Shannon is down to earth and meets her students where they are, promoting transformation through steady, consistent practice. She believes that through yoga we become keenly aware of our bodies, minds, and emotions; that by tuning in we learn how to heal, nourish, and know ourselves from the inside out. Shannon is a lifelong learner with a gift for teaching. She holds a Master’s degree in Art Education and is passionate about helping others find balance in their lives through the different lenses of yoga. She believes that every student has his/her own specific set of needs and that through yoga and meditation we can achieve balance and harmony in our bodies, our relationships, and our communities. Off the mat Shannon enjoys painting, printmaking, travel, backpacking, and time outdoors.
