About me

I’m Shani. I’m a writer, a mother, a yogi. These three roles are my great loves. I’m also the author of Being Ana, a memoir of my life as an anorexic. Sometimes it’s hard to believe it’s my story.

I gratefully earn my living doing what I love—writing. I work as a copywriter for a San Francisco based health coach company. I practice Vinyasa yoga with all my heart and, after twenty years of practice, yoga continues to be my life’s work. I hope to be able to do the splits when I’m sixty.

I happily raise my five-year-old son in the Bay Area of California where the sun Goddess is always shining. I deeply value community; forests; camping; hiking; children’s energy; ritual; cooking; whole food; my yoga mat; sitting around fires under the stars; sunshine; blue skies and rain.
