My name is Sharyn Hahn, and teaching is my passion! I have been a teacher for most of my adult life, having taught all ages - toddlers, middle schoolers, high schoolers, college students and adults. In addition to my Middle School career in the World Language department, I have been studying and practicing yoga, mindfulness and fitness for my own personal growth and health since 2008. As a result, I began offering sessions as a personal trainer and yoga/mindfulness teacher in studios, privately, and in schools. During the current pandemic, my main focus is on Zoom and other virtual platforms.
Circle of OM™ sessions have been offered once a week on Zoom since March. This is a practice that holds space for the participants as they engage in a sharing circle that is followed by an asana practice. The yoga flow focuses on grounding, centering mindful movement and breath work that resets the parasympathetic nervous system. The Circle share instills hope, creates a sense of universality, and offers an opportunity for giving and receiving support.
Movement, meditation and mindfulness have reduced anxiety in my life, increased my focus, balance, and flexibility, and allowed me to lower my dose of Synthroid that I take due to imbalances from thyroid surgery in 1993. Exercise, breathwork and yoga are crucial to my physical and mental health and I became certified in several modalities so that I could share this knowledge and teach it to you!
