The time has come to nurture your body and mellow your mind because. . .

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 a more open body and calm mind like you did when you started practicing yin.

What is yin yoga?

Where yang yoga is a dynamic and muscular style of asana (posture) yoga that emphasizes internal heat as well as the lengthening and contracting of your muscles.

Yin is cool and restful with a focus on the connective tissue that isn’t normally exercised in more active yoga asana classes.

πŸ‘‰ Mostly seated asanas where you hold the poses for several minutes
πŸ‘‰ Suitable for almost all levels of practitioners
πŸ‘‰ Not restorative yoga

If you’re looking for something that will aid you in sitting still and meditating, yin yoga might be exactly what your mind and body are craving.

I can show you how

This is the exact, step-by-step framework I use to design and teach mind-mellowing, body-nurturing classes every time.


This anti-fluff online course will show you how to instruct others in this slow, quiet style of yoga while also enriching your own asana + meditation practice.

= 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 andΒ go back to re-hear and pause so I can copy what is written. The planned classes give me a good start. Thank you.”
