Shari has had a strong personal practice for the past 10 years taking workshops and classes with a wide variety of teachers and styles. After being introduced to Yin Yoga in Vermont by Elisabeth Gardner, she pursued her newfound passion for this style through Yin Yoga teacher trainings with Corina Lynn Benner at the Integral Yoga Institute in NYC.
Shari believes that through yoga, and our work on the mat, we have the opportunity to learn about ourselves. We increase self-awareness, enhancing the powerful connection between our mind, body and spirit. By taking what we discover on the mat and into the world, we become more fully present and connected to the world around us.
In addition to yoga, Shari is licensed to practice in the field of Occupational Therapy with a background in adult and geriatric rehab. She is a registered therapeutic riding instructor through PATH International and a Reiki Level ll practitioner. She currently splits her time between Putney, Vermont and White Plains, New York and is passionate about spending time with her family, dogs and horses as well as furthering her knowledge and study of Yoga.
