About Shannon


Jivamukti / Power / Yin / Hot Yoga

Shannon is a certified Jivamukti, Power, Yin, Restorative, and Hot yoga instructor.  She has been practicing yoga for over 25 years, 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 20 years, and has in the past 12 years incorporated her love for sharing the yoga and meditation 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 for 7 years at Colorado Mountain College in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. She has experience leading successful retreats and loves the opportunities for travel that yoga allows her. Shannon is planning international retreats for 2020 and has just completed her first book titled, The Alchemy of Yoga: A Psychology Akin to Magic , which will be published in 2020, and available through this website. You can also find several of Shannon’s publications on topics such as yoga, psychology, human development, philosophy, health, news, nutrition, etc. on platforms of Yoga Download and Sivana East. Stay tuned for more meditations, guided yoga classes, and online courses presenting in 2020.

Shannon has been teaching on the front range since 2012 after teaching yoga for over a year at The Tree of Life Rejuvenation Center in Arizona. She commits to Boulder, Colorado as her home base and can be found at several local studios offering weekly classes. See yoga schedule for details.


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.
