Shannon B.

Shannon Burns, a double WAHOO, has lived in Charlottesville for 20+ years. She has practiced yoga for over 10 years, and completed her 200 hour yoga teacher training through FlyDog Yoga in March 2016.
As a Nurse Practitioner, she uses her care, knowledge and understanding of the human body to bring calmness and strength to the body through support and empowerment.
During a Power Vinyasa class, Shannon hopes to motivate students to gain confidence, knowledge, and connect to the mind & body in a kind hearted and nonjudgemental way. Shannon discovered the benefits of yoga practice during a crazy, yet exciting stage of parenting and life. After years of running half marathons and being a gym rat, she decided to see what would happen if she took 25 classes in 30 days at FlyDog, and has never looked back- HOOKED. Yoga continues to bring balance into Shannon’s life, and she hopes to help you discover all of your possibilities in one of her classes!

Shannon B. instructs the following:
  • Power Vinyasa (Heated)
  • Power Vinyasa ALL LEVELS. This dynamic, energizing and challenging style of yoga links breath and movement through a basic Power Yoga framework combining sun salutations, standing postures and floor work but each teacher brings their own creative touch. The smooth, continuous flow deepens the breath, develops core strength, increases endurance and challenges balance and flexibility. You will leave these classes with a renewed mental and physical energy. The room is heated between 85 and 90 degrees.

  • Myofascial Release
  • Join Shannon for a Myofascial Release Workshop.

    Fascia is the connective tissue in our bodies, which gives us support, mobility and flexibility. When fascia becomes restricted, it can cause pain and limited range of motion.

    This interactive workshop will provide hands on instruction. We will use tools such as foam rollers, sports balls and stretches to release fascial restrictions.

    From this workshop you will learn:

    -Learn valuable myofascial soft tissue release techniques for your entire body that will produce immediate therapeutic results.

    -Identify tight fascia and apply self myofascial mobilization techniques to the upper and lower extremities, and acquire tools for integrating self myofascial release at home to decrease muscular pain while increasing flexibility.

    -Find increased ease in your asana practice and beyond, through self myofascial release.

    Props needed: Yoga Mat. We will provide the rollers, yoga blocks, and balls.

    Price: $15

    This class will take place at our new FlyDog Yoga Training and Events center at 2125 Ivy Rd. Next to Bill Burnette Success Studio.

    ***Registration Cancellation Policy: Registration cancellation requests must be made 48 hours prior to the event to be eligible for refunds in the form of credit for retail, future workshops or classes.

  • Heated Vinyasa
  • Heated Vinyasa ALL LEVELS. This can be a moderate to high intensity class which links breath to movement to get the heart rate up and to work the student toward a peak pose or sequence through balance, innovation, and technique. Vinyasa Flow will help to develop physical and mental strength and will lead a gradual physical and mental opening. Sequencing will vary with instructor. The room is heated between 80 and 85 degrees.
