To quote Hollywood legend, Bette Davis “Old age ain’t no place for sissies.”
Staying active with exercise and socialization is one of the best ways to reduce and ease the aging process.
Sharon has studied movement, dance and yoga throughout her entire life. YOGA continues to be her evolving source of inspiration on how to live...in addition to practicing the physical yoga postures, yoga is her medicine, her sanctuary and her refuge to make peace with the challenges of daily living. There is always something new to learn and Sharon LOVES sharing these teachings with all who are interested.
Originally, Sharon found Yoga when she was in high school partly because she hated gym class. She would do anything to get out of going to gym because she felt uncoordinated, weak and embarrassed about it. But she did ultimately “find herself” in dance which also led to yoga; drawn to teaching what she loved, she was even given the opportunity to teach dance and exercise classes while in high school as a gym alternative. The rest is history….
Sharon deeply believes in the healing power of movement, dance and yoga. These healing modalities affect not only how you look but ultimately how you feel and how you LIVE!
Shortly after graduating from Bard College with a Bachelor’s of Arts degree in Theatre Arts, Sharon went to Hunter College and earned a Master’s of Science degree in Dance Movement Therapy. She worked as a movement therapist in hospitals, nursing homes and community centers within the fields of psychiatry, substance abuse, gerontology, oncology and neurology.
Sharon became a Yoga Alliance certified teacher in 2007. She received her 200 hour certification at Long Island Yoga and Polarity Center in Malverne and completed another 300 hour certification in 2013 at Laughing Lotus, NYC under the mentorship of Dana Flynn. She has advanced training and certifications in yin yoga, chair yoga, restorative yoga, prenatal yoga, corporate yoga and yoga for children. Sharon is registered with Yoga Alliance as E-RYT-500, YACEP (Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Provider)
Although Sharon lives with a health challenge, an auto-immune digestive condition, she doesn’t allow it to define or limit her. Sharon has always been sensitive to the role nutrition plays in how she feels, so she turned to the Insititute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN) for more knowledge and resources. Sharon studied both dietary and lifestyle theories satisfying her many questions with ways to reduce inflammation and promote longevity wholistically in body, mind and spirit. This approach aligns with and enhances her knowledge as a therapist and yoga teacher. In 2019 Sharon became certified as a Health Coach by IIN.
