“The success of yoga does not lie in the ability to perform postures but in how it positively changes the way we live our life and our relationships.”

A Message from Shannon Elliott, Program Director

“One of the main reason our program stands out from others (and there are a lot out there!) is that we have organized our program to be rooted in the ancient texts and teachings.  It is time tested and sacred. Through these teachings you will learn how to be you. 

As a program leader, I am not interested in re-producing a bunch of mini Shannon’s.  I am interested in helping you tap into your own Soul and lead your life’s work.  We each come onto the planet with different karma and gifts which dictate our reason for being here.  We often make mistakes by thinking other people’s life work (dharma) is cool and try to replicate it.  It never works out.  My daily work is different than yours and we help you not only connect to that but begin to live it out.

We have created a platform at Onyx that allows every teacher the opportunity to teach with their heart leading the way. While many of our teachers at first glance appear different (styles, voices, etc), you will see the common thread is that they get to be exactly who they are. We encourage our teachers to hold workshops and grow their own passions, voices, and trust in themselves.  My dream as studio owner is to continue to cultivate and grow a safe space where teachers can live out their dreams.  This is the feeling you get when you walk into Onyx – acceptance, love, and support to be who you are, and of course our community gets to embrace and experience this too. We really do welcome everyone.”


Micole, 2016 graduate

“Before signing up for the Onyx 200 hour Teacher Training, Shannon took the time to sit with me, face to face, to discuss the program, answer my questions, and simply explore if the program would be a ‘fit’ for me. I began the program with every intention to teach, and did so immediately. The training had fully prepared and supported me to not only teach, but to do so with my unique voice and offerings. Shannon provided never ending guidance throughout my entrance into becoming a full time yoga and meditation teacher. She continues to be a source of support to this day. While some of the hardest times in my life unfold, it is that same Onyx Teacher Training that has prepared and lifted me. During the program, Shannon provided the space and encouragement for true inner work and growth. And the teachings we explored offer a lifetime of guidance and contemplation. One of the best decisions of my life was graduating from Onyx’s 200 hour Teacher Training.”
