Shannon Clulow is a lifelong athlete who had been practicing yoga since 

2000. Shannon holds a Bachelor's Degree in Art History

and has recently completed advanced 

coursework in Health & Wellness and Anatomy &

Physiology. A former gymnast & coach, she was initially attracted to the 

physicality of yoga, but quickly discovered the benefits of injury prevention,

learning to breathe, focus, reduce stress, de-clutter, and embrace the yoga 

philosophy both on and off the mat. Shannon also finds that yoga is the perfect

complement to distance running, another favorite pastime.

Kate Connor, owner of Zen Fitness, introduced her to BarreAmped and Shannon 

realized it was just the challenging workout she had been looking for. She became

certified to teach BarreAmped in September 2013.  Shannon has also completed her 200 RYT training through Lezlie Ward and Yoga from the Heart.
