Where yoga and shen connect

Yoga Connect Shen has evolved as a combination of the love and experience of two ancient medicines and philosophies. When 23 years of Chinese Medicine experience combines and connects with over 20 years of yoga practice, then the Yoga connects to the Shen.

The word Shen in Chinese Medicine is a complex concept but put simply is ‘the spiritual element of a person’s psyche’.

The birth of Yoga Connect Shen signifies the desire to not only have Chinese Medicine (in its own right a powerful healing modality) but the strength, flexibility and peace that yoga brings to the table.
