A graceful, powerful flow that incorporates athletic movement with accessible alignment, meditative awareness, pranayama and yoga philosophy.
Shannon discovered yoga in 2002 as a means of physical fitness during her college days. As she transitioned to the "real world," she found that yoga provided so much more than the physical strength and flexibility that practitioners enjoy. Yoga cultivated a reflective space to reconnect to her breath and self.
She knew she wanted to take her practice deeper when she began to notice how it sparked her overall energy, health, and outlook “off the mat.” While working and living in Los Angeles, she discovered the Vinyasa Flow classes of Steve Ross and Bryan Kest. In 2009, Shannon moved to Chicago and completed a 200-hour teacher training certification at North Shore Yoga. Shannon loves the unending journey and continual challenge that the Ashtanga and Vinyasa styles provide, and she strives to deepen her practice through the knowledge of senior teachers and other students. Shannon’s classes combine vigorous asana with warmth and acceptance.
Shannon has a Masters degree in Social Work at University of Chicago and is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. Shannon lives with her husband, Hunter, and her two daughters, Harper and Brynn.
