Teachers

JESSIE SANDOVAL
Jessie Sandoval, a health and wellness advocate for many years, is the owner and founder of Shanti Yoga Center. She has personally practiced yoga for more than 25 years and has been teaching classes off and on for 20 years. Throughout her work and explorations, Jessie realized that yoga is a place to come home to no matter which path leads you through the door, and for that reason she decided to make this passion into a lifelong career that ultimately helps others, opening Shanti Yoga Center in Summer 2019. As a yoga teacher, Jessie meets her students where they are in their practice, actively working to create a space where people can easily continue to grow. During her own practice, Jessie initially came to yoga with an athlete’s mind, looking to improve her flexibility after acknowledging the toll that running had taken on her body. She experienced immense physical benefits from yoga while taking special note of how it calmed her mind. As she connected to her breath more and more, not only did her physical wellness improve, but she felt she became a better mother, wife, and daughter.

LAURA WILANT
Laura has been exploring yoga asana for nearly 20 years, with curiosity towards movement and appreciation for the possibility of the human body. Most recently, she’s embarked on the effects of meditation as part of daily practice, and believes holding yourself in love, with love to be a profound way to walk in the world. She fuses the awareness of breath-body-brain in each of her classes, which have a rhythm towards restorative, accessible and adaptive, prop use and dynamic Hatha-Vinyasa character. She completed her 230hr yoga teacher training in 2018 at the Yoga Center of Minneapolis, with an additional certification in kosha-centered meditation with Tara Cindy Sherman of Tree Spirit Yoga.

Laura is currently working towards her 300hr Spiritual Warrior yoga teacher certification through YogaFarm. She loves being part of the dynamic community of students and teachers at Shanti Yoga Center, journeying together, growing in the possible and finding that peace within.
