Jo Shannon

Jo has been interested in yoga since her 20s, attending classes, on and off, alongside her work as a dancer, actor and musician. Jo has also taught all three performing arts disciplines across a broad age range, from toddler dance and adult theatre improvisation to instrumental lessons for young musicians. As Co-Director of Big Theatre, a theatre company for young people, she has spent 10 years working with teenagers and enjoying their particular brand of energy. It was from this starting point that Jo decided to train as a Teen Yoga teacher. After discovering Wendy Snongjati’s yoga classes, she found the yoga training that she wanted and is now keen to share yoga with teenagers, knowing that it was something that she would have loved when she was that age. Jo aims to make her classes flowing, challenging, strengthening and toning, with the intention of increasing physical confidence and well-being. All teenagers are welcome.

Jo trained with the Teen Yoga Foundation and Pure Light Yoga School and is a member of Yoga Alliance Professionals.
