About Shawn

Shawn Cornelison, ERYT, CYT, has taught yoga for almost 20 years, and taking clients as a yoga therapist since 2017. He completed the RCA-20 in June of 2018.

Shawn lives in Braintree, Massachusetts, and spends his falls in Bulgaria and springs in Japan. He have a BS in sign language interpreting from Northeastern University, a ERYT-500 through Yoga Aliance and a CYT-200 through IAYT.

Shawn teaching yoga because he had to; when he and his partner opened a studio, one of their instructors quit and he quickly had to learn how to teach. "I think because of feeling so unprepared when I started, I spent the next 15 years studying yoga and anatomy and movement," he says. "Eventually, I found my way to yoga therapy.  I want to teach people how to feel what is happening in their body and to be able to make conscious choices around their own health, which they can then start to apply to all areas of their lives."

Shawn discovered the Reembody Method in the final year of his yoga therapy certification, and immediately liked the results in his own body; he continues to practice integrating Reembody techniques as a yoga therapist in Boston, Massachusetts.
