Shannon began practicing yoga nearly 20 years ago. After several stops and starts, she found her way back to yoga for good after a high-risk twin pregnancy. After devoting her energy to her family she recognized the need for self-care. She realized that a daily yoga practice allowed her become a more balanced and complete individual. What started as a way to get fit became a way of life.
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.

Yin is in! Join Dublin PAI teacher Shannon Hennerfeind for a special seasonal Yin yoga practice. In this class, we’ll harness the quiet power of Yin yoga to support and balance the energy of each season by targeting specific meridians, or energy channels. Students can expect to hold poses for 3-5 minutes with the intention of gently stimulating the deep connective tissues of the body. During this session, we will briefly review the 3 tenets of Yin yoga, consider the characteristics of each season through the lens of Traditional Chinese Medicine, then culminate with a 75-minute Yin practice. This class is suitable for yogis of all experience levels.
