About The Teacher
Increasingly drawn to nature-based spirituality, Shannon passionately utilizes yogic tools in support of growth and transformation, holding space with gentle grace in training, workshops, and retreats around the world. Shannon has taught Yoga and Meditation for the past decade throughout the globe, sharing her passion for ‘healing’ while celebrating the interconnectedness of body, mind, and Spirit. A dynamic yoga teacher, energy worker, and life coach, Shannon draws from the Hatha, Vinyasa Flow, Jivanmukti, Nidra, Yin and Restorative traditions, providing space for students to journey deeply into themselves as they move beyond asana into the mental, emotional, and energetic realms of yoga. Shannon also has a wealth of experience in yogic philosophy, anatomy, nutrition, Ayurveda, tantra, various yogic methods (Iyengar, Power Yoga (Baptiste), Children’s, Chair, Pre-Natal, Usui & Lightarian Reiki), and is always working to bring yoga off the mat and into the larger world. Combining her studies with yoga masters, healers, and shamans around the world, Shannon offers guided meditations and energy work in addition to asana during her classes as a way for one to transition deeper into their highest self. As of March 2018, Shannon will have accumulated over 4000 hours of Yoga & Meditation related training and over 1000 hours in Wholistic Therapy including Herbology and Ayurveda. As an experienced teacher, she has taught over 7000 hours of classes over the past decade. She studied Science (Anatomy/Physiology, Biochemistry, Microbiology, Virology) at the University of Saskatchewan and has been coaching students in life & spirituality for over 15 years. As a humanitarian, Shannon has donated over 3000 hours to various charities and helped raise over $3 million dollars for non-profit organizations. As a Yogi, for the past 5 years, Shannon has donated (teaching without compensation) 35-40 classes/month for her local community so that they may use the tools she’s learned through her studies to further themselves in their own personal journeys. She is also a mother of a little Yogi and Spiritual Seeker/Teacher.
