About the Instructor ~ Sharon Poarch, RPT, RYT-200
Sharon has been a pediatric physical therapist for 19 years in the public schools and Birth to Three Early Intervention, and has been teaching group fitness classes since 1991. Sharon creates safe and fun yoga classes for children and adults of all ages and physical abilities. She is always amazed at how yoga allows children to become more aware of their mind/body connections; improve balance, strength, coordination, and body awareness; and how to independently manage stress. Through yoga, Sharon believes people of all abilities and ages can improve their mental and physical sense of well-being both on and off the mat. She has her 200 hour certification for teaching yoga to children with special needs through Stretch What Matters. She is a 200hr RYT through Yoga Alliance. Sharon's adult classes are a mixed level Vinyassa style, infused with some power moves and balance challenges. Because of her physical therapy experience she is able to modify classes to various levels and meet students where they are. She is a resource to teachers in the public school setting bringing yoga into their classrooms; teaching children to regulate their bodies with breath, movement, and relaxation so they are ready to access learning.
