Hello Friend! I have been a teacher of Yoga for a good long while and I am super grateful for that. My classes tend towards vinyasa. My vinyasa can be gentle, sometimes more challenging and never the same (or so I have been told). When I take the seat of the teacher I feel as though I take a read on the students present and then offer a class designed to take you on a journey. My goal is to get you lost in the moment so that you find your Self. I want to leave you in a better place than when you came in. That is my design, that is my intention.
When joining a practice with me as your guide, we'll move progressively through poses selected to open the body, create deep relaxation, and help students move into peace. A practice with me focuses on breath and individual experience in one's own body, so the student may explore the depth or krama that is appropriate for them. I love to offer variations in poses and the use of props so everyone can feel successful and meet themselves where they are today.
I like to sprinkle a little bit of humor with my teaching, and enhance the experience with music and essential oils.
Yoga allows me to create a peaceful space among the excitement of life. Through the practice of yoga, I can calm the mind by connecting with breath and draw your attention inward. I strive to bring awareness to the strength and flexibility of the body, also the areas holding stress, tension or fear. I like to offer new ways to let go and make space for new opportunities. My classes mainly follow a vinyasa flow, using my knowledge as a exercise physiologist to add elements of specific muscle activation and function. I like to build up to new challenges, have fun and creative classes, and integrate breath for a combination of building heat and keeping practice gentle and cool.
My intention when teaching is to deliver a peaceful and meditative practice incorporating the breath, awareness, and a wide variety of poses. I aim to create heat through movement and strength in transitions as well as moments of stillness and relaxation. I encourage students to explore the body, mind, emotions and individual daily direction and take what is needed on that specific day. Props and pose variations are used to meet the needs of all students in attendance. I use music to help create the atmosphere of class.

What is included in the 9-day program~
4 weeks, starting Friday August 18, 8:15-8:45am
Join Shannon for this 4-week series targeting all of the major muscle groups in an endurance-based structured interval setting. Each 30 minute session will feature 20-second high intensity interval stations, followed by 10-second rest periods. After completing 8 sets, fully fatiguing one muscle group, you'll move to the next exercise. This style of training builds strength, endurance, stabilization, muscle control, and body awareness. Modifications will be offered to allow all levels to experience this strength training program. This class is great for someone who is looking for a challenge and desires a short, targeted workout to sweat and show to yourself how strong you are! Body weight and minimal equipment will be used to easily transition this workout to home.
