Yoga Lab – An Extended Practice with Sharon Barto Gouran
July 27 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm| $20
Over the course of a yoga class, we move through many phases of action towards a peak pose or idea. The typical class length, while sufficient, can sometimes leave us wanting a bit more. Come try new things, build confidence and refinement, and get closer to bliss in a 90-minute yoga practice! This monthly extended practice will combine Vinyasa and Hatha approaches, providing time to delve into all the families of asana: seated, standing, forward and back bending, inversions, and supine. It will provide an opportunity to try peak poses that require strong preparation, which isn’t always available during a shorter class. This class will leave you feeling completely blissed out, energized, and grounded in your body.
Date & Time: Saturday, July 27, 2019 @12:00pm – 1:30pm
About the instructor: Sharon Barto Gouran
Sharon Barto Gouran has been practicing yoga since 2003, and teaching since 2011. Having begun practicing with primarily physical motives, she soon discovered a much deeper connection between the mind, body and spirit through breath. The sense of peace beginning to carry over from the mat into daily life was impossible to ignore. After moving to Seattle in 2007, Sharon stumbled Yogalife as a student and would continue to complete the 200 Hour Teacher Training with the studio.
Sharon encourages both creativity and mindfulness in her classes. Acknowledging that yoga is a life-long journey, she emphasizes honoring the body for where it is in this present moment. Through a mixture of both dynamic and nurturing asana, she encourages a gradual opening of the body and quieting of the mind by honoring and expanding the breath. She does this all with a gentle sense of humor.
Sharon is a native of Sun Valley, Idaho and holds a Bachelors degree in Theatre and English from Willamette University. Outside of the studio, she works as a freelance actor as well as nonprofit professional.
