You’re tired of the wham-bam-thank-you-ma’am fast flow asana classes that emphasize moving, sweating, and pushing to the next level.

You want to share with others another side of yoga, a style that allows people to slow down, turn inward, and get comfortable with stillness.

You’re ready for others to experience the same benefits, like a more open body and calm mind, that you got when you started practicing yin.


Frustrated with yoga studios + teachers who only care about offering asanas classes that rival a gym’s group fitness schedule.

Wishing I could show others that yoga is more than pretty bodies wearing fancy yoga pants contorting into pretzel-like postures.

Needing something that would help me become better at sitting still and meditating for more than a few seconds at a time.

It was only when I started this slow, quiet style of yoga that I realized I’d been missing something critical from my favorite power classes.

Balance. No, not standing on one foot, or going upside down in a headstand.

Poses and a practice that challenged my mind and body in a completely different manner, and subsequently, lessened my anxiety and increased my energy.

As a long-time yoga teacher, I knew my clients needed to balance their practice, too.

take the guesswork out of yin

Let me show you the exact framework I use to design mind-mellowing, body-nurturing classes every time.

= a gentler, deeper way to teach poses and meditation

I’m Shannon, a local and online yoga educator, transforming regular women, just like you, into remarkable teachers.

As a Texas-gal, wife, boy-mom, and chocolate chip cookie fanatic, I’ve mastered the art of squeezing it all in, and I’m not talking about my yoga pants.

As a passionate yoga teacher training, I have more than 20 years and 12,000+ hours of teaching experience, and operate the longest continuously running Yoga Alliance approved training program in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area.

Teaching yoga isn’t about your age, size, or pose-ability. Nor is it about the yoga voice, Sanskrit fluency, or fancy pants. It’s how about people feel during and after class.

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

In 2003, Purple Lotus Yoga opened its doors to five nervous teachers-in-training. Over the last 18 years, I’ve had the privilege of training and mentoring an amazing collective of yoga teachers.

“I’m thrilled to have learned the ins and outs of Yin Yoga. This has been a great study, and I love that I can pause the videos and go back to re-hear and pause so I can copy what is written. The planned classes give me a good start. Thank you.”
