You don't need to fit a certain mold to teach yoga.

Let me show you how to embrace your unique traits and skyrocket your confidence to be a stand out yoga teacher at every stage.

we help you value one, value two and value three.

Yoga needs real. Not skinny, trendy, and overly bendy.

It can be intimidating to pursue your dream of teaching yoga when you don’t look like the stereotypical yoga teacher.

But you don’t have to be a certain size or race, own expensive clothes and accessories, or contort your body into impossible shapes to be a “real” yoga teacher.

I'm Shannon Caldwell

I don’t bend and flex like others. I am vertically challenged and have T-Rex arms. I wear size 8-10 off-brand yoga pants and speak Sanskrit with a Texas accent.

But that hasn’t stopped me from teaching yoga and training teachers for the last 20+ years.

Teaching yoga isn’t about fancy pants and poses, it’s about creating an inclusive space that allows individuals to experience a whole life transformation.

And through yoga teacher training, planners, and the Yoga Sequencing Society, I can help you do the same!
