About Shannon: Shannon Burns, RYT 500/E-RYT 200, is the founder of Salute The Sun Yoga. Previously, Shannon was the Lead Vinyasa Yoga Teacher at FlyDog Studio in Charlottesville, Virginia and taught for 5+ years at the studio. Shannon is a double graduate from the University of Virginia (BSN & MSN/FNP), and has lived in Charlottesville for 20+ years. She has practiced yoga since 1996, and completed 200 & 300 hour yoga teacher training at FlyDog Yoga. Shannon is a Tier 1 Certified Baptiste Yoga Leader. She takes special interest in self myofascial release, and enjoys seeing the calming effects of this release in her students at her workshops. In July 2020, Shannon was appointed a @Lululemon Ambassador.
She is also certified in teaching barre, power sculpt, Yin yoga, completed the Social Impact Training, #Unstoppable & #Unbreakable training with Baptiste Yoga and has facilitated the “40 Days to a Personal Revolution” program twice. Shannon also teaches stand up paddle board yoga. She created a yoga program for the Boys & Girls Club Southwood, in Charlottesville and has also led a free series of “yoga for anxiety and depression” and has worked with University of Virginia athletes to complement their sport. She hopes to find herself immersing in the Cville community more in the future, in hopes of reaching more diverse populations and identifying where yoga is needed most. Most recently, she completed “LSD (Long, Slow, Deep)” training, a Bryan Kest sequence that is a series of holding long, steady, releasing poses in the hips & lower body.
As a Nurse Practitioner, Shannon uses her care, knowledge and understanding of the human body to bring calmness, compassion and strength to the body through support and empowerment. Shannon is known for holding students into the depth of poses to really help them land into their bodies and observe what is happening on the mat. During a Vinyasa class, that is beginner friendly, Shannon hopes to motivate students to gain confidence, knowledge, and connect to the mind & body in a kind hearted and non judgmental 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 yoga classes in 30 days back in 2015, and has never looked back- HOOKED. Yoga continues to bring balance into Shannon’s life, and she hopes to inspire others to discover all of your possibilities in one of her classes!
