Shannon started practicing yoga after she failed out of Modern dance class in college and was forced to find another class. True story. From the moment she stepped into a yoga studio she knew she was drawn to being barefoot, wearing no underwear and smelling like patchouli.
Fast forward 10 years later, Shannon believes it is her dharma to teach yoga and help others find the release, love and light that she continues to discover. She received her 200 hour at City Yoga with Nikki Meyers and Marsha Pappas and is currently working towards her 500 hour with Noah Maze. She has apprenticed under Sara Strother, fallen on her face MANY times with Carmen Aguilar and did half of a 500 hour at Moksha Yoga in Chicago with Daren Friesen. Shannon is, and will forever be, a life long student of yoga.
Shannon’s style is super playful, fun and light hearted. She emphasizes the importance of understanding your own anatomy and pays particular attention to alignment. With a dancer background, her practice is typically a little more rigorous and follows a vinyasa/ hatha tradition. Shannon’s personal mantras are “you do you” and “you are enough”, always encouraging the student to be their very best teacher. It is her goal to weave the physical, mental and spiritual practice of yoga together in each class so be prepared to touch base with all 3. If you don’t like the hippie dippie sh*t, well… you have been warned :). Namaste y’all!
