Shannon Connell

I started teaching yoga professionally in 2001 after years of transformation and healing from the practice. I knew that if yoga could help me then it will help others too, and I wanted to be a part of that! My experience in sharing yoga includes and extends beyond the yoga studios with teaching in medical and psychiatric facilities, group home, educational, collegiate, and corporate environments, and in retreats, teacher training, and online.

I am certified to teach Vinyasa, Power, Hot, Yin, Restorative, and Jivamukti yoga. My most influential teachers are my parents, my own practice/life, David Life and Sharon Gannon, the co-founders of Jivamukti yoga.

My interests in Reiki sparked when I began teaching yoga and over the course of 5 years of study and initiation, I certified as a traditional Usui and non-traditional Karuna Reiki Master Teacher. I have been leading certification trainings ever since, and working as a Reiki practitioner.

My love of learning and clarity for my life’s work inspired my graduate school studies. I completed my MS in Health Psychology where I focused my research on mindfulness, cognitive behavioral change, psychoneuroimmunology, stress and coping, neuroscience, and positive psychology. My studies qualified me for Psychotherapy licensure.

Post graduate school I studied and worked for Dr. Gabriel Cousens at The Tree of Life Rejuvenation Center. I learned a lot about cellular regeneration, healing and detoxification through Organic RawFoods nutrition, and I got to experience my passion for organic food cultivation working on the community farms. I love to give my body organic raw and vegan foods, and to support clients with cleansing and recipe ideas, etc.

I have always had a sense of adventure! I have learned a lot from the elements and the human body working as a raft, kayak, and climbing guide, wildland firefighter, EMT, and Ski Patrol. I have lived in several conscious communities, and devoted a year of service to the domestic peace corps, AmeriCorps *NCC.

I share more of my life lessons and the ancient, but oh so hip, teachings of yoga, Reiki, etc. in my book, The Alchemy of Yoga: A Psychology Akin to Magic.

Reiki Level 1 Certification Training

Reiki is the expression of various aspects of The Universal Energy. All Be-ings and All-things are energy moving through and experiencing form. The Human energy system has multiple levels, truths, perspectives, and misunderstandings based on conditioning. Reiki assists in healing the physiological, mental, emotional, and spiritual bodies by amplifying, healing, and balancing. Reiki is an inherent part of every one of us. Traditional Reiki was developed in the Orient during the late 1800s by Mikao Usui, who was questioned by his students as to how Jesus was able to do miraculous healings. Thus began Usui’s research into Sanskrit, Buddhism, Christianity, Theology, and the Path to Enlightenment. The lineage of Reiki can be initiated through the attunement and chakra cleansing process that is passed from Reiki Master Teacher to initiate through attunement ceremonies, education, and the revelation of the ancient Reiki symbols.

Reiki energy has an intelligence and lineage far beyond human knowledge. It is a system that is taught in a succession of classes/levels to allow the inductees an opportunity to fully integrate the new frequencies of energy they are learning to channel. If all levels were taught without allowing the 21-day chakra cleansing cycle the bodies; physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual would not sync properly. It is important to allow the bodies time to assimilate the knowledge, download the vibrations, and mentally process new perceptions, and life experiences.

Supplemental practices: Yoga, Mantra, Meditation, etc. have been added to support you throughout this training and the Reiki Attunement.
