Shayelle Lajoie | Yoga & Fitness Teacher

From Australia

 What is your role in the Salty Souls Experience ?

Yoga, Fitness & Life Optimization Teacher in Bali this season!

What’s your background and how did you acquire those skills ?

22 years of ballet, 11 years of yoga, 10 years of surfing and a lifetime of love for nutrition brought me to where I am today. I attained my YTT certificate in Ubud four years ago and ran a yoga school in Thailand for just short of a year. I moved back to Sydney where I taught surf lessons, outdoor yoga and began deeper studies into Nutrition, reading up on plenty of studies that are buried by Big Pharma and Big Food. My passion is helping others learn about the truths of the food industry and helping them discover optimal health and fitness for longer, healthier lives.

Ninja super skill people don’t know you possess ?

I can suck my nostrils together like a vacuum with no hands, impressive, I know. Oh and belly roll, it’s pretty gross and makes me feel ill, but still worth the 5 seconds of entertainment.

Favorite place in the world ? 

Everywhere! I fall in love everytime I go to a new place. Raja Ampat for its untouched waters, Mauritius for the history and beaches, Bali for the food and surf, Vancouver for the hikes and incredibly friendly humans, Sri Lanka for the surf and sunsets…

What gets you the most excited in life ?

Human connection. Those moments you strike up conversation with a complete random, you share information, good vibes are spread, laughs are had and moments are added to your lifetime of memories, lessons and happiness.

What is the craziest thing you’ve ever done ?

Moved to the other side of the planet, alone.
