Yoga2-webFrame“Shannel Trudeau-Yancey’s yoga class is perfect for beginners as well as students who’ve taken yoga classes before. Her sensitivity and expert training make each class a delight. Weekly, since fall of 2011, I’ve looked forward to not just the yoga practice, but the atmosphere created by Shannel’s uplifting sensibilities, her humor and attention to our practice.  There’s no pressure or competition, it’s go at your own pace, listen to your body. In the fall of 2011, when I started yoga as a middle-aged woman with back problems (who’d never taken a yoga class before), I wasn’t sure what to expect. But I have been truly amazed and look forward to each class. Daily I am reminded of improvements in my posture, flexibility plus, an awareness and general feeling of well-being and optimism. I highly recommend Shannel’s class to anyone who has never taken yoga and even to people who have.  After one class with Shannel, I’m sure you will agree!” -Andrea Thalasinos

“New to the art of yoga, I found this beginning series to be a fun experience, as well as a wonderfully challenging introduction! With Shannel’s depth of the material, exquisite instruction and her intuitive understanding of how people learn, I have been able to feel and understand the essential connection between my mind and my body. I didn’t realize just how important proper breathing and alignment are within my daily life and now see the true potential of a continued practice.  I can honesty say that, this class has opened me up physically and mentally while changing my life in the process.” -Christian A.
