After serving active duty in the U.S. Army for five years, Shannon completed a degree in Liberal Arts at the University of Missouri-Kansas City. She studied anatomy, physiology, exercise science, and gerontology. She began her career as a personal trainer, through her own struggles with stress, depression, and back pain led her to yoga. As Shannon’s pain and anxiety subsided, she added breath work, posture awareness, and slow, deep stretching to her fitness training. In 2009, under the guidance of Prana Flow teacher Gina Caputo, Shannon began her yoga teacher journey.
