Focus & Flow Foundations Yoga


This class is taught by:

Shannon Kidwell

Creator/Director/Instructor of Core Integrated Alignment Yoga, Studio Co-Owner, Advisory Board Director, Brand Creator/Author/Speaker & Event Host for Fit Piglet's Freshitarian Lifestyle

 

Shannon's enthusiasm for wellness comes from a life long struggle with genetics and weight loss. Scaling her heaviest at just over 200 pounds in 1995, she has been working hard to maintain her healthy lifestyle, and inspiring others to love themselves enough to want to feel good and thrive. Previously, an avid runner and intense weight lifter, She has reconciled her intentions to finding a deeper inner peace and genuine presence, by reducing mental and emotional stress and unwinding physical tension with the self reflective, deeply transformational, healing practices of yoga. Shannon Kidwell, developed the brand, Core Integrated Alignment Yoga, to share how moving the body intelligently allows any level of practitioner, applying the appropriate anatomical actions to yoga asana, to receive the full physiological benefits of the practice, with a very reduced risk of injury. She is a Master Pilates & Yoga Instructor and Educator, Personal Trainer, Lifestyle Coach, Leadership Development Trainer, Freshitarian Certified Chef, Nutritional Counselor, and Author of Fit Piglets, Your Guide to the Freshitarian Lifestyle. She is looking forward to meeting you and is honored to share her excitement and experience at Camp NamaStay in St Augustine coming this October (4 day event) and then aboard the Celebrity Equinox in January 2018, (4 day event). Contact us for details! 

Karen Chase

Certified Core Integrated Alignment Yoga Instructor, Senior Student Teacher Mentor, Advisory Board Member
 
Karen's relationship with yoga began in 2007 while she was pregnant with her second child, Finn. With an emergent toddler at home, she looked forward to the beautiful space cultivated during yoga, allowing her time to connect with her baby boy in utero, while reaping the physical, emotional and spiritual benefits of practice. Though the demands of her expanding family caused a temporary “breakup” with yoga, Karen eventually returned to her practice as a compliment to her fitness regimens and was happy to finally introduce yoga to her family.
Karen began her teaching practice during her YTT program with CoreWorks Institute, and then immediately following graduation, she joined the Sweetwater Yoga Teaching Tribe. Karen believes very strongly in the power of yoga to be a catalyst to both physical and emotional healing as well as to foster a greater spiritual connection. Karen gears her classes to all levels and uses an empowering approach which allows practitioners the opportunity to fully explore all dimensions of yoga in a compassionate and nurturing environment while honoring their individual needs and desires.
Karen is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor with almost 10 years experience in providing hospice care. She embraces the beautiful irony of leaving a career which supported people on a path to a pain-free, peaceful, and dignified death to helping people live a full and vibrant life through the ancient and honorable practice of yoga. Off the mat, Karen enjoys multiple forms of fitness; spending time with her husband Leif and their three children; photography; live music; gardening; and the art of Zendoodle.
A technique based, workshop style flow class for both the apprentice yogi and the novice; focusing on effective breath work, alignment and actions of the body, and simple meditation. All ages, fitness levels, shapes and sizes welcome!
