A True Passion for Yoga.
Shawn began practicing yoga in 2006. In the fall of 2013, she attended Ashtanga Vinyasa Flow Instructor Training in Las Vegas, Nevada, instructed by Shawn Hughes at Summerlin Yoga. In May, 2015, she completed her 200 hour Teacher Training in Shambhava Yoga instructed by Satyam Ehinger & Abhaya Goldstein at the Shambhava Konalani Ashram, Kona, Hawaii. In the summer of 2015 she attended Yoga for Teens Instructor Training at YogaMinded instructed by Christy Brock Miele in San Juan Capistrano, California, and in December 2015 she returned to Shambhava Yoga Konalani to attend Upper Level III Teacher Training and Vinyasa Flow Teacher Training.
Shawn attended teacher training to deepen her own practice. Over the years Yoga helped her physically by improving her strength, flexibility, balance and stamina. More importantly, it was reducing anxiety, stress and improving her mental clarity. After gaining knowledge about the benefits of yoga through teacher training’s and her own personal practice she is now interested in sharing with others.
Her mission is to work with teens, beginners as well as advanced students who wish to practice in a private setting or smaller group classes. She also offers workshops on proper alignment, yoga retreats and yoga parties. Shawn organizes and host retreats in Laguna Beach, California and Kona, Hawaii.
Shawn will offer a welcoming, fun environment as she eases you into feeling comfortable on the mat. Her classes and workshops will focus on proper alignment, vinyasa flow, relaxation and breath awareness.
A very special thank you to Mike Ibasco, Shawn’s trainer for many years before discovering yoga. He taught her the importance of physical fitness and gave her the courage to attend her first yoga class.
Also, a special thanks to all the Yoga Teacher Training Instructors mentioned above for your knowledge, patience and support.
