Shannon Brawley has been on a somatic exploration since childhood. She believes all of life's experiences and emotions are stored within the body. When we dance and do yoga we are able to witness what arises and give it the space to move through the body and let it go. Shannon is a trained JourneyDance Guide and Yoga Alliance Certified Yoga Instructor. She has practiced West Africa, Congolese, Samba and Middle Eastern tradional dance modalities; as well as current somatic dance practices of Five Rhythms, Dancing Freedom, Soul Motion, Let Your Yoga Dance and Ecstatic Dance. Shannon’s intention is to support and inspire others in their own somatic exploration with playfulness, compassion and openess to what is.
