PūrYoga began as a peaceful dream inside the heart of Shannon Shugart. She envisioned a serene suburban oasis where individuals from all walks of life could enter and experience compassion, a sense of community and personal encouragement to be their ultimate best in body, mind and spirit.
PūrYoga is a tranquil place to relax, heal, rejuvenate and simply breathe. Think of it as your home away from home. You will discover a variety of yoga and fitness classes designed to meet your needs, regardless of your age or fitness level. Classes range from beginner to advanced. Our rooms are spacious, comfortable, pristine and eco-conscious.
Shannon found her path 17 years ago and has been a devoted, passionate advocate for yoga ever since. She has experienced first-hand the power of yoga to not only strengthen the body and clarify the mind, but to bring forth the fullness of one’s authenticity, integrity, self-expression and inner truth.
Shannon’s style of teaching is derived from extensive studies. She has trained under Tami Schneider of Cleveland Yoga (RYT 200 hours); Baptiste Yoga Art of Assisting Program; Tami Schneider (Cleveland Yoga) and Paige Elenson (Nairobi, Kenya); Baron Baptiste Foundations in Action; Philip Urso, Deborah Williamson and Stacy Dockins of Live Love Teach (RYT 500 hours). She has completed the Teacher’s Assistant Training Program under Deborah Williamson, and has studied with Sharon Trull of Childlight Yoga, Katy Stahl of Shanti Mom Prenatal Yoga and Michelle Dortigna of Unnata® Aerial Yoga. Shannon is grateful for all of her teachers past, present and every teacher who has ever graced her with their inner light in her regular yoga practice over the past 19 years; her greatest inspirations are her family, friends and students.
Shannon has been a yoga instructor since May 2011 in various locales around northeastern Ohio and Sharon, Pennsylvania, as well as offering private classes in clients’ homes and teaching Assisting Programs in several teachers’ trainings.
