Guiding True Nature
Co-Created by Deva and Eaden Shantay, weaving together a tapestry of practices to open, connect, deepen and awaken.
Every facet of our experience offers the possibility to learn, teach, heal and grow. At TNHA, we are co-creating a supportive environment to explore, share and serve all creation.
Within us, lies that which we are searching for. We each hold the key to unlock the door of infinite joy and endless possibility.
With light and love, may we each come to know our purpose and walk the sacred path we are meant to walk in this life.
In gratitude for your participation in this holy expression of consciousness.

Office Manager and Yoga Instructor
Priscilla moved from Arizona to the Roaring Fork Valley with her husband, Jeff, in 1985. They chose to live in Carbondale for the vibrant community and beautiful environment. Priscilla’s background in education led her to teach at the Mt. Sopris Montessori Pre-School before starting her own alternative school, Mtn. Sage Elementary, which eventually became the Carbondale Community School. A few years later, Priscilla became the administrator at the Waldorf School on the Roaring Fork were she worked until 2004.
In 1994, Priscilla and Jeff were blessed to give birth to their daughter, Sadie. In June of 2004, Jeff, Sadie, and Priscilla embarked on a sailing adventure to the Eastern Caribbean. They sailed for a year, loved the island life, and were caught in a hurricane (Ivan). They enjoyed their cruising/sailing life and may have stayed “out there” only their life in the Roaring Fork valley called them home.
Upon their return, Priscilla explored several different career opportunities and eventually was led to True Nature Healing Arts which has been a life changing experience. Priscilla is now a 200 hr. IYT yoga instructor and is excited to be offering a beginners’ yoga class for individuals over the age of 50. Priscilla also loves meeting and greeting all the yoga students as they come to experience all that TNHA has to offer!
