I'm Miz Shawna, Shawna Whitlock, an LA-based fitness/dance instructor with a mission to help my clients transform their bodies with Dance Cardio & Strength Training, all while experiencing Joy and Fun. I mean, who says transformation has to be so serious? I want to bring my clients back to the fundamentals of dance and fitness to connect them with their inner child to re-discover their true selves. Experience doesn't matter, excitement does. The tone of my classes are playful and positive, yet intense and effective.
More About Me: I'm a native Southern Californian, but it was during my childhood years in El Paso, Texas where I first fell in love with dance. At first self taught, then officially enrolled in classes at 13, I looked to dance to find both solace and inner confidence. I was a Dancer and Character Performer at Walt Disney World, FL where I learned and discovered my gift of creating magical moments through performance and being myself. After moving to Los Angeles to pursue a career in comedy, I began sharing my passion for dance when I started teaching children's dance classes at Creation Station Studio City in 2006—where my pseudonym Miz Shawna made her first appearance—and then moved into the fitness realm as a teacher at the original Pop Physique barre studio in Silver Lake. During my 7 years there, I learned tremendous lessons about the body and its complexities and not only became one of the most popular Master Instructors, but also a Trainer for new teachers.
In addition to YOUnicorn Fitness, I teach at Equinox Gym's around the LA area. This past year, I had the honor of Hosting and Choreographing “Get Moving with Disney Family” - check out the 6 episodes online. Get your family together and move with all your favorite Disney Characters! I’m also in school, working towards a Degree In Kinesiology.
