“American Barre Technique® (ABT) (pronounced 'bar') is a low impact, ballet inspired workout that effortlessly fuses ballet, aerobics, and yoga. ABT sculpts, defines, and transforms the entire physique while simultaneously increases flexibility, decreases body fat, and slims the body’s overall shape.”

Shannon is also the owner and lead consultant of DuNord Consulting here in Alexandria, and has her office here at Yoga One. To contact Shannon and DuNord consulting:


I began taking ballet at the age of three. Dance has continued to be a passion of mine spanning many years of instruction, practice and exploration of its many forms. As a native of Alexandria, I am a Dancin’ off Broadway Alumnus, taking instruction there through high school. Continuing my love for movement, I became interested in yoga and have been practicing for 15+ years and am a member of Yoga One. I love that Barre offers a combination of both of these disciplines with influences of aerobics and strength components.

I am currently pursuing my passion for yoga and continuing education. I am currently enrolled in the Yoga One 200 hr Yoga Teacher Training certification program. Watch for me as I begin my journey as a yoga instructor here at Yoga One.

Shannon is an ABT certified instructor. 

BARRE classes are Wed night from 6:30-7:30pm and Friday morning from 9-10am.
