Registered Yoga Teacher, Certified Ayurveda Practitioner

shannon-pic1As a teacher of yoga and ayurveda, I guide people in the self-care practices that are foundational to good health, self-healing and personal transformation.

MY BACKGROUND: For 30+ years I have practiced and trained in many styles of hatha yoga, in authentic movement, Tibetan Buddhist meditation, western psychology, ayurveda and the Diamond Approach.  I love to integrate these teachings into a meaningful practice that supports practitioners in deepening their connection to the source of yoga within themselves.

I am grateful to many wonderful teachers for imparting the spirit and practice of yoga, meditation, ayurveda and self-inquiry to me: Dr Claudia Welch for her brilliant insight into women’s hormones through ayurveda and chinese medicine; Dr. Reggie Ray, for his skillful teaching of body-based meditation within the Vajrayana; my teachers in the Ridhwan school (Diamond Approach) and most especially to  Angela Farmer and Victor van Kooten who have patiently pointed me back to myself as the source of yoga; and to Dr. Vasant Lad, a true vaidya (ayurvedic healer), who has shown me again and again that Love is the real healer.

Speaking of love, I have traveled all over the South Pacific and Southeast Asia and spent many months a year on the island of Bali through the 90′s where I developed a very deep connection with the people of Sayan Village near Ubud.  I am mother to a now grown son, who is also a trained yoga teacher, currently pursuing his dreams on the island of  Bali.

MY FORMAL TRAINING: In 1990, I earned a BA with honors in English Literature and Writing from the University of Washington with additional studies in western psychology and philosophy. I am a Registered Yoga Teacher with Yoga Alliance and a certified Ayurveda Practitioner. I have trained in Authentic Movement, Tibetan Buddhist Meditation and the Diamond Approach, a school of psycho-spiritual development, where I continue my studies in self-inquiry, spirituality and what it means to be a human being.

I look forward to serving you.
