Sharlene Bund McKinley
Owner/Teacher of Cerca Trova Yoga on Darby Road in Havertown PA
My practice began when I was 16 years of age, in high school. My mother and I would go to classes together. I fell in love with my practice the first time my feet met my mat and I continue to study as I travel through life. After High School I pursued a degree in Marine Biology, studied Photography, Outdoor Pursuits, and Yoga. Over the years I have combined my love of science, art, outdoor pursuits, and the eight limbs of a yoga practice. My yoga practice has given me comfort, wisdom and strength during both difficult and wonderful times. 10 years ago, I fell in love with Vanda Scaravelli's-inspired Hatha Yoga practice, centered around the spine. I met One of Vanda Scaravelli's students, Diane Long. Presently, I have fallen in love with a slightly different practice called Heart Yoga: The Sacred Marriage of Yoga and Mysticism. My teachers are Karuna & Paul Erickson and Ally Bogard in Nelson, B.C., Canada. I love to teach to anyone who is interested in a developing a yoga practice. I teach all age groups from Prenatal to Senior. Please do not let age, flexibility, pain, weight issues, or experience hold you back from coming to a class at the studio. I welcome all to practice with us here at Cerca Trova Yoga. Yoga is from the Sanskrit root "yuj", meaning "to yoke" or "to unite." The doors are wide open for everyone, all the time.
