Testimonials

“Yoga with Shawn is a great opportunity to practice being attentive to the present moment.  In his classes, I find that I am not thinking about the past or future, only  the subtleties of the interplay between the physical and energetic components of my experience.  His fine-tuned awareness and love of this interplay provides a very healing, opening environment.”

“I have experienced more with Prana in the last 6 weeks with you, than I have in my 20plus years of being with other Yoga teachers. You remind me a great deal of my time with Rod Stryker.”

“I joined Shawn’s yoga class after seeing him as a client, and now one and a half years later I am strong, healthy, and flexible in a way I have not been in years.  Did I mention I am 67 years old?”

“Shawn uses his extensive training as a physical therapist in combination with equally extensive training in yoga asanas to create a class which gently improves your strength, balance and posture. His emphasis on leg and foot work is unique in Southern Oregon. If you are mostly interested in posture, strength and grounding verses a vigorous yoga class – you’ll truly enjoy what he offers.

Hatha Yoga

Shawn’s teachings follow the traditional teachings of Hatha Yoga. The practice is not an exercise program, but rather a means to promote the foundations in body & mind, necessary for counteracting the spiritual energies. The practice, therefore, also cultivates foundations for balanced living with life’s daily demands.

Hatha Yoga is considered the safest, least risky, practice that prepares the body & mind for the subtle and demanding practices – pranayama and meditation. Purification and Disciple are the primary objectives of Hatha Yoga.

“Hatha Yoga is a system of self-cultivation by which the individual frees oneself from the burden of the world and its bondage.” (Zhander Remete, Shadow Yoga)

Inspired and infused with the wisdom from his teachers, Scott Blossom, Zhander Remete, & Emma Balvanes, Shawn offers insightful and playful yoga classes to all ages for the purpose of cultivating foundations, fluidity, ease, and a receptive mind through every stage of life.

Of note: Shawn’s classes are not a substitute for a student’s individual therapeutic needs. His teachings address circulation and awareness with movement, and are an approach to enhance these qualities which opens doors to one’s own healing potential. It is important to acknowledge limitations with Shawn, and move in accordance with those limitations, and address personal therapeutic needs in private sessions.
