In 2016 I felt it was time to do my Jivamukti Yoga teacher training in India. Some call Jivamukti Yoga the punk rock of yoga. And I agree. At its core there’s pure spiritual activism, integrated into strong, creative āsana classes, with a focus on the ancient yoga teachings/philosophy.
Sharon is a 300 Hour Jivamukti® Yoga Certified teacher and 30 Hour Restorative Yoga teacher (Teacher training with Judith Hanson Lasater and Lizzie Lasater).
During the Dutch Presidency of the European Council Yogabrigade and Thrive Yoga facilitated Jivamukti Open air yoga classes on the Kop van Java for Meet The Locals. In Spring and Summer we popped up in the Flevoparkbad and on Java eiland. And we teach special classes: in the Oosterkerk and the Zuiveringshal, Westergasfabriek and QRU all in Amsterdam.
From September 2019 to February 2021 I was teaching at United.Yoga studio, the space Anna Dukhanina and I founded at Hoogte Kadijk 51 in Amsterdam. Unfortunately the studio closed its doors permanently due to the corona crisis.
But you can join me online, check my schedule and come practice from my home to yours. We stay united in movement, mind and heart!
Are you interested in coming along on a retreat? Drop me a message and let’s talk! And check special events going on:
ONLINE – every month Restorative class on Sunday at 18:00, check my schedule for the next one.
(Paolo Giordano – How contagion works, 2020)
“This epidemic encourages us to think of ourselves as belonging to a collective. It pushes us to behave in a way that is unthinkable under normal circumstances. To recognize that we are inextricably connected to other people. To consider their existence and well being in our individual choices. In the contagion we rediscover ourselves as part of a single organism. In the contagion we become again a community.”
We are born to look and listen to the world.
I bow to my teachers:
Emma Henry (Yoga Flow)
Doug Witthaker (Krama Yoga Sydney)
Moritz Ulrich (Peace Yoga Berlin)
Gösta van Dam (Svaha Yoga)
Alexandra Waters (Anahata Vinyasa Yoga)
