About this experience
Yoga is one of the best tools in finding a connection between the mind, body, and heart. When a person feels this connection, it shifts the way we relate to ourselves and the world around us. Our bodies store the energy we take on in daily life and the energy can get stuck or stagnent, which is the opposite of what we want, and this can cause dis-ease in our inner and outer worlds. Yoga is an amazing release for this stored energy and the more you practice, the more your mind and body can work together to keep the flow of energy moving(we want our energy to be flowing like a river!), which leaves less time for dis-ease or disharmony to happen. Our anxiety becomes easier to manage and our love for ourself deepens, which translates into a happier life.
I have thoughtfully designed these courses to be an introduction to the very basics of understanding our energetic body. Our chakra system is a complex subtle-energy system that runs through our entire bodies(and around them), governing our major organs, glands, and muscles. My goal in using our chakra system as a guideline to organize these classes, is to bring awareness to each separate part of our bodies, relate that to our relationships to ourselves and others, and give tools to nurture each aspect.
I know, I know! That all sounds like a lot. It is based on the most ancient healing modalities around, Einsteinen theory, and quantum mechanics, but really it's about play, colors, nature, movement, laughter, and empowerment.
My background in mindfulness has allowed this class to blossom into so much more than your average kids yoga class. Each class will not only include a yoga flow with age appropriate yoga poses, but I will introduce the concepts of mindfulness and arm these kiddos with some really fun tools to notice and manage their emotions. Music, cooperative games, nature, and art are a big portion of these classes...so come prepared to have fun!

Hi friends!! My name is Shannon and I'm super glad you're here checking this out. I am a mama of two and have been yoga-ing consistently for 10 years now. My first intro to yoga was back in the high school day when my aerobics teacher started weekly yoga classes. As a normal high school student with too many life pressures, I instantly fell in love with the last asana of every yoga class, Savasana. I didn't understand it quite yet, but later I would come to learn why it's so important to find stillness during our busy lives. When my daughter was 1 year old, I found yoga again and haven't looked back. I've been a small business owner for over 11 years and enjoy gardening, painting, cooking, dancing, animals, hiking, adventuring, smiling, and ya know....life!
As a certified Kids Yoga Instructor, Mindfulness Coach, Reiki practitioner, and an herbalist in training I find great joy in helping the youngest generations reach a level of peace within their hearts that most of us don't find until it's too late. Children have this intrinsic light and love energy that is undeniable, and I want to help your kiddos and teens see this. Let's get moving and a shaking!
