We at Mobile Yoga Center believe that a yoga practice can and should be accessible to everyone. Whether you are a longtime practitioner or just starting out on your yoga journey, our intention and promise is to meet you where you are. Yoga is about balance, and we strive to create an experience for you that will both challenge you and help put you at ease. Our entire staff is here to welcome you and share with you the life-changing power of breath, movement and meditation. Through a combination and variety of yoga styles we would like to encourage you to explore what is right for your body each time you come to the top of your mat. For us, yoga is more than a workout, although we love to make you sweat, we are more interested in helping guide you back to the present moment and find ways to improve your life and reduce stress. Please know that you can always call with questions or feedback about your experience. We look forward to being a part of your yoga journey!
Shannon found her way to the yoga mat through a difficult health diagnosis during college, in the early 2000′s. She became a committed yoga practitioner in 2010. After graduating with a B.A. in Political Science from Samford University and working in the non-profit field, she completed her 200-hour Yoga Alliance instructor certification in 2013 at Birmingham Yoga with Akasha Ellis, and then further certification in restorative yoga, chair yoga and Reiki Level I & II. She has been fortunate to attend classes and workshops with Ralph Gates, Kino MacGregor, Taylor Hunt, and others. She teaches a variety of styles of yoga for any age, shape or size of body. Whether you need one-on-one reiki or accessible yoga lessons for a illness or injury or want a powerful workout in the Ashtanga or Vinyasa tradition, she can help you find the yoga for you.
Personally, she loves to practice kundalini and mysore. She also believes in being an active member of the community. In Birmingham, as a former board member of Sweet Om Alabama – a non-profit whose mission is to spread yoga to populations who would not normally have access otherwise – she was honored to be able to volunteer and then work with AIDS Alabama to teach yoga to those with HIV and mental illness or other disabilities as well as having experience working with a range of chronic illnesses and disorders such as, cancer, fibromyalgia, depression, bipolar and eating disorders, to name a few.
From personal experience she knows the transformative impact that yoga can have on your health and overall well-being. Her mission is to share with others the practical techniques she has learned that have helped her overcome the challenges she has faced. Shannon strives to make each class a fun, informative and a healing learning experience about life, yourself and the world around you. Much gratitude to her teachers and students for sharing this path with her, may yoga bring you much joy and many blessings!
