Sean O'connor

Shakti, Be Luminous

Sean O’Connor came to yoga in a most unremarkable way: In 2004 a studio opened in his neighborhood and he walked in. There was no eureka! moment, no kundalini rising, no epiphany – just a gradual realization that the consistent practice of yoga was having a significant impact on his life away from the mat. He was physically stronger, emotionally more balanced and happier – so he kept practicing.
He came to Baptiste Power Vinyasa in early 2006, and was inspired to pursue teaching by his teachers and the power of the practice itself. He has studied with and been influenced by numerous teachers in the Seattle community and beyond, including Baron Baptiste, Eiric Ovrid, Lisa Black, Brian Kest and others.
Sean has completed Level I and Level II teacher trainings with Baron Baptiste, as well as a variety of advanced Teacher Assistant programs. He is currently (and forever?) making an effort to deepen his personal meditation practice. The intensity and richness of his Baptiste training and his ongoing practice have opened him up to new and powerful ways of being – both on the mat and in his daily life. It’s clear to him that sharing these gifts with others helps keep them alive within him. You can join Sean at the following studios; SHAKTI Vinyasa Yoga- West and Be Luminous Yoga
Sean is also a professional writer, marketing consultant and voice actor with a huge appetite for design in all its disciplines.
