A message from the owner, Sharon Timpke
My yogic path began in 2003. My husband purchased a month unlimited yoga membership as a Christmas gift, which prompted me to take my first yoga class. At the end of the month, I was hooked. Not only was I experiencing physical changes, I was experiencing a greater sense of calm within and mental clarity. Less than 2 years later, I began a 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training program at Yoga Den. I continued my training by completing a 40 hour Intensive Teacher Training program at Bliss Yoga Shala. This is where my journey began as a teacher. I was fortunate enough to teach at Bliss Yoga Shala for over 4 years, and to have been guided by Shri Hubbard and my fellow teachers. During this time I started a corporate yoga business, Traveling Yoginis, with my good friend Deidre Armstrong, which led me to teach at Plus One Fitness Center of Merrill Lynch for 4 years. I've attended workshops with Doug Swenson, Natasha Rizopoulos, Shri Hubbard, Rolf Gates, Kathryn Budig, and completed an Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training with Manju Jois (son of Sri Pattabhi Jois). I am also a Licensed Massage Therapist (LMT), specializing in Neuromuscular and Relaxation bodywork. All of my experiences in life have made me the instructor I am today and I am truly humbled and full of gratitude. My intention is to continue growing as a yoga practitioner and as a yoga teacher alongside my students because afterall, yoga is the true teacher.
