Shana Kuhn-Siegel

Shana Seigel has been teaching yoga for over 15 years after she took the first-ever teacher training program offered at Yoga Shanti in Sag Harbor. After getting her Masters in Social Work from NYU, she ran the the first Urban Zen Foundation, a nonprofit started by Donna Karan, the pilot program held at Beth Israel Hospital. Shana is grateful for all the teachers she studied with over the years, especially Colleen Saidman Yee and Rodney Yee. She is also inspired by the groundbreaking work of Nevine Michaan and her Katonah Yoga method. Shana’s classes are playful, intuitive and challenge students to move beyond limiting beliefs. She is grateful for all her students and for her private clients who offer her opportunities to learn more every day. She is especially grateful for having met her spiritual mentor ten years ago who inspires and challenges her to live each day authentically and in constant pursuit of the truth!
