After many years of searching for a sustainable exercise practice, Shannon Houck discovered Pilates. Initially, it was a great way to rebuild strength after breaking her wrist, and then it quickly evolved to the best hour of her day! She realized that Pilates provided a mental and physical challenge which other types of exercise are not able to match. After practicing Pilates for little over a year, she enrolled in the Teacher Training Program to improve her practice – and realized how much she enjoyed helping others discover Pilates. After receiving her BS in Human Nutrition, Foods, and Science, Shannon earned her degree as a Registered Nurse. Pilates is a fantastic pairing with her background in HNFE and Nursing.
She and her husband live in Berryville, VA with all of their four-legged children. She is looking forward to continuing her Pilates education, receiving her PMA certification, and is happy to join Michelle and the rest of the wonderful staff at Pilates Connection!
