Dr.Shafer has worked alongside me, training LifeForce Yoga Practitioners at places like Kripalu Center and Sivananda Ashram. I have watched with admiration as, with compassion, she guides her clients and students into a deeper level of self-awareness. Her profound understanding of the philosophical principles of yoga and her clinical skills manifest in a light-hearted, upbeat approach to healing. I am grateful to call her a colleague and friend.
