Shannon Bower

Shannon’s philosophy on healing revolves around movement. Particularly, with understanding how it feels to move and the sensations involved with different movements. She believes that with the combination of knowledge and feeling we have the insight to care for ourselves. At age 15 Shannon began practicing Yoga and this inspired her education. This led her to completing a Doctor of Physiotherapy degree at University of Melbourne, Australia. In the Yoga world, she is an E-RYT and CEP. In the physiotherapy world, she uses movement to heal (as a preference over of manual treatment) and produces research in affiliation with a low back pain research group. Her current endeavors are guiding people to find the subtlety and fluidity of movement, and writing a book about the fundamentals of the body that are often overlooked and misunderstood. If you’re in Australia, you can find her teaching a variety of movement styles in the Byron Shire.

Dear readers - we are beyond excited that our articles resonate with so many of you. Our mission of advancing free education, critical thinking, and thoughtful journalism has never been more on fire.

As an independent, women-led magazine, we rely heavily on the generosity of people like you to make those conversations keep going. 

That's why we're asking you to become our Patron today. Every month, we get hundreds of requests for paid Instagram posts, advertising masked as reviews and a whole load of unethical bullshit. Call us naive, but we believe that Patreon could be the first step to a more ethical, honest & in-depth online journalism. Journalism that advocates for its readers, not its advertisers.
