Learn from a curious, seeker of her own inner world.

Shannon Nelson

Owner, RYT 200 Yoga Teacher, Reiki Level II Practitioner

Shannon began practicing yoga in college, as a way to stretch out her body after running many miles as a Division I Cross Country and Track Athlete at Lehigh University. After winning a Conference Championship Title in the 3,000m Steeplechase race and graduating, Shannon journeyed alone to India to study yoga, meditation, and eastern philosophy more deeply. It was through this transformative experience, studying ancient Himalayan Hatha Yoga with her teacher Yogi Ram, that she knew she had found her life calling. 

Shannon has been teaching yoga and meditation throughout Monmouth County to adults and adolescents for the past 3 years in parks, mental health centers, studios, and with athletic teams. She has over 1000 hours of training, holding 200 hr teacher training certification from the Himalayan Yoga Ashram, 600 hours of independent study abroad, 30 hour Teen Yoga Teaching Certification from NYC Karma Kids Yoga, 20 hour Certification in Mental Health Issues. 

Shannon's class themes are based off her own understanding of the practice, often related to becoming more present, understanding the mind, and connecting to our deeper sense of Self, to name a few. She believes our inward journey, is the most important journey we take during our lifetime.
