    Yoga with Melanated Essentials is great! When doing yoga and Shaunte supports me with my deep breathing as well as stretching into positions that I never thought that my body could get into. Melanated Essentials is very empowering!

    Amazing! Between the kids and work, I need this in my life at least once a week. I've never felt so good in a long time. Relaxing and peaceful. Reiki took it up 10 notches! I'm in love lol.

How did you get started teaching?

Dealing with anxiety from an abundance of stress that daily life was placing on me with being a mother, wife, and having a traditional 9 am - 5 pm job. I began having chest pains and went to the doctor. Everything checked out fine. It turns out it was anxiety! I decided to take action and began to explore natural alternatives and methods to help myself which turned into a desire to help others. 

My passion brought about through helping myself turned into a passion to promote healing, health, and wellness to others. In the process of engaging in classes for myself, I began to have a desire to achieve certifications, knowledge, and experience to spread to and help others.
