What can YOGA do for YOU?
Body by body, day by day, yoga teacher Shannon Basham meets her students where they are— beginner or advanced, younger or older, flexible or not-so-flexible.
Shannon knows from her own 17 years of practice that yoga is not a one-size-fits-all proposition. With this in mind, she offers classes in
Private sessions are also available to help individuals or couples focus on specific goals.
All classes emphasize breathing!
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 focused her studies on anatomy, physiology, fitness, nutrition and gerontology. She began her career as a personal trainer, though her own struggles with stress, depression and back pain led her to yoga. As Shannon’s pain and anxiety subsided, she began to add 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 own journey to become a yoga teacher—even though she has very tight hamstrings!
Shannon’s classes are playful yet educational, integrating the yoga practice with real-life challenges and experiences. Her knowledge of anatomy and physiology informs her teaching, and she guides students to explore the rhythm of breath while maintaining safe alignment. Shannon brings a love of service to her teaching, and enjoys watching the transformation that occurs with regular practice.
Shannon is an E-RYT 500, her Advanced Yoga Training was completed through Colorado School of Yoga, http://coloradoschoolofyoga.org with Gina Caputo in 2013. She holds certifications in Restorative Yoga from Judith Lasater and Chair yoga and specific yoga training for people living with disabilities from Liz Franklin and Joann Lyons. Shannon completed her Level 1 Mindful Resilience Training through Veterans Yoga Project in February of 2015 and has started two weekly classes at the Kansas City Vet Center. For the past five plus years, Shannon has taught yoga, meditation and fitness classes at Stowers Institute for Medical Research, Fairway Parks and Recreation and at the University of Kansas, Landon Center on Aging in addition to her private students.
