Shannon Sturdevant, Founder and Owner of The Sturdevant Yoga Project

About Shannon

Shannon Sturdevant, founder of The Sturdevant Yoga Project, completed her 200 hour certification through the Yoga Alliance in 2014. She specializes in yoga for the physically challenged. Shannon trained with Matthew Sanford (Adapting Yoga for Disabilities), founder of Mind Body Solutions in Minnetonka, Minnesota. Her training continued with Dianne Bondy (Yoga for All: Yoga for Bigger Bodies and Diverse Communities). Shannon is also a member of The Yoga Service Council.


As a physically disabled person herself, Shannon fills the needs of those who wish to experience the benefits of yoga (finding balance, building strength, and experiencing greater stability) who are not comfortable with, or who cannot participate in, conventional yoga. Her classes focus not on the postures themselves, but the student’s individual experience with the postures through the use of body, breath, and mind.
