Shannon fell in love with YogaKids in the year 2000. Having discovered the original YogaKids VHS tape advertised in the classified section of Yoga Journal, she ordered it for her then 2 year old, and they started practicing together! Fast forward to 2016, 4 kids and a lot of life and yoga experience later, Shannon took the plunge and registered for a Foundations training. It was everything she had hoped it would be and more! Now a CYKT, she is passionate about supporting people as they strive to live their yoga! As a home school mama and a life coach, she is no stranger to assisting people, big and small, in charting their paths and achieving their goals. She herself completed the Level 2 training in just over a month; so she definitely knows this is possible! Shannon holds BA (hons) and MA degrees in Political Science from the University of Alberta. She trained as a life coach through CoachU.  A 25 year practitioner of yoga, she is currently working to deepen her knowledge through a 200 hour adult yoga teacher training.Shannon is a “snowbird” who gratefully divides her time between Qualicum Beach, British Columbia and Palm Desert, California. She is blessed to share her life with her husband, 4 kiddos, golden retriever and grey kitty!
