My name is Shannon Sonnier. I am a registered yoga teacher with Yoga Alliance at the 200 hour level. I am also a continuing education provider for Yoga Alliance. I am certified as an Ayurvedic Yoga Specialist. The wisdom of ayurveda has been a tremendous gift in my life. Yoga and ayurveda are my passions and a way of life.
After years of teaching and practicing yoga I have developed my own teaching style that meets students where they are at in their journey. I have over eleven years of experience teaching a variety of classes and to various levels of students. I have had to learn how to make the physical practice adaptable to anyone that is in front of me. I believe it is important to incorporate the philosophy of yoga into the classes that I teach so students understand how that applies to their lives off of the mat. After all yoga is an integrative system that addresses the needs of the individual as a whole being body, mind and spirit. As life is ever changing we must grow and change with it. Our yoga practice should support and nurture us as we grow and change.
