Focus & Flow Foundations WORKSHOP

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. "I look forward to either guiding you or rolling out my mat beside you, sharing in sacred space very soon... Namaste."

"When I started practicing yoga, I learned quickly that there was a trendy way, and there was an effective way," says Shannon. "After experiencing some discomfort and a few injuries from yoga and various other fitness activities, I knew I had a lot to learn and decided to take a step back. Now, because of my experiences, I am able to share with you, just a some short, simple, yet profound and enlightening ideas to help you receive the message of mindful movement and the healing practice of Yoga."

Focus & Flow Foundations is our signature, technique based, workshop style yoga flow class for both the apprentice yogi and the novice; focusing on effective breath work, alignment and actions of the body, and simple meditation. In each class, we highlight an anatomical action of the body or an energetic element of the practice, discuss it, and thread it through the 60 minute class. In this 4 hour workshop, we can dig a little deeper and bring it all together for a more full integration and understanding. Shannon will outline, demonstrate and explain everything you need to know in order to experience a safe, highly effective (healing on all levels) yoga practice.

The foundations of yoga are simple, but not easy; still this class is suitable for all ages, body types, and fitness levels. There is a specific consideration to those with some restrictions or limitations, like joint sensitivity, tight hips, achy lower back, and/or old spine injuries. This class also caters to those with energetic drawbacks like, diminished self awareness, those who are self conscious and/or suffer from anxiety.

Wear comfortable clothes, bring water and a journal for notes. Bring your own mat if you have one, or you are welcome to borrow one of ours.
