Meet Sharlene

Yoga transformed my life in 2003.

 

As a movement educator, I am passionate about sharing the practice of yoga and its complimentary fitness methods with everybody and every body.

 

Exercise is medicine and we all deserve our own customized movement practice, created uniquely for

our needs. 

I encourage and empower students at different fitness levels, ages, and adaptive needs to align their bodies, minds, and hearts with their highest sense of self.

Your fitness and wellness program will take into account your whole being. From mood management to strengthening your core, you will learn how to best take care of yourself.  Drawing on a variety of movement modalities, we will craft a program especially designed to serve your optimal well-being.

 

You will gain an awareness of how your body moves, how you can move more effectively, how to address imbalances, how to modify exercises and how to live better in your body.
