Shannon dabbled in a yoga practice on and off for years strictly as a workout, as she studied and worked in the fitness industry for years. When she started to deepen her practice practicing with some very inspiring teachers in Boston, she fell in love with yoga for its mindfulness and respect for the physical body. It was an awakening to know this mindful movement, different from any other, could gain those results, and she never turned back. Shannon’s yoga practice became so beneficial to all aspects of her life that she was compelled to spread the wealth. She also teaches high school Wellness and started teaching yoga to her students at school, and to the athletes and staff after school. She then completed her 200-hr. teacher training at Back Bay Yoga. Shannon’s classes are challenging with a focus on respecting one’s own body and emphasize listening to the body, always offering lots of options. Her students are encouraged to approach their practice with playfulness and fun.
