Sharikay spent her youth in sunny South Florida and the first part of adult life working in the worlds of fine art and marketing. The corporate city life and polished pavements of Chicago, New York and London turned into more than a decade of life traveling dusty African roads, beaches of Central America and ancient alley ways of Asia. The end result...a radical shift in life's focus and future. Amidst this shift, a new found committed connection to yoga was made, that has stayed in the forefront of life.
With an unquenchable enthusiasm for learning and life, Sharikay has learned much from her dedicated students and talented teachers from around the globe in many disciplines - including Hatha, Iyengar, Anusara, Ashtanga, Budokon, Acro, Ayurveda, Vinyasa, Partner, Pre-Natal, Yin and Children's Yoga. The journey spans from South Florida to Singapore, from Nicaragua to Hong Kong, Costa Rica to Jakarta and from Bali to Bangkok - her most recent home base.
A Yoga Alliance E-RYT 500, RCYT and CEP, Sharikay is a 'big kid' at heart who holds space for her students (no matter the age!) to practice with integrity, intelligence and authentic inquiry helping them discover their own inspiration, courage and clarity. She has been teaching adults at Yoga Elements Studio in Bangkok and is Director of Incy Wincy Yoga Thailand, managing & training a talented team of teachers, and creating & supervising kids and teen yoga programs at Bi-lingual & International schools. Sharikay is forever grateful and inspired by the knowledge of her teachers, the creativity of her students and the kindness of her 'kula'!

Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
Meeting in person to discuss needs, desires and goals of what they would like to focus on and to also ensure my teaching approach, experience and personality are a good fit to achieve those goals!
Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.
Pricing depends upon:
- # of classes per week
- distance necessary to drive to client if an 'in-home' session
- cost of studio rental if private studio classes are preferred
- # of people participating
What types of students have you worked with?
I have worked with all levels and all ages. Teaching public adult and kids yoga programs. As well as private classes for individuals looking to build strength, learn yoga basics to be comfortable enough to take studio group classes, allieviate stress, relax, focus or develop a personal practice that might compliment another sport or exercise they regularly participate.
What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?
Meet with your teacher and share all you would like to learn. You will be working closely, so be sure it will be a positive and promising exchange for the both of you!
What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?
what exactly do I want to learn? for what purpose? what challenges might I have (physical, mental, emotional, time, space, family, etc)?
Ask your teacher about their experience, how often they practice, types of clients they have worked with and for how long. Be clear on payment structure and timing as well as cancelation policy.
