Sam first discovered yoga as a means to relieve running and cycling injuries, but her practice has become internal over the last three years, radically altering her perceptions of both the world at large and her own self worth. As she has journeyed from the outside inward, her experiences have brought her the knowledge that a little external work can lead to big internal changes. She explored this idea via a trek through Australia and India in 2015-2016 that culminated in a teacher-training course at Samyak Yoga in Mysore, India, where she was certified as a 200hr RYT (Registered Yoga Teacher) through Yoga Alliance. She’s delighted to return to her hometown and share with others the opportunity to do their own work at their own pace, just as she does in her own practice. Her focus is on anatomical alignment, responding to the individual needs of the body (particularly for athletes), and breath as a tool for meditative concentration.
Sam Sharkey is currently not instructing any classes.
