​​​​​​​​Shawn Brow CRNA, MAE, E-RYT 500, C-IAYT 
The CLUTCH Yoga Liaison

Shawn holdsa Bachelor of Science in Nursing, and Masters in Clinical & Anesthesia Education (1988)  She practiced as a CRNA for 34 years, retiring in April 2021 from a private anesthesia practice specializing in Podiatrics.  With an inquisitive mind rooted equally in science and movement, Shawn discovered yoga to be a perfect amalgam of these two worlds.  In January 2002 she began exploring yoga under the artful guidance of Alison Rubin.  After completing her 200hr Yoga Alliance registration in Dec 2005, she continued to teach privately and as a substitute instructor, co-founding  South Perry Yoga in 2006.  From OCT 2011- OCT 2020, she led renovations of the historic building in the South Perry district referred to as "the Buddhio".  In NOV 2020 - JULY 2021 she designed and helped manage the 

9 month renovation of a historic warehouse in the Sprague Union District, now called "the CLUTCH", where she currently teaches.
Shawn completed her 300 hr advanced yoga training from 2008-2014 at the White Lotus Foundation in Santa Barbara, California, where she received her 500 hr RYT.  Her studies there with Yoga Acharya's Ganga White and Tracey Rich, provided an eclectic tapestry of yoga tools and modalities including asana, pranayama, and meditation.  Her years at White Lotus have supported a philosophy which views yoga as an evolving process of experiential self-inquiry and life long learning. 

Shawn completed  Yoga Therapeutics Levels I & II with Cheri Clampett and Arturo Peal, and Thai Yoga Therapy with Phoebe Diftler.  She received a Thai Yoga Therapy Provider certificate in Feb 2016, and completed credentialing as a Certified Yoga Therapist  April 2017 with the International Association of Yoga Therapists (C-IAYT).  She is a currentl student in Richard Miller's i-Rest Level I training. 

Balanced within the worlds of art and science, her teachings reflect the paradox between the body’s structural bio-mechanics, and the subtleties of intuitive grace and creativity.  Shawn offers private Yoga Therapy instruction, workshops, and group classes including Yoga Newbies and Vinyasa Flow.  Her teaching style supports a mindful alignment-focused practice which cultivates balance, awareness and equanimity.
