Shawna Askew

The OM Yoga Lounge Studio during a vinyasa yoga class.


Shawna Askew

Instructor, RYT-200

Shawna started her yoga journey after needing an outlet. Growing up, she always played sports: basketball, soccer, and volleyball. She stopped in high school and always felt something was missing. When Shawna went to college, she took a yoga course and fell in love with it. She loved the feeling after moving through the poses; it always made her feel accomplished. Shawna loved how it helped her mentally and physically and she knew it could help others. She knew it was an outlet for releasing energy and tension in the body that you could actually feel. Through a mentor, she found The Om Lounge and fell in love with Vinyasa Krama. A year later, she started her yoga teaching journey. It pushed her to get out of her comfort zone and became an outlet for her creativity. She felt she was living her favorite quote— “Get comfortable being uncomfortable.” Now, Shawna’s goal is to show people that yoga isn’t just the poses and working out, but truly a puzzle piece that connects the mind and body. Off the mat, Shawna loves to spend time with family and friends, traveling, watching YouTube, and debating.
