Erin has an eye for connections and a knack for clear communication. She teaches in a way that is equal parts precise alignment and flowing movement. Her classes have been called "sneaky-tough", but since she speaks heart-to-heart, the tough feels like love. Students leave class feeling rinsed clean and inspired to live big. Erin completed her first teacher training in 2007. She's been leading classes ever since and growing her own particular way of transmitting yoga's wisdom. She has enjoyed more than 400 hours of training with Sianna Sherman. Hareesh Wallis, Noah Maze, and Darren Rhodes are also among her teachers and influences.
As a girl Erin wanted to be Pegasus and fly like lightning. For now she's happy being a yoga teacher, leading kindred spirits on flights toward freedom in our bodies and hearts.
On the urging from one of her own teachers to expand her practice further, Shannon completed her RYT 200 certification in 2016. Shannon draws influence from many different styles of yoga, from Ashtanga to Yin, but believes that attention to breath is the tie that binds all yoga styles. From the breath, she feels that each student can happily and healthfully reach his or her potential, on the mat and off. She enjoys weaving the stories of traditional yogic philosophy with relatable, current themes. It's Shannon's goal to give each student a taste of the clarity that yoga has brought to her.
She returned from southern China in January of 2016 where she and her family had lived for the past two years. While there she was able to teach and to learn from different people from all of the world. This experience deepened her love for the practice and its power to reach ALL people. She has seen how yoga can be transformational both physically and soulfully and teaches from a place of love and gratitude.
