Sharon Wells, founder of Yoga On Chocolate, LLC (a Baptiste Affiliate Studio) is a Certified Baptiste Power Vinyasa Teacher, & she is recognized by the Yoga Alliance’s highest level of standards as an E-RYT500.
Sharon’s journey began as a dancer, using her bones, muscles and emotions to convey a story on stage. As fulfilling as it was, it ended at the age of 34 with a severe hamstring injury. She tried Karate and practiced many different forms of Yoga to help fill the void, but it was only after she discovered Baptiste Power Vinyasa Yoga in 2000, that everything changed within her. She found she loved the structure and discipline, the sweat and spirituality, the way to “heal” through a physical practice. Sharon says, “after a Baptiste Power Vinyasa Yoga class, your skin glows, and your light shines brighter.”
Sharon’s classes have been described as “athletic” or “vigorous” & she has trained Professional Athletes including AHL, NHL Hockey players and Major League Baseball Players, but she never forgets the “beginner student”. When teaching a yoga class, sharon provides skilled instruction, respects the students limitations and will provide healthy modifications to assist them with their practice.
“After an injury, one class with Sharon and I was back up playing in the NHL” ~ Andrew Gordon – NHL/AHL Professional Hockey Player with the Washington Capitals.”
Sharon is excited to have the opportunity to travel and assist her teacher, Baron Baptiste at Teacher Trainings & Programs, and to be part of an amazing community of students, teachers & friends.
