Being the daughter of a Navy seal, Shannon learned the value of athletics and exercise at a young age. Growing up she was always captivated by the incredible ability of the body to improve, adapt and be challenged. Shannon has a dance background in tap, jazz and cheerleading. In college (University of Colorado) she was on the Dance Team for 2 years and Cheerleading squad for 1 year. She competed nationally and taught at various camps and clinics throughout the state of Colorado for the UCA (Universal Cheerleading Association) including creating choreography. Shannon was introduced to Pilates in 2010 as a way to help alleviate the stress and physical demands of pregnancy. She was amazed by how difficult it could be to perform the tiny, precise movements taught in Pilates. Shannon loved the unique exercises and immediate results she experienced with Pilates, so she decided to pursue the full 600 Hour Comprehensive training to become a certified Pilates instructor. Shannon has a passion for learning and wants to share Pilates with as many people as possible. She wholeheartedly agrees with Joseph Pilates when he said,“Physical fitness is the first requisite of happiness.” She also holds a B.A. in Communication, loves to read, and enjoys being with her Air Force husband and their 3 daughters.
Shannon Wells is currently not instructing any classes.
