Restorative + Yoga Nidra
This class is for de-stressing and re-balancing our energy. This combined yoga practice will renew and ready us for a calm evening, good night’s sleep and clear day ahead. Our Restorative Yoga will use a variety of postures supported with props, such as chairs, bolsters, blankets and straps to experience a deep body relaxation. We move our spine in all directions, alternately stimulating and soothing our organ systems. We reverse the effects of gravity, returning the fluids to our upper body and enhancing heart function. Reducing muscle tension and fatigue, as well as improving digestion, we provide a supportive environment to relax the body. We end with Yoga Nidra as a very powerful way to still the mind. It is not necessary to concentrate. Simply listen to the instructions, follow them mentally, and refrain from sleeping. Yoga Nidra can calm the mind and elevate our spirit.
Students leave Shannon’s classes feeling grounded, powerful, and graceful.
Raised in a conservative home in South Texas, Shannon spent much of her first decades lacking any real awareness or compassion for her body. Though she first began practicing yoga in 2005 as a way to build muscle and flexibility for rock climbing, through yoga, she has found strength and a grace for herself beyond anything she could have imagined.
Following the sudden death of a pet, Shannon became interested in the nature of consciousness which led her to Tibetan Buddhist teachings. A year later, she began her 200 hour journey through yoga teacher training in Sacramento, CA and in 2020 completed another 300 hours, focusing on Hatha, Restorative, and the style of BKS Iyengar with an emphasis on alignment.
Whether she’s leading students through a sweaty flow-style practice or cooling relaxation poses, her classes encourage awareness of sensation and breath to cultivate confidence in the intuition of the body. Joined with the physical benefits, her classes are a holistic approach to experiencing life more fully and freely.
