Shannon Jones is a 500 Hour RYT; she is a Certified Baptiste Yoga Instructor (200RYT) and 300 Hour RYT through BHTTS. She has attended countless programs through the Baptiste Power Yoga Institute, Philip Urso, Seane Corn, and of course, BHTTS. Shannon has taught over 40,000 students at Indigo Yoga alone. She has spent years working in the service of others and is always eager to share how yoga, for her, is a way of life. She says, “the asana practice has strengthened and stretched my physical body. The meditation practice has centered and calmed me through stillness. And the inquiry practice has given me a path to seek and connect to my inner spirit and to God.”
Shannon knows from experience that using the methodology we implement in BHTTS has challenged her mind and her body and provided a catalyst for change, molding her character and softening her approach. For this reason, she is great in her role at BHTTS because she knows what to tell incoming trainees to expect with a perfect combination of compassion, fairness, and transparency.
Shannon’s main role within BHTTS is Onboarding Manager. From the moment you decide to inquire further about BHTTS, she is your “go-to”, the woman with all the answers about all the details about the program. She is there for you throughout the entire process. If this were a traditional school, you could think of Shannon as being your registrar, your advisor, your internal finance coordinator, as well as your guidance counselor for what’s next when BHTTS is over. Besides all that, she also steps in to co-facilitate training modules here and there, especially Module 4, the assisting module. When Shannon participates, students appreciate her objective, “no-nonsense” approach.
