Shannon Manuel

Teacher & Teacher Development

Shannon Manuel

Shannon has been with Swan Pilates since its establishment in 2019. However, she’s been cultivating her skills as a Pilates Teacher since 2006. A born leader, Shannon boasts the perfect mix of organizational know-how and genuine client compassion that result in tailored, effective, and enjoyable Pilates sessions. 

Shannon always aspired to be in the spotlight. As a child, she dreamed of being an actress or aerobics teacher. Her stark punctuality and natural leadership traits set her up to be an exceptional teacher who’s not only patient but passionate, too. 

In her practice, Shannon aims to share her love of Pilates with others. While the workout is a challenge, she hopes her clients will discover their inner strength to push through and learn to appreciate the process in the meantime. Ultimately, Pilates strengthens and lengthens the body, and Shannon strives to help her patrons achieve a functional mind as much as flexible movement through continued practice. As a patient instructor and excellent listener, she’s a pro at her trade, taking the time to offer a personalized experience for each customer so they can reach their personal best. 

Not only does Shannon provide impressive expertise to her classes, but she offers her capabilities to the rest of the Swan Pilates team, too, raising the studio’s standards to an unparalleled level. 

Shannon extends her trustworthy, motherly nature from the studio to the sports field, where she actively attends her kids’ sports games. When she has a moment to herself, she enjoys relaxing at the beach and watching TV.
