What to Expect
There will be sweat, ALOT of muscle strengthening, stretching, occasional varts and lotsa laughter. Overall a bloody good refreshing yoga practice on the Isle of Wight.
"Shennon is an excellent and inspiring teacher. She pushes you to your limit (in a nice way), so that you achieve and hold postures that you didn't think you could, making you stronger, more flexible and ultimately relaxed. She also has a lovely sense of humour!" ~ Cherry
I have started my passion for yoga since I was little girl (like you do!), watching my mum trying out cool poses after a tiring day at work and witnessing how happy she would be after every class- that's when I ask if I could attend an extra party in the month!
I graduated from my (everyday) ashtanga teacher training in 2010, met my lovely husband and decided Isle of Wight is the perfect pIace to relocate from SUNNYPORE (Singapore)- actually my husband is from here hence we were just moving back... perfect? I would say it's near perfect.
I have been lucky enough to be acquainted with amazing kind hearted, understanding yoga teachers on the island and am now teaching in Ventnor Botanic Garden every Saturday - prime time 9.30am.
when Bestival was still on the island, I had the privilege to teach a few classes then (thanks to Kali!). It was great, trying to practice yoga with teens who were tipsy or nursing a hang over! We had so much giggles and looks of "How long can you stay in that pose without falling over with a loud thud"
I have an amazing group of regular yogis whom I have learn to grow with spiritually and believe it or not!? they have given me as much support and love as much as I have given them pain!😁✌️
I would say I do like a challenge and that transpires in my teaching. Empathy is my strength and at the same time I believe that our body & mind are robust hence the integration of a couple of challenging asanas(just a couple!). my thoughts are, I would very much like you to experience the benefits of yoga in your everyday life. EVERYONE is different and EVERYONE feels differently everyday, every hour. I respect that.
Admittedly, my class is challenging but rewarding. Designed as an immersion of Ashtanga-style practice and MUST be incorporated with Fun, Laughter and Endurance, this class is suitable for everyone with an open mind and a smiley face. Having the garden as a backdrop, nothing compares to the combination of nature, yoga and (simply!) breathing. I invite you to take a break from the buzz of everyday life and instead have fun on a Saturday morning in this nourishing practice. 💕
See you on the mat!
