therapist for the past 12 years.  She has always loved the healing powers of movement and touch.  This became evident even before her mother enrolled her in dance classes at an early age.  She remembers constantly dancing around the house with her own song in her head.  Self healing through yoga has become an essential component to Sjauna’s own life within the past 5 years.  It’s a profound gift to learn how to connect with oneself through conscious breath-work.  With this aim, we can gain more compassion for ourselves and therefore family, friends, and even strangers.  She is excited about having the opportunity to help others learn to heal and experience themselves.  Sjauna believes yoga is a medium in which we can create compelling unity through self love.
