Sharing, collaborating, supporting, healing, connecting and uniting…These fundamental concepts are at the core of Shannon’s philosophy of what yoga should and can be… so much more than just a practice on our mats. Whether through a network of friends, teachers and healers that she uses and recommends in her own daily life or through the charitable organizations she supports and the events she hosts to contribute and support those organizations, Shannon is always seeking to create & share deeper more meaningful connections in the world.
Shannon is an ambassador for Yoga Gives Back and teaches classes several times per year to raise awareness and funds for the organization. She strongly believes in YGB's mission "to mobilize the global yoga community to empower women and children in India to build sustainable livelihoods. If you are interested in sponsoring an event with Shannon at your studio or learning more about how to get more involved with this fantastic organization, she would love to connect with you.
Working with the elderly is another one of Shannon's passions as she feels yoga is for everybody and EVERY BODY, regardless of age or physical limitations. She currently works with an organization called Hello Healthy that books yoga at Assisted Living Homes in the Chicagoland area. She teaches wheelchair yoga and loves sharing all the benefits of yoga, movement and breath with her students. She hopes to grow a strong community of yogis interested in this kind of work and other local opportunities!
