About Shannon


Jivamukti / Power / Hot Yoga

Shannon is a certified Jivamukti, Power, and Hot yoga instructor.  She has been practicing yoga for over half her lifetime, is humbled by the depth of tradition, and disciplined to continue the practice.  The asana has become an art of metaphors.

Shannon has been sharing her practice and what she has learned from her teachers, David Life, Sharon Gannon, Libbie Mathis, etc., for over 15 years, and has in the past ten years incorporated her love for sharing the yoga practice into the health care system through Yampa Valley Medical Center, Denver Health, 9News Health Fairs, Centennial Peaks, Extended Hands of Hope, and working on a referral basis with private medical, integrative health, psychiatric, group homes, and chiropractic practices.

She has also incorporated her love for sharing yoga into the educational system and taught semester yoga courses at Colorado Mountain College for several years in Steamboat Springs, Colorado.  She has experience leading successful retreats and loves the opportunities for travel that yoga allows her.


Eclectic Psychotherapy

Eclectic psychotherapy selects what is valid or useful from all available theories, methods, and practices.  The eclectic approach rejects adherence to any one school or system, and instead utilizes what is most valid or relevant from the whole therapeutic spectrum.  It is composed of contributions from many different sources, used according to whether they are valid, applicable, and indicated.  The eclectic method thereby becomes a basic scientific approach to the problem or matching suitable clinical methods to the needs of specific cases.

Shannon is a Licensed Psychotherapist through the Colorado State Board of Regulatory Agencies.

Energetic Healing

Reiki is the wisdom healing tradition of channeling energy into the aura through “laying of hands” technique to assist in subtle, physical, mental/emotional, and spiritual health.  Reiki assists in identifying the roots of our problems, so as to allow us to see the lessons our life is trying to communicate to us.  Our bodies have an electro-magnetic energy field (aura) that many scientists and medical practitioners will confirm.  The aura, chakra/nadi system, and energy vortexes cannot be seen by most physical eyes, however they can definitely be sensed and seen through the disciplined clairvoyant eye.

Reiki can benefit recipients through its single-pointed focused healing intentions, practitioner touch, and attention.  Reiki has an intelligence of its own and its mysterious essence, once experienced, will calm any anxiety and apprehension of the treatment.  Reiki is an experiential healing technique.  One will not be able to know unless they try it.  Seeing and admitting the truths about ourselves, and our roles in creating our own problems is vital for our healing and a goal of the empowerment force of Reiki.
