Her summers were spent traveling throughout Europe as a landscape painter where she spent hours everyday observing the wisdom of nature and interpreting it’s essence expressed through her art.
It was her freshman year in collage that Sharon began a formal practice of yoga asana. In the simplicity of her story she began on the path not having the strength to hold downward facing dog posture (adho mukha svanasana) for five breathes. It was her teachers guiding words to “keep showing up” that left an impact on her in the reminder to always honor and trust the process of growth and evolution.

“Sharon’s authenticity as a grounded women & as a soulful therapeutic yoga shaman cuts to the heart of what the asana practice is really all about…I love how she meets people exactly where they are in class & really creates a safe, non-judgemental space to invite each person to elevate to their own personal threshold that feels challenging, fun & rewarding.”
– Eileen Moran, New York
“Organic Vinyasa taught what it means to “show up” and “embody” I learned these from feeling what I have never felt in a pose before. I used to think I was in the asana until I went in deep studies with Sharon. She provides me with the tools I need to foundational connect with myself and self discovery, guiding me in the right direction so I can find my voice. I can pull Organic Vinyasa tools and use them in my other practices and teaching because I experience these profound moments of clarity, understanding, depth, and flow so strongly through Sharon’s teachings.”
-Brooke Grossfield, Yoga Teacher
“Through Sharon’s teaching I’ve learned, it’s not about the physical but about spirit and connection to something much deeper than we can ever speak of, but felt from the inner workings of our being.”
