Shannon Carlin.jpg

Shannon Carlin visited ashrams with her parents as a child and then many years later, found herself in a yoga class one day.  Though unfamiliar with the poses, the breath, and of course-sanskrit, she immediately felt a sense of belonging and of coming home.  The experience resonated so deeply with her that she knew she had taken her first steps on a life-long path of study, practice and devotion. In between the movement of your breath and body, her classes will help you find an ever-evolving sense of connection to the most authentic parts of yourself and a deeper sense of engagement with the world around you. Shannon is completing her 500hr advanced training with Tiffany Cruikshank of Yoga Medicine, and continues to study philosophy with Dr. Douglas Brooks.

Darby Canessa.jpg

Dancer, Choreographer, and Yoga Teacher Darby Canessa
In my experience, Yoga and Dance complement one another. There are common elements in each form, such as the relationship between the body and the mind, the awareness of what is happening within and around the body, the focus, the dedication, the receptiveness, the wholeness, the fulfillment, and the ability to experience life with an open spirit. Yoga and Dance encourage me to stay curious, and to keep the channel open.
