Sharon can be described as a grounded, spiritually connected, and uplifting teacher.
She discovered yoga in her early 30’s at a time when she was racing through her life and career at warp speed and was feeling the effects of the intense pace, she was moving in. A friend suggested that she try yoga to help her slow down and after her first yoga class she immediately felt the effects. 25+ years after this initial experience this beautiful practice and lifestyle has become the foundation of her spiritual, mental, emotional, physical, and overall personal health care strategy.
Sharon’s studies began with the completion of a 200-hour Sivananda Teacher of Yoga program where she spent one month immersed in study at the Sivananda Yoga Ashram in the Bahamas. During her training she experienced excruciating and debilitating back pain which became a chronic condition. This back pain led her to the study and practice of Soma-Yoga, and she completed her 200-hours of certification at the Yoga North and International School of Soma Yoga in Duluth Minnesota. The inclusion of somatic movements has been instrumental in the healing of her chronic back pain and continues to be the foundation of her yoga practice today. In 2016 she was invited to attend a Kundalini Yoga retreat just outside of Thunder Bay, Ontario. This is where she experienced her first Kundalini Yoga Aquarian Sadhana and something deep within her was awakened. She began her journey of learning with Sat Dharam Kaur in Owen Sound and in 2020 she completed her 200-hour certification as a Kundalini Yoga Teacher at Prana Shanti. She has already started working towards her level two studies and this beautiful technology has become the cornerstone of her personal health care strategy. Of most importance to Sharon is her early morning practice. You will see her at most if not all Aquarian Sadhana’s at Prana Shanti where she is not only a participant but also a leader of the practice. She also teaches an early morning Kundalini Yoga class at 6:30 a.m. on Wednesdays. Sharon believes that the early morning practice is a powerful tool to change the trajectory of your day creating a more uplifting, balanced and awakened experience.
Sharon is of Indigenous descent, a member of the Wikwemikong First Nation which is located on the shores of Georgian Bay. Her Indigenous spirit name, given to her by her mother, is Biidaajiimaakwe which means a woman bringing a message or carrying news.
She believes that we all need some help navigating the multiple challenges of this lifetime and for her this help has come in the form of Kundalini Yoga.
