About Sharon Sharon Bales first started practicing Hatha Integral Yoga in Virginia in
1991. The Centre de Yoga du Marais has been her base in Paris since 2005 and it is there that she
earned her Yoga Alliance diploma in 2011. She has experienced the
physical, spiritual and emotional transformation that a steady, earnest
practice can bring. Through her yoga practice she has found strength, balance and peace in her life and she seeks to share this joy with her students. In her classes she aims to guide her students to find stability, ease and calm in their postures and hopes that they leave each class feeling more balanced and at peace than when they entered.
