I began my yoga practice in 1975 and have studied Sivananda, Ashtanga, Iyengar, Anusara and Vinyasa, all of which led me to the work of Ana Forrest. In 2005 I trained and certified in Forrest Yoga.
I continue to study with Ana and Jose and assist them at workshops and trainings around the country.

Perfect Class Every Time

Sharon is really good at reading her class and adjusting for their needs. She is warm and genuine which sets a comfortable and safe tone for her classes. I always leave feeling more open both physically and spiritually. She is a truly gifted teacher and I hope to be able to take from her for years to come.

It has been years that I was a regular student of Sharon's. Yet, I still remember most of our classes' poses and practice some of them weekly.

Sharon was the perfect teacher for me. Funny, kind, calm, always helpful in ensuring proper positions, and always ready to heal.

Not sure how many times I came to class with body parts that needed healing and she always had a solution (that worked).

I have done sports my entire life-Sharon has been my most influential teacher whose healing practices will follow me for the rest of my life.

Blended comfort and power

I have taken private, group, workshops, and retreat classes with Sharon and absolutely love her grace, passion, and instruction. When taking classes regularly I felt every class was an opportunity to learn, grow, and develop my practice. Sharon has a unique calm, comforting power in her teaching that really works for me and many others. Thank you Sharon for all of the time and energy you have put into me.
