Shannon Walker

 
Shannon's classes are a potent mix of yogic philosophy, movement, and curiosity. She sees yoga as a transformative process allowing us to return to our true selves again and again. Her roots are in a strong and playful Vinyasa but she has lots of love for Yin, Restorative, Therapeutics, and Somatic movement. She is inspired to teach from a place of moving with fine awareness, in hopes to reconnect her students both body and soul.

Shannon received her first 200 level certification through Patti Doyle, of Thames Street Yoga in 2011. She has studied extensively with her teacher Raghunath since 2011 and was granted an honorary 300 hour certification after studying with him in India.

Of recent, she completed a 300 level certification with her friend and teacher Theresa Murphy in the Prajna lineage of Tias Little.

Always a student, Shannon continues her study with her root teachers, Theresa and Raghunath, as well as Carrie Owerko, Patricia Walden, and Tias Little when she can.



Shannon Walker instructs the following:
  • Yoga II/III
  • This is one of our Foundations classes.

    This dynamic and challenging class serves those who strive to deepen their yoga practice. Yoga II/III is a creative exploration of yoga postures that balance physical challenge with mindfulness. Yoga experience is encouraged as this classes focuses on refinement and precision.


  • Heated Immersion Flow

  • This is one of our Flow classes.
     
    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.
     
    This class is done in a heated room. The heat encourages greater flexibility and detoxification. Yoga experience is necessary and students are asked to bring a towel, mat and water.

  • Yin Restorative
  • This class offers an opportunity to relax, release, and tend to yourself. You will leave feeling recharged, restored, and rejuvenated. The practice is soft and restful. All the poses are done on the floor with abundant support in the way of cushions and blankets to ease your way into stillness. The concept of finding balance in the harmonious blending of opposites is at the heart of this practice. Yin Restorative is a restorative practice infused with meditative Mindfulness and meridian wisdom. Yin is understood to be all things Chandra (the moon), soft, calm, cool and soothing, while Yang is the opposite – Surya (the sun), energetic, hot and invigorating. But it’s not a question of either one or the other; Yin and Yang co-exist. To find balance in our lives we need both, but we need to find the balance that is right for us. This class offers deep release and relaxation on its own, and is also a great complement to a more vigorous, yang practice.
