, Studio Owner, Vinyasa Yoga Teacher, RYT-200, POUND Pro
Elizabeth is originally from Monroeville, AL. She moved to Auburn in 2001 and graduated Auburn University in 2004. She is married to Auburn native, JM Shannon and they have two sons. She first came to yoga as a complimentary workout to running, but quickly found that yoga was the complete package.
“Yoga not only provides cardio, strengthening, and increased flexibility, it also teaches you how to focus your mind and stay grounded. That’s something we could all use in our hectic, daily lives.”
She loves teaching vinyasa flows that are on the slower side as moving slowly not only builds crazy strength, it also allows a deeper mind/body connection. You can also expect killer playlists because if she was not a yoga teacher, she would be a world renowned wedding dj.
Elizabeth Shannon instructs the following:
POUND. Rockout. Workout.
POUND is a full-body cardio jam session, combining light resistance with constant simulated drumming. The workout fuses cardio, Pilates, strength movements, plyometrics and isometric poses. Through continual upper body motion using our lightly weighted exercise drumsticks, called Ripstix, you'll turn into a calorie-torching drummer, POUNDing off pounds as each song flies by! Accessible to all ages, body types, and fitness levels!
Level 1 - Vinyasa
This class is highly recommended for anyone brand new to yoga. Here you will become comfortable in your practice as you gain knowledge of basic poses and their most fundamental alignment principles.
All Levels Vinyasa
This class offers a progressive sequence of poses where breath is linked to movement. Classes begin with simple, but dynamic postures, then gradually build to more complex poses and longer holds, eventually landing on a peak pose that the body has been adequately prepared for. Vinyasa offers endless variety, but the objective remains the same – to not only balance the body and mind, but to create a union of the two. Each flow is challenging, but accessible, balancing, lively, grounding, and playful. All levels are welcome.
If you are looking to challenge your body and refine your practice, then you should definitely come to this class! A dynamic sequence of poses will challenge the body in a fun and playful way. Expect interesting transitions from pose to pose and as you move and flow towards a somewhat more intense peak pose. If you’ve been practicing yoga for a while, but feel intimidated at the idea of a more advanced class, we invite you to show up and just do your practice. Listen to your body. Be the teacher. You never know when progression will happen, but it will happen if you keep showing up.
