Sharman Maher

Sharman

Sharman was fortunate enough to be exposed to the world of ballet from a very early age. Experiencing instructors from around the world she trained to a professional level at San Francisco and Pacific Ballet Schools. With her interest in movement and anatomy she pursued a license as a x-ray technician from U.C. Berkeley and Medical Admin. Certification from Empire College. Thishas enabled her to work in sports medicine and orthopedic fields.

Since Dance was in her soul, she taught ballet in Marin and Sonoma counties for 15 years while studying Pilates. With the overall similarities and benefits she decided the perfect recipe for fitness would be the combination of the love of teaching dance with Pilates. She became a certified Pilates Instructor through Pilates International on 5th Avenue in New York.

Sharman’s goal is to bring a strong mastery of dance, functional anatomy, biomechanics and Pilates exercise repertoire to all levels of fitness. She wishes to inspire and motivate students to discover healthier movement patterns and more freedom for all body types and fitness levels. This can be achieved by using the Pilates principles to seek a balance in training with a creative, positive and fun atmosphere.
