Shanna Honkomp is an 800-hour Certified Jivamukti Yoga Teacher. She was introduced to yoga asana in college while pursuing a degree in dance, but didn’t discover the true power of the practice until she entered the Jivamukti Yoga School in 2007. The comprehensive teachings of the Jivamukti method ignited her desire to continue studies in yoga and Buddhism as well as eventually pursue teacher training. She completed her 300-hour Certification in 2011 and completed her 800-hour Certification in 2013 under the irreproachable guidance of Monica Jaggi.
Shanna teaches basic through advanced levels and strives to meet her students exactly where they are in their own practice. Her background in dance encourages seamless choreographic sequencing, and her love of music is evident in her thoughtful playlists. In her classes she hopes to give students the opportunity to uncover their own strength, grace, and quietude.
