Yoga Basics

This class is taught by:

Shannon Smith

200 RYT
Shannon's yoga journey began as a continuing education class.  Being a licensed and practicing Physical Therapy Assistant for 28 years, she thought yoga would bring an extra benefit to her patients.  Boy was she surprised when it was her that benefited the most!!
After practicing at Synergy for about 3 years and with the mentoring from Betsey Williams, she decided to get her 200 hour RYT from Rasika Yoga School in Cornelius and Columbia completing it in November of 2016.  This alignment based style of yoga fits perfectly with her PT training and allows ANY and EVERY body a chance to participate and learn the amazing benefits of a yoga practice.  She can work with students who have a variety of injuries to modify a practice that is safe and effective.

Cindy Bickman

I began practicing yoga at Kripalu Yoga Center when I was in high school. There was something so compelling about the way people moved and interacted there - a sense of calm and openness that I was drawn to. I began practicing yoga regularly in my 30s and became a certified yoga teacher in 2010. I love teaching yoga because I learn something new every day through my interactions with students, other teachers, and my studies of yoga texts. My classes always include pranayama and focus on mindful and intuitive movement. As we connect with our breath, we find the union of mind, body and spirit, and that's when the magic happens both on and off the mat! When I'm not practicing or teaching yoga, I love to go for hikes, run with my running group, and snuggle up at home with my husband, kids and cockapoo Snow.
