OM Festival – Shannon Liebel
OM Festival – Shannon Liebel , In her youth, Shannon trained in artistic and acrobatic gymnastics and competed at the elite and international level. Shannon received a BA in Psychology and MA in Clinical Counseling. When she discovered yoga in 2005, it was the perfect balance of the mental work she enjoyed in Psychology and the physical movement of the body that she loved in gymnastics. Shannon received her RYT 200 with Yax Yoga Concepts in 2012 and began teaching right away, and then opened her studio in Lake Tahoe in 2016. Nine months after the studio opened, Shannon had open heart surgery and this experience only strengthened her belief in the power of yoga. In 2018, she furthered her education and trained in Thailand with Beyond Bryce to receive her RYT 500, and also received her FRCms with Functional Anatomy seminars later that year. Shannon strongly believes in the connection between mind, body, and soul, and this reflects in her Vinyasa style teaching. She is the owner of Still Water Yoga Lake Tahoe, LLC, teaches daily classes, facilitates workshops and yoga teacher trainings, runs international yoga retreats around the world, and teaches at a variety of yoga festivals on the West Coast.
