Shaaron Honeycutt

Shaaron is a very experienced teacher, with whom I have been studying for more than a dozen years. She has the right balance of challenge and acceptance of students of all ages and levels of practice. While sometimes irreverent, she approaches yoga from an essentially spiritual perspective. One can attend her classes from either an exercise or spiritual perspective, and she will give you her best instruction.

thank you so much Chris!

I appreciate you taking the time to submit the review of me and my teaching. I hope irreverence, in this case, is good. Anyway, I've love having you in class all these years, both of us have grown through our shared experiences. It is with great appreciation for my students, such as your self, that I learn, grow and love teaching Iyengar yoga even more.
love, hugs and yoga, S

excellent teacher

Sharon was host to an Iyengar Yoga Certification assessment weekend. I took one lesson from her prior to the assessment and was most impressed by her clear and methodical teaching. As a host she was extremely friendly, made all the candidates feel very comfortable and relaxed and was extremely encouraging. If i were to go back to her city I would definitely attend her classes.

Thank you Camille! I'm really glad that you got so much from my class. You came during what could be a stressful time and I'm really glad I could make your time in Charlottesville more comfortable. Best of luck to you in your teaching and I look forward to when our paths cross again!
hugs, love, and Iyengar yoga!

Amazing, warm and wonderful Shaaron

I tried to move the sliders, but they didn't work....anyway, Shaaron is an outstanding teacher. She is energetic and funny, a talented yogi and someone you come to love like a friend. How many yoga teachers read poems to help you open up to life?

excellence and depth

Shaaron and I were fellow students together 20 years ago as new teachers and I admire how devoted she is to the truth of the ancient teachings and making them apply to real life here and now for each person.

High praise coming from you -

Thank you Alex!
to paraphrase no one being a prophet in their own town... I'm so glad that we both have embraced the teachings of our teachers and taken them out into the world. I am inspired by you, my fellow teacher and friend, and glad I can, at least in some small way, live up to our long years of study and practice.

I tried numerous types of yoga and had a variety of teachers ranging from inexperienced to experience and non-spiritual to extremely spiritual; however, Shaaron is by far the best teacher I've had. Shaaron is very friendly and accommodating to individual needs. She adapts exercises to fit the needs of individuals. Her classes are also smaller, which is excellent since she can ensure safety but also challenge you. She is able to correct your technique when needed. Shaaron is very knowledgeable and experienced in yoga and is an absolute pleasure to work with. I highly recommend taking Shaaron's classes as she is by far the best yoga instructor.

Shaaron Honeycutt is the best yoga instructor for both my husband who has Parkinson's and for me. She explains, demonstrates and gives specific feedback while we're doing yoga... all with a sense of humor. We love her!

Review for Shaaron Honeycutt

Shaaron Honeycutt is a highly skilled and friendly Iyengar certified yoga instructor, whose classes have historically provided a distinguished balance of physical asana practice and philosophical teachings. She has consistently delivered well-sequenced classes to students with diverse levels of yoga experience/practice. She incorporates pranayama with asana and does an excellent job of meeting students where they are, while also inviting them to grow. Her teaching style is unique because she is a very dedicated yogi, who is committed to deepening her knowledge of this practice and shairng that with her students. She always gave me something to think in class and is an inspiration both on and off the mat.

Students like you...

Hi Alex -
It's students like you that make my "job" so rewarding. I can learn so much from my students and they (and you) inspire me to be an even better teacher, in order to offer them even a glimpse of what they can be, requires me to truly walk the talk. I'm glad we have both had the opportunity to learn from and inspire each other!
