I participated in the Penticton Yoga Weekend with a friend in June 2018. Shannon is knowledgeable, patient and an excellent teacher. It was an amazing weekend, with a great group of ladies. My favorite part was doing yoga at a local winery, I remember the class was just ending and the sun was starting to come out, the views at the winery were stunning.I would absolutely go on another retreat in the future, and hope that I get the chance to.

This is my first year at Yoga. I am an old fart so I go to Chair Yoga with Shannon. We have a very pleasant happy group and she helps us if we have problems. I find this class helps me both physically and mentally, so I wish there was another Chair Yoga during the week.

I have visited yoga studios in many cities. Riverwise Studio stands out due to the warm and friendly atmosphere. The Restorative classes I take with Shannon are professional and always include modification options. Shannon concludes each class with some enlightening comments, along with tea and chocolate, who could ask for anything more.

I had the pleasure of attending yoga classes with many of the caring teachers at Riverwise. It was always a very welcoming and comforting experience. Unfortunately I broke my wrist so have not been able to attend lately but would recommend the caring, attentive and encouraging teachers at Riverwise Yoga.

Totally new to yoga with many misconceptions about the activity itself, the poses and transitions into and out of them and no idea about instructors. Thank you Shannon for working with a complete novice and providing me with the guidance and support that has made yoga a big hit for me. I am hooked!

My husband and I are new to the Riverwise family. We quickly felt welcome and we especially like the small group experience. We attend the roll and release class and it’s a perfect addition to our mobility team. I especially like how Shannon adds a playfulness to this practice.

I’ve been coming to see Shannon for restorative yoga. I love coming to the studio and being treated by such a lovely person. I leave the session always feeling 100% better than I did coming in. My mind and body is relaxed and Shannon is very knowledgeable and demonstrates a passion for yoga! Keep up the fabulous work and I look forward to having her help me heal.

My experience with Shannon and the instructors at Riverwise has been a great one. Most of my yoga experience has been with Shannon. She is always in good humour, very attentive and helpful. Shannon always ends each session perfectly, leaving me feel relaxed and blissful. I have gone to Riverwise to exercise and to relax; and whatever I am there to do, I am always very satisfied and rejuvenated. I hope Riverwise stands the test of time (like I know it will) and is part of the community for a great many years.

After spending almost 2 years going thru breast cancer surgeries, Chemo and radiation I was left with a number of physical issues. From various reading material and speaking with my physio therapist it seemed a gentle yoga class would be a good fit. I tried classes at 3 different studios before attending a class with Shannon at Riverwise. Since that first class I have never looked back. Shannon is a wonderful instructor. She is very intuitive and offers up many options to assist you with poses. She has made suggestions to me on what I could do at home to help gain strength in problem areas. Her calm and kind personality is an added bonus and I always look forward to attending her classes. I have finally found someone that I feel I can learn from and improve my yoga practice.

I’ve been taking classes at Riverwise Yoga Studio since September 2016. I was a bit nervous to try Yoga as I’d never taken it before and I have a lower back injury. I’m very happy to say that since starting Yoga and attending regularly I have almost no more back pain. I took several beginner class series to start and now take gentle yoga and flow classes. I have enjoyed all the classes and how the different series have helped me progress. I really like the small classes and supportive atmosphere. Not only has Yoga really helped my physical condition but I also really enjoy the calming and peaceful state that I feel after a Yoga class. I highly recommend Riverwise Yoga Studio!

Hi. My husband surprised me with 4 prenatal classes at Riverwise yoga as he knows I am passionate about my yoga classes though I was well into my pregnancy and couldn’t do my regular yoga routines any longer. I was delighted to meet other bellies in the prenatal yoga class and the teacher Nevin is just wonderful. She made me feel at ease, comfortable and her soothing voice coaching the class through the modified yoga movements was just what I needed. I loved the way she taught breathing exercises and how she told us to connect with our bodies and with our “growing babies” inside our bellies. The dim lighting with the light candles, the bolsters, the blankets & even the tea offering at the end of every class was amazing. I completed my 4 classes, then I signed up for another 4 classes! Nevin you are just wonderful, your soft voice and calm nurturing demeanor makes me want to come back and sign up again soon. Thank you Riverwise yoga! Prenatal yoga classes were taken February-March 2017. I had my baby at the end of April 2017.

Riverwise Yoga is such a beautiful community of teachers and students that has grown over the last few years. Shannon is amazing because she is able to connect with each person who walks through the doors at Riverwise Yoga. She has created a space that allows others to tune-in to their bodies and find their own inner guidance.
