Shannon began teaching Pilates in 2002 in Big Bear, where she was mentored under a local Stott Instructor and immediately fell in love with the workout and the results.
After getting her associates degree she took a few months off and traveled Europe, backpacking over 13 countries, making amazing memories and coming home with a new perspective on life. After returning Shannon went to Long Beach and became trained in Stott Pilates mat, an intensive two month training, with at minimum of 6 months teaching and training hours. She then moved to Costa Mesa to attend Vanguard University and worked at South County Pilates.
In 2009 Shannon went back to Long beach to become trained on the reformer and taught mat and reformer for several years in Orange County and loved it.
She then moved to Texas, where her husband was stationed, and taught Pilates for the city of Killeen Rec. Center. After her husband’s contract with the Army ended they moved back to Big Bear where Shannon now enjoys the quieter life teaching Pilates at BodyTek and raising four babies.
