E-RYT500 & Yoga Medicine® Therapeutic Specialist
Shannon is a 500 E-RYT Yoga Medicine® teacher and Therapeutic Specialist based in Oklahoma City. She specializes in yin, vinyasa, and meditation and has additional training in mindfulness meditation and Thai Yoga bodywork.
Shannon is down to earth and encourages her students to be at home in their bodies. Her yoga and meditation classes promote mindful, compassionate awareness. Shannon’s yin and meditation classes are designed to guide students deeper into their physiology, and to nurture a calm, quiet internal environment. Her vinyasa classes promote deep focus and an understanding of anatomical alignment, with a playful approach to movement. She believes that through yoga we cultivate awareness and compassion, and that by turning inward we learn how to nourish and heal ourselves.
Shannon is owner of This Land Yoga and co-founder of Awake OKC, a non-profit organization that offers weekly meditation classes and mindfulness training for public schools, prisons, and recovery programs. She leads a 200-hour teacher training program at her studio in Oklahoma City and offers Yin trainings and continuing education workshops throughout the year. Shannon enjoys writing about the practice and is a contributing author for Yoga Journal.
