You can!  By learning the daily habits of Ayurveda, these aspects of health take root and flower. These time-tested habits have been practiced and refined for 5,000 years and they work.

In this year-long course, you’ll learn, practice, and eventually automate 10 habits that will improve your energy and sleep, stabilize your ideal weight, strengthen your immunity, balance your mood and support your growth and development in relationship with others, spirit and with yourself.

Imagine how good you could feel in a year if you were consistently improving your habits day by day.

These habits have the power to change the very trajectory of your life.

The course is delivered over zoom, with 3 regularly scheduled meetings each month on Wednesday evenings. Each meeting is recorded and made available to members, so you can’t miss anything.

What is your good health worth to you?


What is it costing you to…

      • Spin your wheels getting your daily habits in place?
      • Take expensive pharmaceutical drugs that you know aren’t getting to the bottom of your problem?
      • Stay stuck in patterns of numbing out, self-forgetting, or self-sabotage?
      • Ignore your deeper needs?


Are you ready for a REAL change??




Give yourself the support and guidance you need to make the changes you’ve been wanting to make.

 The key isn’t learning not to fall down, the key is learning how to get up and move forward when you do fall.

Ayurveda evolved to help us balance our unique organisms (mind, body, spirit) in response to changing environments (seasons, life-stages, work, relationships).  The simple practices work, and folks feel a positive difference right away.

This is NOT about fixating on protocols (perfectionism) but on allowing the habits to support you in getting back into deeper body/mind/soul integrity–listening to and making sense of the messages your body gives you. Along the way, you’ll meet your resistances, everything that stands between where you are now and where you want to be. Together, with the support of a dynamic group moving in the same direction you are, the wisdom teachings of ayurveda and the witnessing and guidance of one just a bit ahead on this path, you’ll let go of what stops you, and make changes, living into the life you most want for yourself, one step at a time. This is empowering. Your body/mind/soul does know how to heal and harmonize. Ayurveda offers the teachings that help lead the way back home.

What Members say:

“Shannon established trust well at the outset with her compassionate, realistic and gentle approach. I was drawn to the skills in working with people who want to go deeper, which I have witnessed in other settings. She gave me very personal direction from the beginning and I felt quite connected to her and cared for, which kept me engaged. She navigated my doubts, struggle, and frustration by bringing me back to myself each time and affirming feelings and always accepting and affirming just where I was at. The pace of her course is superb–as the “proper” pace of life, with enough time and space for all that inevitably arises with the group. I loved all the exploration that was spurred on by other members’ struggles and successes that I resonated with and also those which expanded my perspective and aroused compassion…all from the space Shannon maintained. Through it all Shannon is very professional and always the leader, maintaining enough distance to maintain our respective roles and things are always clear and straight forward with no blur or uncertainty. As the yoga and meditation aspect, that could be another essay–it’s clearly her gift and calling to share and engage others through these practices. They are varied, grounded in self-love always, and when are deeply received, exquisite.” -2019-2020 Member

“Shannon is inspirational and deeply committed to sharing her experience in ways that are useful to each participant. She is a deep listener, curious and deeply committed to being in the service of each of us. She is resilient and this is more important now than ever. The overall experience is nuanced and yet experimental. I love that aspect of working with Shannon.” -2019 -2020 Member

“I wanted to send an email to you to let you know how this program has changed my life. I think of the world very differently in general now, not just my body but everything beyond me too. I’m not getting everything right but I am more aware than I have ever been about the choices I make. Thank you for your guidance and teaching. I’m moving toward the goals on my “What and why” list and enjoying the progress that I can already see. I also notice that I bring something different to those around me. My energy is changing and it’s so exciting and satisfying to experience these changes.” -2020 Member
