She has been sharing her love and passion for yoga with all ages since completing her first yoga teacher training (230 hours) over a decade ago. Since that time, she has continued to study and delve deeper into the science of yoga, subsequently completing her 500 hour yoga teacher training in 2013 and 95 hour kids yoga teacher training in 2014. Ever a student who craves knowledge and growth, Shona has studied with many amazing teachers over the years.
Shona offers teacher trainings and workshops to help others dive deeper into their yoga and to connect deeper with themselves. She is a lead trainer and Co-creator in Twist Kids Yoga (www.twistkidsyoga.com), a Yoga Alliance registered children's yoga school, and a Life Power Yoga teacher training faculty at Life Time Athletic Charlotte (NC). Shona teaches regular adult and children’s classes in and around the Charlotte area. In 2021, Shona helped found Twist Kids Foundation (www.twistkidsfoundation.org), a non-profit based in Charlotte committed to bringing mindfulness and yoga to children regardless of ethnicity, gender or socioeconomic status.
Shona enjoys creating beautiful sequences that bring a sense of balance to her students. In her classes you will find laughter and smiles, but also guidance on how to consciously create each posture and transverse each movement, taking your practice to a deeper place. She will challenge you with encouragement and kindness. Inspired by the mindfulness movement, she introduces the more introspective aspects of yoga to take it beyond the physical. You will leave her classes feeling grounded and calm; feeling strong and flexible; feeling rejuvenated yet, relaxed.
