In 8 weeks, I have lost 26 lbs! I feel like I have gotten clear on some of the issues that held me back from letting the weight go. I’m peaceful in my heart in a way I’ve never been before. I am becoming more me.

Barbara H., Guilderland

In 8 weeks, I have lost a total of 18 lbs. and have measured about inches off all my body parts. In total now, I have lost 87 lbs. now. I am soooo happy and proud of myself!

Kathleen Purello, Guilderland

I lost 30 lbs. in 4 months. Key 2 Joy has unlocked a whole new world for me. Thank you Shannon!

David Doling, Albany

I lost 22 lbs. in 4.5 months and now I look as pretty as I feel!

Lois Young, New Baltimore

I lost 26 lbs. in 3 months. I wend from a size 18 to a size 16 and now that is loose on me! It works, it truly works! I get compliments ALL THE TIME!

Toya Bishop-Alescio, Albany

I lost 24.6 lbs. in 3 months. My blood pressure, cholesterol, and blood glucose are lower and I move more easily!

Barbara Moore

I lost 25 lbs. in 5 months. I started off walking 20 minutes a day and now I am walking an hour to an hour and a half per day. … I am sleeping better… I can’t tell you the last time I had soda. I drink water all day. I definitely think other people should give it a try!

Anne A., Slingerlands

I lost 31 lbs. I have lower blood pressure, my joints feel better, and I have more energy. My kids said, “ Mom, you’re much happier.” I didn’t realize my kids were getting the worn out end of the work-day me. Hypnosis has helped me with so much more than weight loss. I am letting go of stress, hurt, bad habits, and gaining new habits. Hypnosis is giving me tools to let go of so much more than just weight!

Christina Patterson

This surpassed my expectations! My outlook on my health has improved.

Denise D., Brunswick

I am making better food choices. Key 2 Joy is a very relaxing place to be.

Sarah G., Colonie

I lost 10 lbs. in 8 weeks. I find it easier to walk away from food that I would normally grab without even thinking about it.

Susan L., Clifton Park

I lost 13 lbs. in 5 weeks. I was not sure what to think, but wanted to try something different that would help my mind-set about eating and losing weight. Since my sessions, I have been able to maintain healthy eating and consistent exercise… I have learned many techniques to help with my mind-set and keep the healthy positive suggestions a priority.

Anonymous, Albany

My health has improved. I am setting goals, accomplishing a different lifestyle. I feel more relaxed. I have been given the tools for my own goals.

Cindy B., Colonie

I am more at peace, more confident with myself and at Halloween, I didn’t eat any candy and I didn’t care.

Lori Porter

I did a lot of mindless eating. I binged. I was not moving. I was like a slug. I feel so much more energized and alive. My life is changing. It has helped me feel better about myself and it has helped me lose weight. For me hypnosis just reinforces what I want to do and it really works for me. It’s something I can use no matter where I am and for a lot of different parts of my life.

Karen M., Delmar

This is the best thing I have done for myself in forever! I feel calm and happy with myself and I haven’t felt that in a long time. I am enjoying the process. I AM ACTUALLY ENJOYING THE PROCESS. It’s easy! I am losing weight. It’s easy. I am enjoying eating well. I am enjoying the fitness part of it. ~ Maryann K., It has been very, very hard for me to give up diet soda, but I have wanted to get rid of the fake sugars and things like that. Almost every day there was a soda. After my first session, that night I just totally decided no more and since then I had one and it tasted so bad and it was like “yuck” and I haven’t had any since. I can’t believe it. It’s just something I would normally just go grab and I just have no desire. In fact the other night when I went out to eat I had water with lemon in it and water has never been a substitute for diet soda, but it actually tasted good!

Brenda Peck

I want to let you know that my anxiety has been so much better since we worked together. I’m more social with my colleagues and not as nervous in small or medium sized groups. I had to speak at a school board meeting last May and I used the strategies you taught me and I was able to speak and people said I was good!!

Michelle M.

I was very pleased that the hypnotic techniques, over time, changed the nature of my sleep patterns and dreaming to a point where they are closer to “normal” than they have been in a long while. Hypnosis has also provided very valuable tools to continue my work in the sleep arena and in other areas of my life as well.

J. M., Scotia

After over 20 years of trying just about everything to stop an unwanted habit, I found Shannon. And now, 2 months later, I am not only still free of my habit, but feeling overall calmer and more in control. Key 2 Joy was the answer I was looking for all of those years! Don’t think twice about it- make an investment in yourself and try Hypnosis today.

Kelly B.

This is what I needed at this time! I feel supported and I can help my self.

Barbara S.

The self-hypnosis techniques you taught me have been invaluable in managing my anxiety during (my health) ordeal. If I hadn’t learned how to do the self-hypnosis from you I’d probably be addicted to Xanax by now. Thank you

Christine B., Edinburg

From the first session I was able to function without the craving for nicotine.

