Student Testimonials

"I just wanted to let you know what an amazing experience I had at the retreat.  I had no idea what to expect and I was blown away by how I felt at the end of the day.  Being able to teach to a variety of skills and ages (16 - 93) shows that you are an amazing teacher.  I pushed myself in ways mentally and physically that I have not done in a long time.  At the end of the retreat I felt at total peace yet am excited about the dreams/goals that I have set for myself.  I really enjoyed the company of all of the other participants and felt a connection that I was not expecting.  I would fly back down here for another retreat!  Thank you again!"

"I had the pleasure of being part of Shari's day retreat held at the beautiful setting of the Buddha House.  Since Shari is such an outstanding yoga instructor, I had high hopes and expectations for the retreat and I can honestly say the experience was amazing and far surpassed my expectations.

It was apparent that Shari devoted an incredible amount of time, thoughtfulness and creativity in planning every detail of the retreat.  The venue was tranquil and I felt like I was transported to a magical getaway.  The morning flow class and afternoon yin class made for an ideal combination of physical challenges and restorative practice.  Moreover, Shari provided a caring environment that allowed for sharing amongst the yogis, personal exploration and plenty of fun and laughter.

Throughout the day, Shari encouraged us to disconnect from the stress and routines of our everyday life and embrace the surroundings, our yoga practice and the overall retreat experience.  She inspired us with her words and teachings of sankalpas.  By the end of the day, I felt stronger and more energized, my heart and well-being felt nourished and my soul was awakened.

Shari, thank you for sharing your extraordinary gift of teaching."

"I was so impressed with the amount of preparation and thought that went into your retreat.  Your knowledge, dedication and thoughtfulness were very inspirational.  The time was productive and flexible enough to allow us to adjust from our busy schedules... to reflect and evaluate our own lives and provide helpful tools to reach for our dreams.  Thank you so much for enriching my life."

"Shari's one day yoga retreat at the Buddha House in Topanga exceeded my expectations.  It was my first yoga retreat so there was some apprehension on my part about keeping up with the more advanced yogis.  Shari was able to conduct the classes so that everyone from beginner to advanced level could enjoy both the flow class in the morning and the yin/restorative class in the afternoon.  I look forward to her next yoga retreat."

"Thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to participate in the Mountain Mermaid retreat during a time in my life when I really needed it.  It helped restore my body and my mind during a difficult time, and spending time with you and the other yogis was absolutely wonderful.  I'll never be able to fully express my gratitude for your caring demeanor, yoga expertise, and generosity of spirit!
