Shannon began her yoga journey in 1999 and became more dedicated to the practice in 2005. In 2015, she completed 300 hours of Yoga Teacher Training in the Prajna tradition of Tias Little and his senior teacher, Theresa Murphy. She has trained extensively in the Bhakti yoga tradition with her teacher, Raghunath. Dedicated practice with her teachers offers her consistent wisdom, insight, and inspiration on yoga and life.
Shannon's deepest intention is to offer yoga that connects mind, body, and soul through practicing insight and awareness. Her style draws from purposeful sequencing and the building of slow, strong and steady poses. Her classes combine classical teachings with skillful, playful movement. Shannon designs her sequences to be a slow climb, challenging and structured, toward a "maha" or great pose. She frequently teaches a Vinyasa style, linking poses with a focus on alignment and dynamic movement, supported by philosophy, breath work, and some Yin.
Outside the classroom, Shannon pours herself into her daily reading, devotion, personal practice, and dharma as a teacher, wife, and mother of two fiery babes.

This is one of our Flow
In this Vinyasa-style class, students explore their personal and physical edge—as well as self-awareness and intention—by cultivating core stability through complex poses (such as inversions and balancing postures) in sequences that invite precision and mindfulness. Yogis stretch and strengthen muscles while energizing the body and stimulating the mind.
