Shannon Austin, ERYT, YACEP
Shannon first stepped on the mat in 2004 but believed there were signs much earlier on that she was meant to find the path of yoga. She had a bit of a rubber band effect with the practice for a few years until she realized that the physical yoga asana was just a lovely vehicle to learn more about ourselves and the world around us.
Her true practice began when she found the teachers that inspired her to learn the wisdom of the practice that is derived from the inside out. Her teaching style is influenced by Master Teachers Devarshi, Gary Kraftsow, Tias Little, Judith Lasatar, Rod Stryker and Jason Crandall. Her training is ongoing with years of self study, intensives, and personal and professional practice. Her classes embody mindfulness over momentum.
Shannon is the owner, founder and operator of Yoga Fever; a modern school of yoga that encompasses the traditions and roots of the authentic practice. Her dream was to bring a community driven, alignment based vinyasa practice to the contemporary hot space.

Brooke Stier, RYT
Brooke began her yoga journey early on in a pursuit to manage stress and emotions from the daily life through movement and mindfulness. She was attracted to the hot vinyasa style of yoga due to her passion for physical exercise driven by adolescent sports, but it was the mindfulness attribute that evolved her unending love for the practice.
Brooke completed her 200-hour yoga teacher training through Yoga Fever with Shannon Austin. Her passion behind teaching is to share the benefits of yoga that extend far beyond the mat. She strives to create an environment that is accepting and safe for individuals to explore themselves physically and mentally in their own space within the community that supports them, and a class that leaves them feeling refreshed and grounded.

Regina Lopez-Maher, RYT
“Life is about balance, and yoga has been a way for me to bring balance back into life when my pendulum has swung to one extreme or the other.” Regina teaches a vinyasa flow that creates a space that encourage curiosity and exploration for yogis to link their breath and the movement of their body; to reconnect, become aware, make space for whatever lies within and be present for the entire experience. “Get on your mat, breath, flow, get messy, fall apart, and begin again,” because it’s a practice of progress, and not perfection.
