Sharon started yoga in 2012 to complement her long-distance running. She perceived it as just a physical workout until she experienced positive changes within and noticed that her practice of being aware, mindful & calm on the mat spreading into her life off the mat.
Interested in pursuing a teacher training course but scared of the challenges ahead, Sharon hesitated for over a year until she finally stepped out of her comfort zone and decided to just do it in 2015. Despite being a certified teacher, Sharon considers herself still a yoga student for life. Aside from yoga, Sharon enjoys good food (especially cakes!), sudoku puzzles and travelling – but not necessarily in that order.

Growing up, I loved Mary Poppins. It used to be shown on TV (in the UK) practically every Christmas and I never got bored with it. It’s so magical and fun with fantastical adventures – you can say it’s supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!
