Contact:Shannon Thornton
I have been teaching yoga since 2008 and practicing yoga for 14 years. I completed my RYT (Yoga Alliance Registered Yoga Teacher) certification in 2007, and in addition to my private instruction practice, have taught classes at Gold’s Gym, CHI Studio, GoYoga, Tsada Yoga, Dirt Cheap Yoga, Cosmic Café, and Lakewood Montessori School. My instructional style incorporates a strong foundation and emphasis on safe alignment, supportive use of props, and anatomical precision along with slower heat-building flow sequences. I also incorporate pranayama (breath regulation) and meditation in all of my sessions, encouraging my students to develop an internal awareness that focuses and calms the mind both on and off the mat.

My personal yoga practice and my teaching philosophy both work toward one goal: the union of mind, body and breath that develops physical and emotional ease and self-awareness. I earned my PhD in Folklore and Mythology from UCLA in 1999, and currently devote my creative energies to studying and writing about the connections between analytical or depth psychology and yoga. My primary interest is in understanding the relationship between mental and emotional stress and their expression in physical symptoms, and the use of yoga and meditation to address disease, undiagnosed pain, depression, PTSD and other ailments.

I offer private yoga classes to individuals and groups all over Dallas, including East Dallas, Deep Ellum, Uptown/Oaklawn, the Park Cities and Downtown.