Patrick Reilly

I am letting go of things that used to drive me crazy. I am letting go of old resentments; getting excited over life again. This has changed my life! I am getting back my joy! I am blessed to have found you.

Joan B.

I came to overcome a fear of flying. I didn’t want to take medicine or drink to fly. I had 2 sessions, I used the methods you taught me and it definitely made a difference. Closing the door made me panic in the past. I felt totally FINE and I was okay within seconds. My husband kept saying throughout the flight out and back “Wow, you are doing really good. This really worked for you!” I had hardly any thought of fear at all. It worked!

Chris W., Fonda

Originally I came for weight loss, I lost almost 10 lbs. in three weeks, but I just found out I was pregnant and I am 100% positive that Shannon is the reason I am sitting here growing a baby! We had been trying for a year and I was scheduled for IVF and now I am pregnant. Thank you!

Erika H.

I had a lot of guilt, pain, and hurt. Now I feel light and free. I totally didn’t know what to expect. I wasn’t quite sure it was going to work. I am still not sure why it worked, but I am glad it did.

Kate Hamlin

Shannon guided me through a much needed spiritual transition with her gift of healing in a most powerful way… I was able to consciously go to a deeply meditative place where I felt blessed quietness. I also felt the ability… to confront and dismiss the negative recordings that sometimes clouded my path of progress. At the end of each session, I felt enlightened and took with me a word or sensation that would help me in a moment when I heard or felt an overwhelming moment from the past. I live with a determined mindset to stay on the path of the positive. Shannon’s work through hypnosis has given me tools that I can use any time useless patterns of negativity attempt to become a part of my thought process.

Carol R., Trenton

Recently you held a training and I just wanted to say, we really loved it! It was nice to have someone so “real” do a training.

You helped to change my life a few years back. My health and well-being have become so much better because of you and the power of yoga.

Clare H., Albany

I found the stretching was wonderful for relief of my physical pain. The yoga also helped center me and give me confidence in my physical abilities.

Nancy T., Lawrenceville

Shannon’s Hatha class is what yoga should be: A relaxing journey to freshen the soul and spirit within a comforting environment. Movement within your abilities. No judgment. Plus, it’s just fun!

Kelly F., Schenectady

After the Yoga Nidra class, all of my joints feel better.

Suzanne B.

Shannon has a wonderful soft voice and energy that leads you into a calm space. She is very knowledgeable in her practice. I recommend Shannon and her work for healing the body, mind, and spirit. She holds the compassion for her clients that allows their healing to take place. Absolutely wonderful!

Pamela Jane

Love Shannon! Her energy and truth are magnetic! It is so nice to know a yogini truly on her path, honoring the ancient teachings of yoga. The studio itself is welcoming and cozy. A wonderful place to be!

Pam M

It helped my daughter to relax.

Anonymous Kids Yoga Parent, Colonie

The instructor did a great job of teaching the children. She was able to reach their levels of fitness.

Anonymous Kids Yoga Parent, Colonie

The instructor, Shannon, has a wonderful way with kids. She provides a warm, nurturing environment. I love the use of the bolster pillow, blocks, beanbags, and blankets. Excellent class!

Anonymous Kids Yoga Parent, Colonie

I liked the friendliness of the instructor, the time, and the ease of movements.

Anonymous Kids Yoga Parent, Colonie

It helps my kids to concentrate and focus.

Anonymous Kids Yoga Parent, Colonie

The kids loved the class. When your child comes home and uses the relaxation techniques given throughout the class, it’s a win-win! It’s such a fantastic class!

Anonymous Kids Yoga Parent, Colonie

It left me feeling that I had methods I could use on demand!


It made something very daunting and intimidating change to something very accessible and doable.


The instructors were so wonderful. I loved being exposed to this very calming strategy.


I feel more centered, calmer than normal.


This will help me to reduce stress.


I learned new ways to remain calm and balanced.


I am learning ways to keep balanced, calm, and peaceful.


This class provided me with tools to improve my health through in depth explanations of techniques of meditation in a non-judgmental, relaxed atmosphere.


This workshop helped with calming my mind to release stress and gave me different techniques of meditation to use.


I wanted to learn how to relax and this provided several techniques rather than just one.


Scheduling real time out was a real treat. Any way to bring peace to my mind is good.


Shannon is very effective with hypnosis and Reiki, because of her skill and, most importantly, the sense of trust you will have with her. Over the years, I had some accidents that produced chronic and at times excruciating back and neck pain. I was amazed at the relief I got from the sessions with Shannon. She also taught me methods I could do on my own when things really got bad.

Nancy T., Lawrenceville

The energy work that I received was life changing and nearly beyond words!
