Hi there, I'm Shannon

For 20 years, I’ve been helping women realize their dream of becoming compassionate, confident, and competent yoga teachers.

I show women they don’t have to be a certain size or race, own expensive clothes and accessories, or contort their bodies into impossible shapes to be a “real” yoga teacher.

Teaching yoga isn’t about your age, Sanskrit fluency, or having an Instagram feed filled with fancy photos. It’s about creating an inclusive space that allows individuals to experience a transformation.

With my Texas-accented Sanskrit, T-Rex arms, and size 8 off-brand yoga pants, I teach one hell of a class.
