Shalan Hill

Shalan Hill, Retreat Leader and co-owner of The Posture Project, is a Licensed and Certified Massage Therapist (CMT & LMT) and a Certified Yoga Teacher.  

Shalan began her study of yoga in 1998 and has been teaching since 2001 in the Woodstock area.  Her initial years of experience with Yoga trained her in the Hatha Yoga (traditional) style with focus on Kundalini Yoga which involves Pranayama (breathing techniques to promote energy movement and balance).  She completed her credentials for her 200 hour Yoga Alliance training gaining more knowledge of the Iyengar tradition and started her own Ashtanga practice, as well.  Having her own recent experiences with PTSD and a Limbic System Impairment, Shalan was forced by her body and mind’s conditions to maintain a very gentle yoga practice. Interestingly, her focus has always been mainly teaching a gentler style of yoga to beginners, people with limited bodies, and older bodies, and is well versed on prop usage for her students’ comfort and freedom.

Shalan intuitively listens to the needs of the energy of the group while getting specific with the actions of your body, breath, and focus in each pose.  Appreciated for her clear instruction and nurturing presence that makes yoga easy and non intimidating for beginners. She educates her students & clients about their body and shares informational tools to empower them to enjoy better health & Well-Being resulting in less pain and less fear. Sometimes playful, sometimes laser focused, her intuitive blending of delightful poses throughout her Yoga Classes and transformational meditations has created an enriched yoga community.

Being a Massage Therapist gives her a deeper dimension of understanding the anatomy of the human body and how to achieve balance for better posture.  This knowledge she passes to her students to empower them to understand their body and how they can help themselves to stay out of pain and feel stronger. 

Shalan saw the value of combining massage/bodywork and yoga to help people achieve and maintain greater balance and health in their life and was inspired to open The Posture Project, Yoga & Massage in Woodstock, GA.
