Flowing. Innovative. Grounded.
Shannon practiced yoga for 10 years before completing her teacher training in Hatha and Vinyasa Yoga in Guatemala with the School of Yoga Institute. Her practice explores connectedness through an active and meditative flow that is designed to strengthen the body and the mind. Having studied creative writing and philosophy at university, she enjoys weaving poetry and quotes into her classes, as well as mindfulness techniques and massage. She believes deeply in the importance of mind body connection, using sensory awareness, pranayama exercises and anatomical reference points to connect with the subtle energetic body.
Her classes usually focus on particular areas of the body and the particular chakras that relate to these parts of the body. For example the class may focus on hip openers or heart openers, to create a deeper opening and expansion in this area over the span of the class. However, the classes are also designed in a way that is balanced and stimulating/ restorative for the body, mind and spirit as a whole. The classes are physically challenging but also deeply meditative.
