Meet Our Team
Shannon Crow (she/her)
Podcast Host & Pelvic Health Yoga Teacher
Shannon Crow (she/her) is a trainer and consultant working for yoga teachers who are ready to specialize, stand out and run a profitable yoga business. She hosts The Connected Yoga Teacher podcast and Facebook group; offering support to yoga teachers around the globe. She gets how isolating it can be to leave a yoga teacher training or to teach way too many group classes in a week with little income.
As a yoga teacher, Shannon specializes in teaching Yoga for Pelvic Health. She didn’t always have a niche though. Shannon tried many paths first; working as a yoga studio manager, YTT director, yoga school founder, Thai yoga massage therapist and all while raising three children.
She knows what it is like to just keep signing up for yoga teacher training, thinking this is the ticket to expertise, knowledge and confidence in running a successful yoga business. She understands yoga teacher burnout firsthand and how niche work, a supportive community and business education can make all the difference.
Shannon is the founder of Pelvic Health Professionals, an online membership for anyone working with individuals who have a pelvis. She leads a 20-hour Yoga for Pelvic Health training both online and in person.
In her spare time Shannon can be found hiking, gardening, swimming and skiing on the Bruce Peninsula in Ontario, Canada with her partner Shawn. Her three kids are growing into young adults now and have been her best teachers.
Sinead O'Connor (she/her)
Yoga Teacher / Virtual Assistant
Sinead is a yoga teacher first and foremost and satisfies her need for admin structure and organization by supporting busy professionals to stay on top of their workload with marketing, admin, and business support.
Specializing in pre and postnatal yoga and pelvic health, Sinead has a passion for teaching yoga and mindfulness to clients in and around their transition to motherhood and beyond.
Originally from Manchester, UK, Sinead is a huge soccer fan, bookworm, and yogi. When not teaching or typing, Sinead is keeping track of three very busy kids and her husband (and Yorkshire Terrier), in Calgary, Alberta.
Sinead’s (married) name might sound familiar to some, but she is not the Sinead O’Connor that sings although she is, incomparably, real.
