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 asana was just a lovely vehicle to learn more about ourselves, others, and the world around us.

Her true practice began when she found the teachers that inspired her to learn the wisdom and the roots of the practice. Her teaching style is influenced by Master Teachers Devarshi, Gary Kraftsow, Tias Little, Judith Lasatar,  Rod Stryker, Stephen Cope,  Don Stapleton and Jason Crandall. She received her training from years of self study, intensives, and personal and professional practice. She received her certification through Prairie Yoga based in Chicago, IL and is forever grateful for the knowledge, lineage, and curriculum that Prairie has to offer. 

Shannon is the owner and founder of Yoga Fever. Her dream was to bring a mindful, heart-centered, alignment based vinyasa practice to the  contemporary hot space.

Heather took her first yoga class in 2007. At that time in her life, she was on and off the mat just for the flexibility aspect while she was pursuing her dance passion. In 2012, she realized that she was looking for more in life. There was a void that needed to be filled spiritually, mentally, and physically. She took a deep dive into the practices of yoga. She received her yoga training from From the Heart Yoga Center in December 2013. In her classes, Heather focuses on teaching alignment and connecting the breath, mind, and body together as one. She hopes that when students are done with her classes, they will feel more centered, grounded, and expanded.

Adam Hutchens, RYT

Adam first rolled out his yoga mat in 2012 and has never looked back. It was love at first practice and since then, he’s carried his yoga mat with him everywhere he goes. After relocating to Grand Rapids from the East Side of the state, Adam wanted to dive deeper into his practice. Having an education background, with a Master’s degree in Written Communications, his first step was to take a personal training course at Grand Rapids Community College. This helped him understand the anatomy of the body and how to take care of himself first and foremost. In 2015, Adam decided to complete his teacher certification. As a true believer that yoga is for everyone, he decided to study under Yoga Medics, a program that uses yoga as a therapy for recovery from accidents and medical procedures. His teachings are influenced by life experiences, mindfulness, yoga therapy and inspiration from his own teachers. More importantly, his flows are alignment based. Adam strives to blend fun, laughter, and challenges into his everyday life and classes

Hollie Longieliere, RYT

As a former dancer, Hollie wanted to rebuild strength and reconnect with her body. After her first yoga class, she saw that she could find what she was looking for- a chance to be active, but most importantly connect to something deeper. Her practice was somewhat sporadic until she began using it as a tool to heal from depression and trauma in 2013. After seeing the huge impact it had on her well being, she knew this practice was something she had to teach to others as a way to give back.

It is Hollie's true intention to help people connect to their bodies, reclaim their lives, and tap into their unlimited potential - on and off the mat.  It is her belief that yoga is accessible for anyone and in her classes you can expect to practice surrender and self-love while also building strength and self-confidence.

As a lifelong student of yoga it is her goal to continue to share her knowledge while also continually learning from her students.
