It became clear to Sharon as she took her initial teacher training that safety was a big issue.  Influenced by the prop use and alignment of Iyengar yoga, Sharon strives to help the student find their version of the pose in their body with their own particular body issues.  She teaches traditional Hatha yoga' with a focus on the breath, alignment, safety, and modifications.  She calls Judith Lasater a great influence on her teaching.  Sharon wishes to thank Gerda Krebs for her support, encouragement, and mentorship.  Sharon wishes to also thank Lidija Martinovic-Rekert for her wealth of teaching, knowledge, and for her friendship.


She offers weekly classes and is available for custom weekend retreats, classes and workshops.  One on one instruction is available; please contact Sharon to learn more.
