MEET SHARON LEWIS YOGA AND MEDITATION
I believe in the power of yoga: the power to heal, to inspire, to love, to connect, to experience bliss, to access serenity.
I believe yoga and meditation can change the world – one person at a time. Yoga can build physical and mental resilience. One person’s meditation practice impacts many people as the benefits have a ripple effect. I believe these practices should be accessible to all.
I strive to meet students where they are and tailor my classes accordingly. I offer both group and private lessons.
Join me to release your tension, stretch gently, and relax deeply.

SHARON LEWIS YOGA AND MEDITATION
Straight from the Source
Sharon came to my house and helped me set up a meditation space. I really appreciated her non-judgmental approach and willingness to help clear what wasn’t necessary out of the way – that made it both a physical and symbolic clearing of the space to practice. Having her assess my space and make suggestions was really helpful. I have a prior knowledge of meditation, but I didn’t have the experience of actually practicing in my space. This is an extremely valuable service. After setting up the space, having Sharon practice with me in that space was such a positive experience. I feel like I can really visualize the experience and revisit that when I am alone and practicing. Sharon’s voice and instruction were helpful during the guided segments.
Sharon teaches with a wonderful combination of compassion and intelligence. Her passion for yoga is conveyed through her natural ease of guiding others in mindful practices, and in her appreciation of each person's own experiences. Her yoga classes will leave you feeling like you've nurtured your mind and body with a deep sense of calm and gratitude.
I got so much out of Sharon’s meditation course! She covered a lot of material each week, sharing her knowledge and expertise in a way that was gentle and non-judgmental. Her ability to connect with people/make them feel accepted, coupled with the small group size, meant that Sharon was really able to meet me where I was. With patience and sensitivity, Sharon offered me a safe space in which to create a meditation practice that works for me. She was instrumental in helping to identify ways in which I practice the meditation principles in my daily life and offered outside resources (i.e. literature) to deepen my understanding. I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to take Sharon’s course and recommend it to both beginners and veterans alike!
A BIT ABOUT MYSELF
I am a certified yoga and meditation teacher based in Westchester County, NY. I've studied yoga for more than 20 years, and obtained my 200-hour yoga teacher training with Patty Holmes (The Yoga Garden, White Plains) and Susan Wright (Birth of Venus Yoga, Mamaroneck).
In addition to being an avid practitioner and teacher of yoga, I have studied meditation techniques with Dee Yergo (Prana Yoga and Meditation, Port Chester) and trained in MBSR (Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction), a method designed to enable participants to access and cultivate their natural capacity for self-care, as well as greater balance, ease and peace of mind.
I first became acquainted with the practice of yoga in high school and found it a welcome refuge from the stress of multiple moves and a highly competitive atmosphere.
After a short hiatus, I came back to yoga after college, taking classes through the local continuing ed program. I later discovered Kripalu-style yoga, and was inspired to deepen my practice. I studied yoga through two pregnancies and beyond at Full Circle Family Care (with Beth Gibney-Boulden).
I strive to make the practice of yoga accessible to all. I am especially interested in bringing yoga and meditation to overwhelmed parents, energetic children, caregivers/health care professionals, and people with physical limitations.
Prior to becoming a yoga and meditation teacher, I worked in public relations/communications for nonprofits, foundations, and higher education, including as the communications director for the College of Health Professions at Pace University.
