Shawn Lott

Yoga INstructor, Santa Fe Thrive

Shawn Lott is a 200-Hour RYT graduate of BODY Yoga School. She mentored with accomplished teacher Emily Branden, where she extensively refined her skills of adjusting postures and built a solid foundation in alignment and mantra. Shawn's personal goals in the practice are to use the tools of yoga to connect the Santa Fe community. She is here to align students with their ability to share joy, build and internal fire (tapas) through Asana and gain resilience to global changes. She encourages students to build a strong physical core and energetic core of compassion for themselves and one another. At the heart of her teachings are the ideas that mantra and opening up the voice can release stagnant Prana. At the root of her teachings are Svadhyaya, or self examination, and at the head of her teachings is celebrating the path.

Still, what I want in my life is to be willing to be dazzled—
to cast aside the weight of facts
and maybe even to float a little above this difficult world.
