TEACHER HIGHLIGHT: YOGA TEACHER SHERVON IN HER OWN WORDS

 

Join Shervon on Wednesday Nights

Mixed Level Yoga

7:45 - 9:00 PM


1. How would you describe your teaching style?

My teaching style is a breath centered approach to movement which allows students time to come to their body's full expression of each pose while becoming aware of their own inner experience. This is where yoga asana can becoming moving meditation.

2. What words of encouragement do you have for a student trying to grow/ develop their practice?

Set realistic goals for your asana and meditation practices while maintaining a heart of self compassionate. Yoga is not a competition. It is about growth that will allow you to be your most authentic self in the world.

3. What is your favorite pose and why?

Legs up the Wall & Wide Knee Child's poses are my favorite poses. Each lends itself to slow deliberate breathing which calms the central nervous system activating the parasympathetic nervous system. Perfect ways to end long hectic days.

4. What is the most remarkable event you’ve witnessed in a yoga class/ workshop/ gathering?

Teaching a class where all I could hear was everyone breathing in unison. Hearts and minds had become one in those moments.

5. Tell us something else interesting about you- it can be completely random! (Doesn't have to be yoga related, even though it's sort of all related)

I hate wearing shoes! I am in private practice with my own office and I walk around bare foot all day, every day. It is so freeing and it has improved my quality of life.
