Introduction: Shannon Dawn Snapp is a psychology professor, yoga and meditation teacher, and reiki master teacher. Since 2007, she has taught mindfulness to youth and adults across the U.S. and in Asia. Her mindfulness practice led her to yoga, and in the summer of 2016, she completed a 200-hour Yoga Teacher Certification in Hatha Yoga at the Ayur-Yoga Eco Ashram in Karnataka, India. She has taught yoga to diverse communities, including foster youth, college students, and elders. Shannon is also a reiki master teacher and practitioner. She has offered reiki to clients in private sessions, healing circles, yoga classes, and retreats, and she teaches reiki level 1 and 2. These healing modalities are enriched by Shannon’s academic work. She has a Ph.D. in Psychology and is an assistant professor at California State University Monterey Bay (CSUMB) where she teaches Social Psychology & Social Justice and "How to Love" on the art and science of love and intimacy. In her research, she explores sociocultural supports for underrepresented youth. She lives in San Francisco and teaches in the various Bays. I see reiki, yoga, and meditation as tools to heal and awaken my clients to their True Nature, which is all loving and at ease. I appreciate watching clients' faces "light up" after a session.

Private Yoga Instruction

I've been doing weekly private yoga sessions with Shannon for 3 months. I sought out private sessions in my home because I work at home and it was too disruptive to try to go to a class in the middle of my work day. After factoring in roundtrip travel time, time to park, etc., the advantages of in-home yoga became clear. More importantly, however, I sustained an injury in a previous yoga class and wanted to ease back into yoga in a carefully supervised setting. Shannon is the real deal. She trained in an immersive yoga program in India and understands and embraces the spiritual and meditative aspects of yoga, as originally taught over the centuries. She is not a product of the ubiquitous Western yoga school that cranks out teachers on an assembly line, and her skill level and teaching style reflect the depth and quality of her training and commitment to teaching and practicing yoga. Finally, Shannon is able to skillfully adapt her sessions to accommodate my physical limitations. I'm working on flexibility, am very tight (hamstrings of concrete), but Shannon easily adapts to meet my circumstances in a safe, supportive and kind-hearted manner.

Shannon introduced me to the transformational power of Reiki in 2015 when I was pregnant with my son. Since then, I have had multiple sessions with her. She is absolutely incredible. She is a master. She is a healer. She has a calm, loving, and kind spirit. She is wholly present during every session. It is clear that Shannon deeply cares about what she does. She is patient and giving and spends time talking through everything with you afterward. I would have given her a 6 star rating if I could have. She is simply the best and I highly recommend her to everyone from first timers to people that have had Reiki before.
