Relevate was founded in 2017 by Shannon Werner. Shannon is passionate about all things movement, and has a diverse athletic background ranging from endurance sports (long-distance triathlon, cycling, marathons) to mindful movement practices like Yoga, Barre, and Pilates.

Shannon holds two 200hr Yoga Teacher certifications from Radiant Yoga and YogaWorks, and received her barre certification from barre3. She is also a certified Level 1 STOTT PILATES® instructor, and is currently working towards her full STOTT PILATES® certification.

Shannon started Relevate to live and share her wild passion for movement, music, and community building, as she believes these elements powerfully heal. Her powerhouse classes take you on a journey that not only deeply challenges your body, but also empowers your mind and uplifts your spirit. Her instruction blends the meditative quality of linking breath to movement with intelligent sequencing and alignment-based cueing, and she creatively uses music to set the energetic tone of class. Her classes inspire clients to sweat, work hard, and push themselves deeper than they think is possible.  

In addition to founding Relevate, Shannon holds a Ph.D. in Biochemistry, and is a Transformational Nutrition Coach and Reiki Energy Healer.
