Tierra and yoga found eachother at the same time she sought a deeper commitment to her physical, mental and spiritual health. Being a health and fitness enthusiast, yoga opened her eyes to a new expression of everything she loved.
Originally from Midland, TX, Tierra received both her BSEd and MSEd from Baylor University in Health Science Studies and Exercise Physiology, respectively. After receiving her RYT-200 Hour Teacher Training in 2013, she immediately started teaching to various demographics in the local community and privately.
Since then she's been fortunate to share her love of yoga through a schedule of regular classes and assisting with leading teacher trainings with Living Beyond the Mat, LLC. Tierra feels blessed to merge her passion of educating and wellness to empower others to live their lives through yoga. She is excited about her journey and looks forward to supporting the PAI family along theirs!
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.
