About Rooted in Natura

Rooted in Natura was envisioned by Shanine and Diana after studying Folk Herbalism together.
 
We offer a welcoming space to nourish the heart by:
  • Harmonizing with the wisdom of Nature
  • Being embraced in Community

This is nurtured through the ancient teachings of yoga and meditationfolk herbalismself-inquiry, and rituals.
 
All sessions includes a sacred ritual, a yoga practice (led by Shanine), a meditation practice (led by Diana), and an activity connected with nature. Each workshop carries a theme and allows you to remove tension from the outside world, be held in the beautiful healing space of Joshua Creek, and rest in your true essence.
 
You will walk away relaxed, with a sense of deep connection within and around you, and learn something about yourself and Mother Earth.

About Your Instructors

Shanine Dennill

After being touched by the death of family members at a young age, Shanine questioned the meaning of life and death. This led her to study with masterful spiritual teachers.

Shanine was introduced to yoga while studying massage therapy in 1999 (in South Africa). When she came to Canada in 2001, she fell deeply in love with it. She has completed two 200-hour yoga teacher trainings and a 300-hour yoga training, receiving her E-RYT 500 with the Yoga Alliance. Her yoga practices are influenced by Tantra Yoga (from the Sri Vidya lineage). She owned a yoga studio for 10 years, is a teacher trainer, meditation teacher, and Reiki practitioner. She recently completed her Folk Herbalism training, where connection with the Earth feeds her soul.

Shanine has received extensive training in Restorative Yoga and Yoga Nidra. Giving ourselves time and space to slow down, nourish ourselves, and rest is deeply powerful and healing. It creates a sacred space to feel into what lights our soul, brings softness to our stored tension, and allows us to embrace the unknown. Shanine’s desire is to share the wisdom of soulful healing to live fully and die well.

Diana Lavadihno

Diana’s journey began in 2005 when she was first led to meditation to cope with grief. She has been exploring mindfulness and meditation ever since, and it has become the foundation of her daily life.

Over the years, Diana has practiced with various meditation communities from multiple traditions and added certifications in different modalities, including Holistic Studies and Reiki. Most recently, her studies have included Folk Herbalism. Living a life of union with body, mind, and spirit, and in harmony with nature has become her passion.

Diana has deep gratitude for the power of these practices to facilitate magnificent shifts. Her journey ignited a spark, and it is her sincerest aspiration to support and encourage others to explore life-affirming practices such as meditation. Integrating these technologies with daily life awakens our innate healing power and the ability to find a lasting peace already present within us.
