Shannon discovered yoga in August of 2013. She felt a sense of peace, safety, internal and external healing and a deep challenge both mentally and physically with every class she took. She immediately looked forward to making it a part of her daily routine. After losing her job of 19 years and enjoying the many benefits of my practice and the inspiration of those around me, she wanted to learn more so she enrolled in Inspire Yoga training in August of 2014 and received her 200 RYT, not knowing she would begin teaching immediately thereafter. Shannon loves teaching as it affords her the opportunity to watch poses connect with the mind, body, and spirit of students. She wants people to leave their mat with a smile and look forward to rolling it out again. Outside of yoga, Shannon received my certification as MOM 20 years ago and has the privilege of raising three boys. She is honored to be a part of the SWEAT family, and is excited to guide and practice alongside this community of fellow yogis.
Shannon Lucero instructs the following:
In a flow class, postures are strung together in multiple series. As the name suggests, a practitioner can expect to “flow” from one posture to the next in this style of class, synchronizing the breath with the movement. The pace of this class is generally quicker than a static sequence, leaving less time for focus on form and alignment, but providing a vigorous cardiovascular workout. Expect up-tempo music and a more playful atmosphere. Generally, this wouldn’t be the best choice for your first yoga class, but new practitioners are always welcome. This is a great complement to a static practice because it offers variety in addition to greater focus on upper-body and core work. In the 60-minute version, expect to be on your feet almost the entire time. The 90-minute version will include a floor series. Environment – 98.6 degrees/70% humidity
In a static class, you will experience a series of postures performed individually with a short pause in between each pose. This class can be a vigorous and well-rounded workout, but is also very appropriate for beginners. It will provide both the new and advanced practitioners with a solid foundation that is useful in other classes offered at SWEAT. Expect a lot of feedback on proper form and alignment. Approximately 2/3 of each class will consist of standing poses, with the remaining 1/3 of class being spent on the floor. Environment – 98.6 degrees/70% humidity
