Mythic Motion

A Myth Based, Flow and Restore
200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training
with Shannon Paige ERYT 500, CYT 10000 + and Special Guests

Love myth? Love movement? 

This is a body of work dedicated to those who love mythology, movement and the gorgeous conversation possible between story and body.

Study the stories, gods and goddesses. Learn to weave the tales and teachings of ancient characters through yoga asana in powerful and beautiful ways. Inspire your study, practice and teaching practice in ways to new heights.

The Asana:

Rich, pervasive, and smooth vinyasa is paired with rejuvenating restorative progressions to create a mat based experience that is nothing short of mind-blowing. Each session combines mindful movement with sweet stillness, nourishing pranayama, and guided meditation to cultivate profound calm and focus in the practitioner.

The Inspiration:

Each class session weaves a myth, or tale drawn from the Hindu canon and other world wisdom traditions. The elements of the story, god and goddess archetypes are thoughtfully woven through the postures, sequences, pranayamas and meditations. The result feeds intellect, insight, and inspiration.

Learn to Teach Mythic Motion!

Study with us across a year’s cycle in potent weekend immersions. This is not a quick yoga teacher training, those who love mythology and mindful movement will get to savor a slower process and prolonged engagement to steep deep in study and story, deepen passion for wisely sequenced and effective yoga, and cultivate confidence in presentation and teaching techniques.

Feed your fascination!

Full Weekend Descriptions

Triadic Heart – Wisdom Immersions 

The energy of Hindu mythology beautifully vibrates beautifully between ‘seed’ nature and ‘growing’ nature, the dynamisms of integration and radiance. These immersions inspire student teachers across and through the divine pairings of the three primary archetypes of creation, sustenance, and dissolution. These devi and deva stories, myths, symbols and agencies up-level inspiration, engagement, and application of the ancient to the contemporary.

Understand what is meant by the ‘Triadic Heart’ in each of these divine energies, separately and together:

The Heart of Lakshmi and Vishnu    -    Sustaining Current

He is the sustainer. She is the energy of what is sustained - how much and how long. We will look at the stories that make these two such primary archetypes. This gets to be a deep study into each he and her, separately and together. He has multiple avatars including Krishna and Buddha and she is often considered to be the goddess of the cash machine: let’s explore why they are both so beloved (they have prom king and queen energy!!) and so underestimated as to the power of the space in between.

This gets to be a deep study into each he and her, separately and together. He is, the ascetic and withdrawn meditator, as well as the wild, sexy dancer; she is the virgin and the one that rides the tiger into battle with ALL the weapons. Let’s explore why they are both so attractive and frightening and why we love, misunderstand, want and simultaneously refuse their crazy potential and fractal forms?

Poetry in Motion, Anatomy in Action

A Deep Steep in The Body and Asana: Cause and Effects #WhysinWonderment

Poetry is the art and science of un-covering that which moves the mover within the heart. Anatomy is the art and science of that which moves the mover from moment to moment, shape to shape, with intention and attention. As such, anatomy is not a dry, dead study; it does not need to remain lost in an unopened book or a lecture to be remembered only until its exam. Anatomy does not need to stump a practitioner or teacher in any type of useful application. In this teacher’s study, learn to: feel, identify, coordinate in meaningful movement patterns, speak to, and skillfully use bio-mechanical bone patterns, muscles and internal systems as teaching and practice tools. In essence, this weekend’s student teacher study will shine more light on ‘why yoga works’ and how an understanding of anatomy in action will help the practice of yoga asana make it work more for YOU!

This will not just be a lecture! It will be put into your body! You GET to take the teachings WITH YOU! Synthesis is the highest form of learning!


The Combination of these teacher studies delve beyond a point and identify anatomy exploration. The aim is to create wisdom and confidence to inspire and Up-Level ALL of your Practice and Teaching.

  • Strong Awareness of Structure and Bio Mechanical Framing
  • A Working Knowledge of Key Muscle Groups, Their Functions, and Their Conversations with Other Muscle Groups
  • Identification of Functional vs Non-Functional Movement Patterns
  • Confidence in Postural Purpose and Placement within a Sequence
  • A Working Method of Speaking to Anatomy in Action
