Shanon Chaiken, CHt
Born in Detroit, raised in Los Angeles, my healing journey began in NYC 2009 and taken me around the world.
Since I growing up in Southern California I've practiced yoga and meditation. My life was not always in sync with these practices, I worked in the entertainment business for 20 years before realizing I was extremely unhappy with my life, my job and felt no connection to what I was doing to make a living.
After struggling with addiction for years, I got sober in 2009, it began a new phase in my life, discovering myself, loving myself, finding my purpose and what made me happy.
In 2011, a passion for yoga brought me to my first of five yoga teacher certifications.
Over the years, I've taught vinyasa, prenatal, kids and teen yoga. I have been lucky to have taught in a variety of settings in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles and Detroit including: yoga studios, schools, play centers, events, public parks and private clients.
Clients have included C3 Productions, VH1 Save The Music, Quicken Loans, Definition 6 NYC.
I was blessed to have spent three years as the exclusive kids yoga teacher at the Lollapalooza Music Festival in Chicago, IL.
2013 I was part of the early graduating classes the D:Hive Build Institute program in Detroit, a business and project planning class designed for aspiring and established entrepreneurs. My class was featured in an article for the Detroit Free Press.
In 2016 I graduated as a Licensed Massage Therapist from Irene's Myomassology Institute in Southfield, MI, I am licensed to practice massage therapy in Michigan, Texas, Florida and California.
In 2020 in the midst of our pandemic I graduated with a certification in hypnotherapy from renowned hypnotherapist and teacher Grace Smith's Grace Method Hypnotherapy School in Vero Beach, FL. Grace helped me changed my life the first time I worked with her in 2018 and I knew at that moment I wanted to do the same using her method of hypnosis. I am certified in hypnosis and am a member of IACT, International Association of Counselors & Therapists.
My desire to continue learning and serving others has led me to intensive study with certifications at Upledger Institute studying Craniosacral and Somatic Emotional Release Therapy and Spiritjunkie Master Class with Gabrielle Bernstein 2017,
I also hosted Goddess Talk, on-line chats and interviews with women from around the world on my Facebook page Our Goddess Group. In late 2021 I will launch the new podcast The Hypnotic Soul, bringing together the work I do with recovery and healing to life for others.
