YOGA TEACHERS…

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

I show women of all shapes and ages
how to embrace their unique traits and

skyrocket their confidence.

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

You don’t have to be a certain age, size or race, wear expensive name brand clothes, or be vegan and drink green smoothies to be a “real” yoga teacher.

Take me for example, I don’t bend and flex like others. I am vertically challenged and have T-Rex arms. I speak Sanskrit with a Texas accent. I love cheeseburgers, cookies, and Chick-fil-A iced tea.

But that hasn’t stopped me from teaching yoga and training teachers for the last 24 years.

Yoga is more than fancy pants and postures, it’s about creating an inclusive space that allows individuals to experience a whole life transformation, including your own!

Hi, I'm Shannon!

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 postures, it’s about creating an inclusive space that allows individuals to experience a whole life transformation.

Through private coaching, online training, yoga class planners, and the Yoga Sequencing Society, I can show you how to do the same with confidence and authenticity.

I look forward to working with you on some part of your yoga teacher journey!

On the Blog

"A good yoga teacher is not necessarily someone who can perform all manner of complicated asanas.
To live the life of a yogi is about faith that continuously guides the teacher towards practices leading to harmony."
