Sheldon Shannon

Sheldon is one of Toronto’s most in demand instructors. A natural born athlete, Sheldon came to the practice with a rebellious and playful energy. With a passion for cycling and a childhood of competitive gymnastics, Sheldon was immediately drawn to the powerful Ashtanga yoga method and began a committed practice in 2007. Ashtanga’s rhythmic breathing, challenging vinyasa and meditative quality had a powerful effect on Sheldon and the daily practice led him face to face with himself; a profound journey within.

He is known for his vigorous classes, creative sequencing and unwavering dedication to both his personal practice and his role as a teacher. Sheldon teaches vigorous and dynamic Vinyasa classes that focus on building strength, increasing flexibility and he encourages his students to push the boundaries of their own limitations. Known for running a tight ship and holding students to the same standard he sets for himself, his classes are powerful, fun and challenging.

In addition to leading group classes, Sheldon provides one on one sessions to students of all ages. Sheldon is an E-RYT 500 with Yoga Alliance, and a core faculty member of the Downward Dog Yoga Centre 200 hour Vinyasa teacher training.
