Shannon first discovered yoga 20 years ago and immediately recognized how much it improved her mind/body balance. Shannon has used yoga as a tool to help in all three of her pregnancies as well as turmoil that sometimes life has to offer. She began her first teacher training in 2007 with Yogafit but mid training she was called to adventure and moved to Brazil for 5 years for a rough yet transformational spiritual journey. Besides playing in waterfalls and with gigantic hummingbirds and butterflies, she studied with Shamans, dabbled in mysticism and holistic healing methods including essential oils, herbs and crystals, taught yoga and became a certified Reiki Master Teacher. She returned to the in 2012 to live in the Cuyamaca mountains where she loves to hike and continues to play in waterfalls. In 2015 she graduated from Nature's Whisper 200 hour teacher training. Shannon believes in the transformational power that yoga and Reiki have had on her and hopes to share that with anyone open to receive. She uses Reiki and Essential Oils as complements in her yoga classes.
