200-hour certification @ Sacred Space

When I launched Purple Lotus Yoga teacher training in January 2003, it was the culmination of passion and experience. I’d graduated college with a B.S. in Journalism and stumbled into the world of corporate training and development. I loved training, but the corporate part left me empty.

After I was laid off from another training position, it was suggested I start teaching yoga full time since I had such passion for it. Two years later, I created my dream job: training and mentoring yoga teachers.

Sixteen years later, I’m still doing what I love. I’m still as passionate today as I was in that first session with five participants.

‘What I received were ways to break free of that desire to fold into myself! I’ve expanded my vision more than I could ever have imagined. Shannon believes in me and in all her students.”

“I was driving home from teacher training and feeling choked up because a whisper of a dream from 2007 is becoming a reality. I’m so happy I found you and your teacher training. It’s been an exciting journey learning the ins and outs of yoga and teaching and learning more about myself in the process.”
